Landscape / menu issue on Emulator RRS feed

  • Question

  • Even the page supports Landscape mode (for the page itself Landscape mode works) but the menu isn't in Landscape mode:

    Any idea?

    Maybe the reason is: https://skydrive.live.com/#cid=9015C1E219CDFADA&id=9015C1E219CDFADA%213394

    But a menu is nothing "special", isn't it? Using only Silverlight at the moment and doing no XNA development ...

    It is very possible that is the reason (your system not meeting the hardware graphics requirements). Even commonplace items (such as the appbar menu) leverage the GPU. It's a reason why the base system looks so smooth even compared to a dual core processor Android phone. Check if updated drivers are available for your graphics card. If you're using a desktop computer, you can get a new graphics card very cheaply that meets the requirements (I had to upgrade mine and it cost about $50).

    Graphics hardware & software requirements do matter a lot. I had a Vista machine with graphics with one version less than the required. That made the right-arrow icon on the start screen not to turn to left in the program list page.

    So get the graphics fixed.

    Hadn't that problem with the previous emulator (without Mango, SDK 7.0). Seems that I have to update DivX? But another application which I am using only works fine with my current DivX version ...

    According to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff626524%28v=VS.92%29.aspx the only thing I have to update is DDI (I have 9 but 10 or above is required). Any hint updating only DDI to v10 and keep the rest untouched?

  • what does divX have to do with emulator ?

    divX is a video codec.

    emulator has DirectX requirements that is a layer over graphics card.

    the manufacturer of graphics card usually publishes updates to the drivers. default microsoft version (or one that comes with windows update) lags the manufacturers release by a few versions.
