Visual issue in interface

Postby karl0s » Thu May 28, 2009 2:15 pm

I have tried reinstalling this 3 times on a machine removed and reinstalled java too, but as you can see it doesn't look as it should

Any suggestions would be great :)

Thanks,

I have removed the install completly even deleting the folder from program files

I have also tried the latest version and the beta releases.

what's actually wrong with it apart from the fact that you are using the classic desktop?

Hi,

The window is too small as in the black gap on the right ( meaning that if you try to click anything within the software you have to move the mouse an inch or two to the right of what you want to click.

A lot of the text in other tabs in the software is also unreadable.

I think its more of a java problem - but not sure how to proceed after trying to remove everything completly and reinstall from scratch.

Only other thing i can think of would be to reinstall windows itself.

Knowing that, plus that it happened over all three OS's, says to me that Shagrath is right and it's a compatibility issue between your graphics card and Java. Try updating the drivers and/or going through the manufacturer's support website.
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.
