    I'm trying the new build 50 of PerfectDisk 8 and notice that when run in a window, the window cannot be reduced in size, only enlarged.
    Also everytime the program is run, the window gets a tiny bit larger ... with no way of it being reduced again.
    This did not occur in build 48.
    Is anyone else finding this, or is it just my computer? (I don't see anything about it on the Raxco support site).

    Heh, I love it here
    I was just checking about whether the new update was notified and you guys are already onto a problem.
    Thanks for posting: have you messaged Raxco yet? Response?

    Regards

    Have sent an e-mail to Raxco yesterday but no response yet (just their automated reply).

    I have the same problem. The bottom of the page is off the screen and cannot be read.

    Until I read this thread I hadn't even noticed. PD just fills my screens 21 inch CRT 1024 x 768 and LCD 19 inch 1280 x 1024

    Here's the response I got from Raxco today:

    ~No private email postings allowed here without the consent of the sender - Ron~


    I tried it and there's no difference. The window still cannot be reduced in size, only enlarged. (I've let Raxco know)
    Back to the drawing board Raxco.
    Awaiting further advice ...

    I've just made another discovery after posting the previous comment.
    If I don't use the bottom right corner re-size grab, but just grab the bottom horizontal window border, I can enlarge the window and then reduce it but only to the size that it was originally. At least it can be reduced though, but not by doing it from the bottom right corner.
    Very weird!
    I'm not sure if this behaviour was there before deleting the previously mentioned registry key.

    This behaviour already exists before you delete that registry key... ;)

    I accidentally maximized the PD window and now it can NOT be reduced back to it's original size. It has been over a week now and Raxco still has not addressed this issue. :thumbd:
