FJDS Setup?

Bill Owner/Technician Michigan Posted   Latest   Edited  

I have been using a windows 7 computer for FJDS until today. I was having a issue doing a PMI & configuring a SJB and know I am technically suppose to use windows 10 PC so I figured I would set up a window 10 computer and see if it would help my issue knowing if I call for assistance they probably would not help due to this.

I have a window size issue i cant seem to figure out? the words are on top of each other I cant enter my code? 

this computer does also have GM GDS 2 and tech2win installed on it.

Bill, right click anywhere open on the desktop, a menu box should open at the bottom there's a display setting option and a customizable display option I believe that the setting is under the custom option to reduce icon and text sizing.

Not having any luck with that idea Craig. The issue only effects FJDS pop ups nothing else.

Select the scale and layout option and it should allow you to adjust the program display.

If you updated to Win10, you will need to reload FJDS to operate it. If you used another computer, the FJDS program is not recognizing it. Going from Win 7 to Win 10 is not simply an update. Win 10 is a whole new platform. Win 10 will overwrite any existing programs.

I agree with Craig. Click on the windows icon on the bottom left your task bar at the bottom of the screen your “Programs” list will appear. Just type the word text and you will see an option to make text bigger. Play with the settings “Make text bigger” and “Make everything bigger” I would think that one or the other setting may help you with your problem.

On desktop, right click on FJDS icon, select Properties, select Compatibility Tab, Click on Change high DPI settings. after doing some reading you should be able to adjust the FJDS GUI display. You will encounter many problems if you keep using Windows 7, Use Windows 10 Pro 64 bit.

using X1 Carbon thinkpad normal/recommended display setting is 200% - it is necessary to change the setting to 100% to make the FJDS font appear correctly. Craig C. tip will get you to the correct place to change it
