Vista bug: drawing of layered windows does not work as expected RRS feed

  • Question

  • When having a dual-screen setup where the secondary monitor is on the left, the background for transparent layered windows ist not drawn correctly.
    For better understanding, I made a screenshot which can be seen here:

    Vista uses the background from the primary (right) screen to draw the background of the application (in this case Miranda IM), whereas it should use the background from the secondary (left) screen.

    I'm using Vista Ultimate x64 with a nVidia 8800 GTX and 169.12 drivers.
    On Windows XP SP2 everything works ok with the same hardware/software setup.
