Display link software defualts

Hi, we have Displaylink software on XP, part of a port replicator install.

When i choose a setting    lets say Notebook monitor off.  it does just that the output just goes to projector]]unplug theport replicator and screen comes back   "Great" just what we want.

But I cant get this to be "default behaviour"
i have exported the registry for display viewer  for the setting i want but when put back there is no diffrence

only works whn i do th echange manually

any ideas?   is it because its a hardware device being pluged in (port replicator)

I think for this point that there is a limitation in Windows XP which does not allow you to desactivate the Laptop's Main screen by default,
This is possible in Win7.

What DisplayLink software are you using ?

Hi spoke to Display link too (5.5) and its not supported, they gave me a reg key but thst didnt work either.
tetsing is showing you are correct XP just doesnt support it

I dont mean from turning the laptop on, when the port replicator i splugge din  the ideal would be to switch laptop monitor off  (I dont know why client request :-)   you would think two monitors is better
