I recently installed the AlamDV demo and have come across a problem. When I start up the program the window apears on the left of the screen and is greatly reduced in width. The contents of the window are whatever was last in front of it. If I try to create a new project I get the menus but when I select the file to open nothing happens.

I have tryed re-installing but this doesn't help. I'm running in 32bit colour and have the latest versions of quicktime and flash player. If anyone can help I would be very greatful.

Alex.

Can you give us some information on your system and what os you are running. Also a screenshot might help.

I'm not that god at program coding, but wouldn't it work strange if you had your start page on the right. As I said before, I have no idea.

Alright guys, thanks for your help I've sorted it. I was trying out different configurations after what Redhawk said. If I disable my second monitor I don't have any of the problems.

Can't think why this should effect it but there you go. Although its a bit of a hastle disabling the monitor every time I want to use the program. Does anyone know of a workaround?
