UI not updating on MSVDM


Recommended Posts

For legit Windows XP customers, there is an option to download Microsoft Power Toys [http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx], and one of the neat features is called MSVDM, Microsoft Virtual Desktop Manager. What it does is that it allows 4 simulated desktops like linux's KDE environment. When the user click Window + V, it will list all of em, and Window + 1 ... 4 will toggle between windows 1 to 4. For uTorrent 1.3, I noticed that the UI (download speed, downloaded %, graph etc.) will not update on any desktop other than the one that triggered the launch. IE: minimize to tray, then go to first desktop, open from tray, toggle to second desktop, then alt + tab to the screen (so it brings it from first desktop to second), and the UI stops updating on screen.
