I have read the many a thread describing various incompatibilities between WB and two of the more popular multi monitor tools, Display Fusion and Ultramon. There does not seem to be a consensus on what works and what doesn't, in fact from what i can tell, it's down right subjective.
I own Ultramon pro and have it installed on Win7 and have just got back my WB, and of course i'm getting skinning issues with the taskbar on the secondary monitor. I have read of some that have no issues and some with many issues using either one of the monitor tools.
So to anyone out there using Win7, WB7 and either Ultramon or DisplyFusion, do you have any tips or info i can make use of to get the secondary taskbar to skin correctly?
Generally speaking, and i am yet to test it with a multitude of skins, but the second taskbar does not skin, it simply retains the aero look and color i have as default. (or with some skins, changes to a classic windows look) If i have an open program on that taskbar, there is skinning of the button for said program, but not the bar itself, which seemed to be the same issues in the other threads on here dealing with this. (most of which are some months, or even years old now)
Has anybody found and/or using a different monitor tool that works well with WB?
I don't mind having to make another purchase if something other than Ultramon will work. All i am looking for is a taskbar on my secondary, that's all i require of the software. (one that will skin obviously!)
That being said, WB takes precedence over a monitor tool, so im dealing with a most ugly secondary task bar atm...
