Remarks

Configuration of the end-user computers

Depending on the configuration of the end-user computers, the DDW feature may have no effect.
Indeed, the DDW feature is affected by the characteristics of the video card, the speed of the processor, ...
If a problem occurs, ask the end users to update the driver of their video card.
Remark: To operate, the end-user computers must:
  • have a display mode greater than 256 colors.
  • be in 32-bit or 64-bit mode.
  • be running Windows 2000 or later.
  • use the maximum level of "Hardware acceleration" for the video card (advanced display properties of the computer).

Dimming rate

The default dimming rate on the windows is set to 18 %. To change this rate, use WinRateDDW.
