Force Application to use Dual Screens in Windows 7

Hey guys.  We are running a program that is having issues with our users who run Windows 7 with dual monitors.  Is it possible to force an application to run in dual screen mode or single screen mode?  I guess I'm asking if there are any options I can change within Windows 7 to test out.  Thanks.

No, there are no means. Most systems are set up to have a big graphic area consisting of several monitors, and so all the application sees is some strange window coordinates.
Applications can ask for monitor information, though, so if they are prepared, they can manage that.

What is your issue exactly?

When a user is running the program say on the left screen and a pop opens up withing the application it will go right in the middle of both monitors.

That is because the pop-up is set up to be screen centered (instead of application window centered) - and the desktop screen spans both monitors. Obviously the application is not multimonitor-aware. The only way I know of to circumvent that is to use a multimonitor tool like Actual Multiple Monitors or UltraMon, which are able to control window placements.
