FORUM Forums Software CLS2SIM Software CLS Profile Manager GUI issue

    Whenever I have XP11 running and open up the CLS2Sim Profile Editor window it’s very small and also looking at the Buttons tab it’s unreadable as seen below. I’m using a 48″ 4K screen and I have the scaling in Windows 10 Display properties set to 200%.

    To me it seems to be a scaling issue with CLS2Sim but weirdly enough only happens with XP11 running. Without XP11 running I don’t have this issue.

    This is what it looks like.

    Sure thing Stefan, I’ll do that.



    Is Diego back from his holidays yet?

    Hi Webmaximus

    Jup, I’m back, sorry for the delayed answer.

    The short answer is, this is not a bug, but a limitation that has no proper workaround, so it will stay as is for the foreseeable future.

    Here’s the longer answer to explain the technical aspect of the problem:

    The weird thing here is that you only observe this with XP11 running.
    Normally when you set the DPI to higher values, you always will have that effect.
    As you can see, UI elements like headers, textboxes, dropdowns, etc, will sort of break, when you change DPI.

    That’s not a bug, but a a combination of limitations of the UI technology CLS2Sim is currently built upon and its design.
    It was optimized from start to run on XP, which was never intended for high resolutions.
    (It uses Winforms instead of WPF, with a fixed size UI.)

    This isn’t possible to fix, except for starting from scratch, so for the foreseeable future it will have to stay that way.



    Thanks for the explanation.

    Quite annoying not being able to use CLS2Sim properly with XP running but not much to do about it then.

    Wishing you a great weekend Diego!


    Just wanted to ask if this issue at least is on a to-do-list to be addressed at some point in the future?

    I for one think it would be really nice with a fully working UI even when XP is running.



    Can you try newest version 4.10.8
