We have a situation where we are preparing to use a new application. The application can only be viewed correctly in 1024 X 768. Our users that use 800 x 600 stated that changing their resolution to 1024 x 768 is hurting their eyes. Please see the last experts question that I created about this issue for more background: http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28702569/How-to-make-your-screen-look-larger-and-still-keep-the-same-resolution.html
I think I may have found a work-around: http://www.nextofwindows.com/how-to-change-dpi-settings-through-a-remote-desktop-session-on-windows-7-or-server-2008-r2
This hot fix will allow a changed DPI from a host PC to be transferred to a Remote Desktop PC. If I change the resolution on the host PC to 1024 x 768 and then change the DPI to 200% The other application that was too small is a lot bigger and more readable to the users. Equally important the new application seems to be un-changed it is still readable and fits in the 1024 x 768 screen. The problem is when I do a remote desktop the DPI settings are not transferred to the Remote Dsktop session.
I then installed this hotfix on 1 PC (Windows 7 Professional) and since thsi hotfix is still being tested I have not installed it on the Citrix Server yet (Windows Server 2008 R2); but, when I did a remote desktop there was no change in appearance of the applications in the remote desktop sessions.
I wonder if I will have to install this hotfix on the Widows 2008 R2 server as well? Is anyone familiar with this hot fix ( KB Article Number(s): 2726399 )? it appears that some more experimentation is required. I can try to spin up a new Windows Server 2008 R2 VM and try to test this theory out with Remote Desktop.
