Just noticed something strange Elite Pilot IFR simulator does to windows 7 ?

Recommended Posts

If you download and  install the elite ifr pilot / jet demo  then run it


whilst the program is running it disables


enable desktop composition !!! in windows 7



option found here


control panel - system and security


advanced system setting - advanced tab  - settings visual effects tab  / custom




is this allowed ??


for a program to disable an import feature like this??





the tick box option  (enable desktop composition)


only returns once you reboot 



So currently Elite IFR program only works in full screen


Im guessing they have done it on purpose to stop people making extra dragable  windows  out of there full screen only sim


like this 

one window resised and draged onto a separite monitor  for the panel

and another replicated window  for the upfront forward display 


(using ontop window replicator program)



hense you could create a Elite IFR home cockpit from doing this !!
