Latest Insider version of Excel 1803 (9127.2004) does not support DPI Aware RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All!

    Does anyone know why DPI Aware is not supported in the latest insider version of Excel 1803 (9127.2004)?
    The manifest still has the <dpiAware> true </ dpiAware> property set.
    But Excel has stopped receiving the corresponding Windows API messages. The Display Settings button at the bottom of the Excel window disappeared.
    We have been working on supporting various DPI for our add-ins and now our work has stopped.

  • Solved by adding the dpiAwareness property to the Excel manifest.

                 <asmv3:application xmlns:asmv3="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">

                               <asmv3:windowsSettings xmlns="">



                               <asmv3:windowsSettings xmlns="">

                                            <dpiAwareness>PerMonitorV2, unaware</dpiAwareness>
