How to run my application on the second screen

WinXP SP3 (WindowsUpdate done)
Ranorex 3.0.5

Hello,
How can I set parameter to run my application on the second screen, not on the main screen?

Best regards

Hi,

You can use the Windows and the left/right direction key to move your application, but this only works with Win7.
There is no Ranorex specific functionality or parameter for such a case. In general, Windows will start an application on the screen that the application was closed on the last time - unless the application itself specifies a screen location it wants to be started on.

Regards,

OK, I will try to find a workaround, because it is a real problem for me.
Thanks for your help.
