      should be YES to both, try the DPI addition and lets know how you go.

      the DPI addition is known to inform windows to not play with font and window(hwnds of app gui) resizing
      do to resolution settings of system display.

          BACKUP the original 3 manifest bin files in the data folder of AMS installation

          simply edit a copy of each using notepad or similar and rename to original file names, rebuild(publish) your project and test.

            You can do that but if you wanted to just test without messing you can just use reshack as that makes a backup of your exe anyway and this will tell you if its going to work, if your happy its going to well then you can move to adding it to AMS's default files, its all about testing first lol.

            Lets hope the next update will include this

            I hope after xmas I start to use AMS more

              for sure: here's a better manifest layout for the DPI section:

              <asmv3:application xmlns:asmv3="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">

                  Hi, Eagle,

                  Thanks very much in sharing this solution/help, because helped me to solve another problem when I tried to build an application with AMSP 8.0.7 in Windows Vista (Home Basic), when selecting to Publish -> Build -> Accept -> Web/Email executable -> Next and checked to "Encrypt data segment". Without this updated "invokermanifest.bin", I received back only "Failed to add application manifest" errors, when trying to build any app...

                  But only 7 viewed this, until now. Maybe this comment could help anothers too, with the same problem...
