    I’m marking this complete, as Windows 10 Anniversary update has the best compatibility for DisplayLink. This is due to a new interface for DisplayLink graphics developed between DisplayLink and Microsoft being available, as covered here:

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/525125

    This thread is becoming a place for any user to post problems on Windows 10, hence marking it complete, rather than people expecting the problem they are seeing is being worked on. If you have problems getting the device to work on Windows 10, please refer to this article, and if this does not solve the issue, please contact us:

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/942862

    The original idea for this was to improve application compatibility with DisplayLink on Windows 10 under the new architecture. This is something we are looking into, with Microsoft. It is caused because DisplayLink now appears as its own video driver, rather than part of existing video cards. This means applications that use a…

  2. very quickly release the drivers for Windows 10

    Windows 10 gets released at the end of July. I am already using the Tech Review. There will be a big need and demand for a product like your to compatible with Windows 10 - even right now with those of us that have switched ove.

  3. Use secondary graphics adapter for rendering as well

    Laptops with two graphics adapters (Intel HD + dedicated) would highly benefit, if DisplayLink would render the data with the stronger graphics adapter as well.

    This idea has been surpassed by the architecture update now available for DisplayLink in Windows 10 Anniversary update. The OS now has an interface for DisplayLink graphics to use the GPUs, and DissplayLink no longer has control over the GPU it can use.

    This either makes the idea “complete” or “declined”. I’m marking “complete” assuming the OS now does this for the DisplayLink driver.

  4. Problem with new version 7.9M3 - Office Protected View

    I encountered a Problem with the new version 7.9M3 when opening Office documents from remote Location. I had to remove the "Protected view" functionality or alternatively store the document first on the local drive to be able to open the Office document.

  5. Not working on ubuntu 16.04

    After I upgraded to 16.04 LTS, I could not use my DisplayLinks graphics/ethernet adapter for graphics (ethernet works fine). I recently installed the newest driver (1.2.65) but I get this error:

    Warning: dlm.service changed on disk. Run 'systemctl daemon-reload' to reload units.
    Job for dlm.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status dlm.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

    I run journalctl as suggested by the error message and here is what I get:

  7. Support for LUTs

    I have a laptop connected with an external monitor through a USB dock. It seems that DisplayLink does not support LUT as the ICC profile creation software (XRite i1Profiler) cannot complete the ICC profile creation for the secondary monitor connected through the USB Dock. The software works fine if I connect the monitor directly to the laptop HDMI port.

  8. Fix the Linux driver so that it doesn't use 5-15% CPU when my DisplayLink device is _unplugged_.

    When unplugged, I consistently (and continuously, not just short spikes) see the DisplayLinkManager process take up 5-15% CPU. I don't understand why it's using so much CPU when there's literally nothing for it to do. It's really hurting my battery life & performance.

  9. Resolve the compatibility issue with Duet Display, Twomon, Spacedesk, etc.

    After I purchased a USB Type C dock driven by DisplayLink technology for my laptop, a big issue derived: every time I want to use Duet Display with my iPad Pro or Twomon USB with my Pixel C, I would have to uninstall the DisplayLink driver before I plug any of my tablets. When I get home and try to connect to my dock, I would have to go through the setup process again. This is just a big inconvenience for people like me.

  11. Please allow the DisplayLink Driver to be disabled.

    As someone who uses a dedicated GPU in alternation with the Integrated GPU. It is BEYOND frustrating when my Nvidia GPU will not switch on because of the DisplayLink driver software. There is no option in windows itself to turn it off, and there is nothing provided by DisplayLink either.

    It cripples productivity when I have to UNINSTALL the DL driver just to use my dedicated GPU.

    Please fix this before you guys release any additional updates as this has been going on for a LONG time now.

    I love my AOC usb monitor. It's great, only after I install…

    DisplayLink does work on Mojave with v5.x or later. If you are still having issues, make sure that the DisplayLink kernel extension is enabled as described here:
    https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1188004
    If the kext is enabled and it is still not working, please send us a message through the “Contact Us” form on this site. We can’t support you properly through the comments system here.

  14. BIOS support?

    UEFI BIOS driver please

  16. Can you fix the issue with dual graphics cards?

    I have had a problem with your displaylink products for months now, it's causing my entire OS to hand. It seems I'm not the only one, I found the below forum post showing multiple people have the same issue.
    http://www.displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?t=63963

    I've tried cleanups, reinstalling the latest drivers and all I could think of. The only way I can get the system to stop crashing is if I always reboot my PC right after I disconnect display link each and every time which is ridiculous. I wouldn't buy a laptop if I wanted to reboot 5 times a day.

    There is…

    This should now be fixed in the latest V7.9 M5 release from DisplayLink

  17. Some applications detect DisplayLink as incompatible display driver. Problem exists with Adobe Premiere Elements 14, X-Plane, GoPro Quik

    When using DisplayLink some applications show incompatible display driver error. Problem exists with Adobe Premiere Elements 14, X-Plane, GoPro Quik on Windows 10 and I'think at last since version 8 of drivers. Solution is to open them on laptop screen and then switch to displays connected via DisplayLink (in my case i-tec USB 3.0 docking station). It would be nice if it could be solved.

  20. Windows 10 with 7.9M3 (Yoga 900)

    When windows 10 with 7.9M3 on a yoga 900 goes to sleep and is connected to the dock, it doesn't come back.

    Also, if I unplug the dock when the laptop sleeps, when I wake it up nothing works anymore.
