WWT FinderScope bug? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone,

    I'm having a nasty problem with the latest version's FinderScope.

     As you can see, the whole square is sort of murky, which makes it hard to see anything. According to the official screenshots, it's not supposed to look like that. ;)

    FYI: My computer is running WinXP SP3, with .NET framework 2.0 SP2 (also 3.0 and 3.5).

    I'd appreciate it if someone could help me out.

  • This is not a WWT specific but, but a limitation of Win XP. While WWT does run in XP, it not recomended. XP uses the older XPDM drivers that don't handle transparent Windows like Vista and Windows 7 do. Therer may be some newer display drivers that will work better.


    The same issue can occur in Windows 7 or Vista if Aero is turned off (XP compatibility Mode).
