Changing Resolutions in Vista

4 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a HDTV connected to my PC, and I use hotkeys to switch between them depending on if I want to watch a movie or surf the web

A long ass time ago I wrote a script in winXP that would change the screen resolution to the corresponding TV when the hotkey is pressed. It changes the registry values and does some fancy stuff I dont remember anymore.

I upgraded to Vista and my script dont work anymore. Anyone here know how to do basically the same thing in Vista?

Nice but only works 100% on XP for some reason.

Tested on Vista 64bit and success rate was only about 50:50...

(It never works when trying to change to 1400x1050)

So look at MSDN what they say in description/comments about these used API functions.

Also look for related API functions there ...
