Any fix for invisible moving windows on multiple gfx cards?

This bug has been reported a long time ago, however I'm still suffering issues.

When you are running multiple graphics cards, your windows will become invisible when you move them IF and ONLY IF the window move was initiated on a monitor running on a non-primary graphics card.

Bug confirmed on a separate machine with a different hardware configure.  It seems to be universal.

This, really, is a PITA.  Is there going to be any fix for this?

Just so you know this isn't confined solely to multiple gfx cards, I have Gefore560TI 448 cores (running 313.96 drivers, also have issue on every driver I've tried fromn 306 up). I get NO window when first dragging a window, no If i let go and drag the same window around I get the animations. Just in case this helps.

I got this problem with 2 graphic cards..and 3 screens

I just got Window FX5.

 

Got window / and 3 monitors

One main monitor 42 " and 2 side monitors 27"

I got 2 graphic cards: GeForce GTX 280 and GeForce GTX 480

GTX 280 run the 2 27" monitors and GTX480 runs the 42" monitor.

Solution 1080p,1824 x1014

Window FX 5 works perfect when I do NOTHING on the the third monitor (screen).

But very soon if i use the third monitor (screen) a clean long window pops up on the main screen and soon after all 3 screens get dotted with big black squares, all open windows get extremely slow and all i can do is restart.

I like to ask in WindowFX5 is tested with 3 monitors (screens) and if there is anything i can do to avoid this issue...

also happening here, has been happening the whole time I've had windowsfx... a few months maybe.

 

win7pro

2 amd/ati hd6950's driver v13.1 w/eyefinity group on 3 monitors, extended desktop on 4th. only happens on 4th monitor constantly and sometimes on all monitors until reset.

 

when might we expect an update or some news?  I keep checking updates...  is discouraging to keep seeing "No updates for WindowsFX were found"

Happening for me. GTX 295 driving two central monitors showing wobbly windows fine. On two outer monitors hanging off Nvidia 8800GT I get invisible windows when moving (and no wobbly effect of course). Turning off "Wobbly windows" makes windows show again (momentum working fine).

Have tried many variations of settings and latest nvidia drivers, no change.

Guys, support has told me that they have passed this to the developers.

 

I have the same problem on my Windows 7, my Windows 8 doesn't have the problem.

I'll just add to the list of complaints. I have the same problem with a ThinkPad W520. running Win7, in its docking station, with an AOC monitor.

AOC monitor is primary monitor.

ThinkPad monitor is secondary monitor.

Window move initiated on primary monitor, with Wobbly Windows - works fine.

Window move initiated on secondary monitor, w/ WW - window is invisible until I drop it.

I just paid to re-up for another year.

Love your product but Let's fix this soon!

Works great on Windows 8, so I can't imagine it being that hard to fix on Windows 7.
