FG 2011 Tablet

Postby jmahun » Tue Nov 29, 2011 7:03 am

We've installed and licensed the tablet edition of FG 2011 on our Win 7 lab computers. On our old Win XP systems when we ran FG 2010 in demo mode, we had a choice of interface (Full-screen, portrait, or landscape). Now, FG 2011 comes up in full-screen mode automatically. Is there a way to choose the interface type?

Generally if you start the program it will display the menu for Portrait, Landscape, or full screen.

If you start it with the command line parameter of -desktop it will start in full screen mode.

In the first release of FG 2011, the desktop icon had an extra flag set on the shortcut to force it to always start in Full Screen mode. If you want, just right click on the shortcut and edit the Target path: "C:\Program Files (x86)\MicroSurvey\MicroSurvey FieldGenius\2011\FieldGenius.exe" -desktop and remove "-desktop". After this change, the program will start up like it did previously and allow you to choose the mode.

Note: I modified the FieldGenius install package so future updates will install shortcuts that have the "-desktop" flag removed.
