My stuff is sandboxed so I use CreateDesktop() to prevent shatter attacks. However, the new desktop has no Aero composition when created for whatever reason (though the default one does) and trying to enable it with DwmEnableComposition() fails. I have no idea why, or how to solve this problem. DwmEnableComposition() works fine on the default desktop. Is there any way to get vs vsync to work without composition? I can't get it to do so, even when forced from nvidia's driver control panel. What's the solution here?
I'm using Windows 7. In Windows 8, they say one cannot disable composition, so I'm wondering if this problem will not be present anymore there.
Edit: I forgot to mention I'm using OpenGL.
