  • Microsoft Windows CE 5.0


You use multiple monitors that have different resolutions to form a virtual desktop. On the monitors that have lower resolution, some areas of the virtual desktop cannot be displayed. If you point to an area that cannot be displayed on the monitor, a Graphics, Windowing, and Events Subsystem (GWES) exception occurs in Windows CE 5.0.


This problem occurs because GWES requires a full rectangle when multiple monitors are implemented. If multiple monitors have different resolutions, the monitors cannot form a full rectangle.
