Setting up Multiple Displays in TD to be configured during FBA.

    Hi Group,

    I am attempting to develop a Windows XP SP3 embedded image for a
    device with three video cards of
    same model, using the Microsoft supplied NVIDIA driver.

    I want to configure the three different displays setup as 640 x 480 x
    32 @ 60hz in an extended desktop fashion.

    I can successfully build the image with one video card installed.
    With FBA I can set the graphics
    cards settings and the FBAChangeDisplaySettings reports Success in the
    FBALOG.txt

    However when I have more than one card installed FBA fails to sets the
    screen resolution of any card.

    18:19:22 - [FBAChangeDisplaySettings] Settings: [640, 480, 32, 60]
    18:19:22 - [FBAChangeDisplaySettings] Found settings!
    18:19:22 - [FBAChangeDisplaySettings] Changing settings!
    18:19:22 - [FBAChangeDisplaySettings] Failed!

    Is it possible to have FBA set the resolution for multiple cards
    during FBA?

    Is there any trick to do this using FBA? Any hints on where to look to
    locate the issue. I can do the setup
    correctly post boot interactivley, however I want to develop a image
    that is completely automated without
    any manual input.

    Also how do you set the "Extend my Windows Desktop onto this Monitor"
    flag? Is this the issue as the 2nd and 3rd cards are not currently
    part of the desktop? Is this a registry setting or do I need to write
    an exe to achieve this?

    Thanks

    Stuart

    Hi Group,

    I have written a program that extends the desktop across the video
    cards that I runonce during FBA, however FBA is still failing to set
    resolution.

    18:19:22 - [FBAChangeDisplaySettings] Settings: [640, 480, 32, 60]
    18:19:22 - [FBAChangeDisplaySettings] Found settings!
    18:19:22 - [FBAChangeDisplaySettings] Changing settings!
    18:19:22 - [FBAChangeDisplaySettings] Failed!

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should look at next to
    resolve this?

    Thanks

    Stuart
