Yes - again both issues are due to the applications expecting hardware acceleration that is not available on DisplayLink screens under XP.

You will need to be in extend mode to make these apps work. The Windows mirror driver has no HW acceleration at all. In extend our driver will correctly report to the app what HW acceleration is supported. Its then up to the app to make sure it adapts to only use the HW acceleration level available.

If you use extend mode and make sure that when the app launches, it starts on the DisplayLink display, the app may then correctly work if it falls back to not using hardware acceleration.
