Cursor control problems with The Grid 2 in Vista and Windows 7

When using Computer Control workspace you may find the commands to move the mouse cause the mouse to jump to, or click the wrong position on the screen. This can occur with Windows Vista or Windows 7 when you have used the ‘Set Custom text Size’ to change the size of text in applications to a value greater than 120%.

To work around this problem, you need to set the compatibility mode for Grid 2 to disable display scaling:

1) Make sure Grid 2 is not running. Start Windows Explorer and locate the file:

“C:\Program Files\Sensory Software\The Grid 2\The Grid 2.exe”


2) Right click the file and select ‘Properties’


3) On the ‘Compatibility’ tag, click the button ‘Change settings for all users’


4) On the ‘Compatibility settings for all users’ select ‘Disable display scaling on high DPI settings’

5) Click ‘OK’ to close all dialog boxes.
