Tiny application icons on high dpi screen

    EDIT: Aha! Yes, if I edit the manifest in Vegas and tell it dpiAware is FALSE, everything scales correctly

    Hi - I have the same issue - had it in Win 8 and now in Win 10. Sony said "Vegas Pro 13 is not optimized for display on very high-DPI monitors..."

    I'd like to try your solution, but I have no idea how to edit a manifest. I did some research but could not find anything "simple" - maybe I'm missing something.

    Please let me know, or direct me to where I can find out how to do this.

    Thank you!

    Windows 10 Vegas 13 problem

    {Please, Please help, that would help us out so much! Thanks for reading!}

    Dear 3DPiper and others

    I'm in the exact same situation as Alan... I'm on Windows 10 as well and my icons are really small in Sony Vegas Pro 13. I have been doing a lot of research about the manifest file of Vegas. However, I cannot succeed in editing it or creating an external one...
    I have put so many hours into this problem, yet I haven't found a solution.
    To you reading this, I beg you to please help me and the others, and Alan, out. That would mean so much to us!!!

    If you have any questions about our problem, feel free to ask.

    If anyone would be so kind to help us out, thank you very, very, very much! It would mean the wolrd to us!
    (sorry for being a bit pushy)

    Kind Regards

    Dear Daskeladden and others

    First of all I would like to Thank you for bringing up a solution that works! Thank you very much!

    When I got Vegas to scale correctly, I was really glad to see it working, however after rebooting my laptop, the scaling issue returned... I can refix it every time I boot up my laptop, but as you might understand, that's not really that practical.
    Do you know how I could be able to apply this solution permanently? That would be such a huge help! Thanks a lot for replying!

    kind regards
