#5039385 No vsync without Aero composition; cannot turn on Aero on CreateDesktop() mad...

Posted by on 05 March 2013 - 01:38 AM

I think I know ....


On the 26th Microsoft put out an update that made the Windows 7 desktop work like the Windows 8 desktop.


Basically, DWM always runs.  It cannot be turned off now.  Also, the whole display is rendered with DirectX.


I have been looking into this stuff because I use Fraps to record my desktop.. but that no longer works :(


See if anything here helps



good luck

I'm not a pro, but I would suggest not throwing that exception. You can gain some good debugging info if you print out a stacktrace.
Also, by dealing with the exceptions at the lowest level you don't have to keep throwing them... they will trickle right to the top of your code if you're not careful

Hope that helps somewhat.
