Help Setting Up "Virtual Monitor"?

I am trying to set-up a virtual monitor to try using iControl DCS without the screens on my main FS screen. I've read up on virtual monitors and even had one working on my old system. I can't seem to get one to work again thought. I have Windows 7 with a GTX 770. What I am finding online is that I should be able to select "detect" under the Windows "screen resolution" window, followed by adding an non-detected monitor. Problem I have is that whenever I press "detect" nothing happens and I'm not able to enter a monitor.

 

I remember before I had to use a program to create this virtual monitor, but would love to build it in to Windows instead. I don't know if it matters, but I used to have my TV connected through a DVI-to-HDMI cable, but have since removed that.

 

Any help or thoughts? I'm just getting back in to the A-10C again after a while away and would love to get this setup. Thanks for any help.

Hi mate, I think you need to install these programs to make it work, it's the only way I find that works.

 

Hope it helps

 

With a bit of playing around I found that I could create a fake display to place the mfcds and cdu on. I got the info from this forum post http://superuser.com/questions/62051/is-there-a-way-to-fake-a-dual-second-monitor

 

first download install tightVNC http://www.tightvnc.com/download.php

Then download install this demoForge driver http://www.demoforge.com/dfmirage.htm

 

Right click on desktop and go to Screen resolution then press detect. Hopefully it should detect another monitor that you can force on using vga. You can then extend your desktop onto the new monitor.

 

I haven't fully tested this method but I got it working on both my main desktop computer and laptop (both using an AMD graphics card).

 

I was then able to set a-10c and iControl to use the extra space with a bit of trial and error.
