DisplayLink Devices with Auto InstallUp until 2009, a few devices based on DisplayLink technology included an auto install driver feature. This required the DisplayLink USB driver to switch the device from being a mass storage device to a video device. From Windows 10 Anniversary Update, we use the Microsoft USB driver, and this does not support the switching between a mass storage device and a video device.
Therefore it is not possible to support these DisplayLink enabled devices from Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
Examples for affected devices are:
- LG L206WU USB monitor
- Samsung 940UX USB monitor
- First generation HP USB 2.0 Dock Station (Model number: HSTNN-S01X)
- InFocus IN1100 Projector
Diamond vstream WPCTVPROThis Diamond device is a wireless USB device. The wireless part of this product is not provided by DisplayLink and is not part of the DisplayLink drivers. It appears that the DisplayLink device is not appearing on the USB bus correctly due to the wireless link. This problem is outside DisplayLink technology and suggest contacting Diamond if this product is not working after updating to Windows 10 Anniversary update.
Device Manager - Error Code 10There have been some instances of DisplayLink devices with a yellow "!" in device manager, and opening the properties shows that they have an error code 10. This has been either due to a faulty device, or due to a device with auto install (which are not supported as covered above) and the DisplayLink video driver is trying to talk to the wrong interface putting it into an error state.
For some USB graphics adapters (USB->DVI and USB->VGA), we will be able to implement a workaround for one particular hardware fault. It will require both DisplayLink driver R8.2 and Windows 10 Creators Update as this needs an OS change.
Device Manager - Error Code 43There have been some instances of DisplayLink devices with a yellow "!" in device manager, and opening the properties shows that they have an error code 43. Before contacting our technical support with the log files for analysis, please check if you are using OBASE or Duet Display. You need to have their latest drivers for Windows 10 Anniversary Update as the older ones are not compatible with this new operating system.
Ethernet Network Connection Stopped WorkingSome anti-virus or endpoint protection software are blocking the creation of network adapters. If you see the "DisplayLink Network Adapter NCM" in Device Manager but you don't see any DisplayLink network adapter in your network adapter list, then you are most likely in this case. Simply reinstall DisplayLink software making sure you don't have other applications blocking it.
OpenGL 1.1 Reported Instead of 4.xDisplayLink adapter is not a graphics processing unit (GPU), therefore DisplayLink does not compute graphics and the notion of OpenGL support does not apply to it. We have flagged an issue in the Windows operating system which means OpenGL applications will use the GDI Generic (No Acceleration) renderer instead of the OpenGL 4.x renderer from the graphics card when the DisplayLink device is selected as main display. Until the operating system is fixed, please use the primary graphics card as main display.
Leftovers, Paint Effect or Application Not RefreshingDisplayLink and Microsoft have been made aware of an issue visible especially when using three or more indirectly connected displays. The effect is the application like Google Chrome would look frozen. This can also happen with other applications, and the taskbar. Some applications will refresh when mousing over, when others may not.
This is currently being worked on. You may mitigate this by temporarily dropping the number of displays, or by resizing the application window which will trigger a refresh.
If you are affected by this issue, you will see the corruption in a screenshot taken with Print Screen key. In the unlikely event you do not see the corruption in the Print Screen, please do report this new issue to DisplayLink for investigation.
