SimplyPats and Windows 7

When supporting some of our SimplyPats customers who are running the sofwtare on Windows 7 we have noicted that the Splash Screen (the pretty picture displayed when SimplyPats starts up) and the About SimplyPats srceen (Help Menu - About SimplyPats) sometimes displays incorrectly.

The image appears shrunken inside a larger box.

This cosmetic fault has had me pulling my hair out for the last couple of days, so for the benefit of anyone seeing this fault I thought I would document it.

On Windows 7 if you choose to personalise the display (Right Mouse click on Desktop, Select Personalize, then select Display) you are presented with Making It Easier To Read Whats on Your Screen and some options allowing you to select Smaller (Default), Medium or Larger.

If You select Medium or Larger then this has the effect of shrinking the Splash Screen image within SimplyPats.

I suspect that I can cure this fault within SimplyPats, however it will be quite complex to sort out, for the moment I am planning to leave it as is.
