UPDATE to 8.5 - Rebuild of last 8.5 (2674) to fix problems with scaling in older versions of Windows (7,8,2008 etc)

Problems with scaling in DataEase 8.5?


Some of you have experienced problems with dialogs not scaling properly in 8.5.

This is due to a bug in windows where images don't scale if not specifically set to do so in the code.

As scaling only really became popular when resolution of screens increased the problem only became visible "now".

The problem only occurs in Windows 8 and older including Windows Server 2008 R2 and earlier.

This problem has been fixed in Windows 8.1 onwards and we also fixed it in 8.6.

However as 8.6 is not yet released we have made a fix to 8.5 for this particular problem only.

The version is called 8.5.2.2674 and is in every other way the same version as the last released version of 8.5

You can download it here:

Thanks Rainer.

Always hard to get this right around the new year ;-)
