The stylus only seem to reach a quarter of the screen in VGA mode. How to solve this?

Home / Support / Frequently Asked Questions / The stylus only seem to reach a quarter of the screen in VGA mode. How to solve this?

This problem only occurs on builds for Windows Mobile 2003. The problem is caused by the executable which is emulated on VGA displays by default.

To solve this you can modify the header of the executable by editing the resource script (resource.rc) file of the project workspace. This will allow the application to run in true VGA mode with the correct stylus coordinate system. Edit your resource file and add the following line at the bottom:

resource.rc (1 line)
  1. HI_RES_AWARE CEUX {1} // To turn off the emulation layer

Save the file and rebuild the application for the changes to take effect.
