Increased Mouse lag since the W10 Redstone / DP Driver 8.0 Update.
I have increased Mouse lag since the W10 Redstone / DisplayLink Driver 8.0 Update. I have a 3-screen Setup here. Surface Pro 3 + the DisplayLink USB Docking Station with 2 additional Screens. Working on those 2 external Screens got a bit tedious since the W10 Redstone / DisplayLink 8.0 Update. Maybe I´m too sensitive, but I feel enough mouse lag on the external Screens to slow down my daily work a bit. I´m using the DisplayLink Adapter since 2 years now and there were highs and lows regarding lag, but Version 7.9 on Windows 10 1511 was really good. Now with the new Windows / Driver Version (and the new Driver model?) it got worse.
Windows just did a new update and knocked out my Tritton 150 USB to VGA. My monitor simply didn't work. so I purchased the UGA-165 which works great – except-- for the major mouse lag. I was advised that windows 10 was still junk but didn't listen. Well, it is worse than junk. If I wait for windows it may be until forever and that's a long, long time. Windows search hasn't worked for the last year and they still have not fixed it. Having said that - what do I do to handle this mouse issue. Please help. I actually use my computer fro business and need the second screen.
I expect kind of a fix for this horrible situation from cumulative update for Windows 10, KB3194798, dated on 11th OCT but nothing goes well.
there's no changelog for this update, it probably not to fix this situation.
the Displaylink tech is really sucks now. I can't use any sweet word for "the DisplayLink"
FIX ASAP PLEASE!!!
whenever my Yoga Pro (i7, 8GB) is slightly busy (e.g. compiling) everything(?) attached via the displaylink-adapter (i.e. 2 monitor) lag terribly.
i do not think it's the mouse directly - it's just the screen-refresh which is down to 1-5fps.
(mouse stutters, scrolling stutters, keyboard-inputs stutter, videos stutter, etc...)
everything i view on the laptop's native screen is smooth as butter...!
Intolerable! I actually had to purchase a new monitor so I could work until this bug is fixed.
Same here... freshly installed Windows 1607 on Dell XPS15 (newest generation). Downloaded the newest driver and everything was working fine. After the Update to Windows 14939 the mouse is delayed and working is hardly possible. So guess we all are waiting for a new update wether its from microsoft or from displaylink... Reinstalling the driver via your "uninstaller" didnt solve the issues.
I´ve tested our several dockingstations that work with displaylink software with a Latitude Notebook and there were no errors on Windows 1607 and no errors on Windows 14939.
Finally, I've remove Dell D3100 Displaylink dock from my surface pro 3 due to horrible delays on external display and mouse. I can't not use my laptop even just do web surfing.
there are no problem to use anything when I connect the display into miniDP port on surface pro 3 directly. I really don't understand why they still don't find solution for these problem.
I posted the last comment. I am using an aoc e1649fwu with an asus computer for my business. I followed the troubleshooting hints for mouse pointer latency with no effect: all drivers are up to date. On Thursday morning I also noticed (with the mouse pointer latency) that the DisplayLink icon had disappeared. On reinstalled the latest DisplayLink driver with no effect.
I had been using the DisplayLink driver successfully as an extended desktop for months now with Windows 10. On Wednesday night, Microsoft did a massive Windows 10 update. Thursday morning, I found out that there was now mouse pointer lag and it was intolerable. I can no longer use my extended desktop. I have no time for this, just fix it asap.
Just installed update today and its even worse!! Open to any suggestions
Please Fix! commented
Mouse Lag when forced to install a Windows 10 Update this morning. The mouse Lag is very bad and makes the computer almost unusable. Please release a FIX soon.
Lenovo YOGA Laptop, Windows 10 Version: 1607, Build: 14393.187.
Only 12 comments and 42 votes this must be a minor bug then. Why don't more people come to your forum to complain.
You must must must fix this. I have a dell xps 13 tried m2 drivers I. E latest from the site and the lag is awful.
This is a critical component to everyone's daily lives.
Please for the love of Christmas fix it asap.
Or state that your product is incompatible with Redstone.
Any dates as to when the next software update will be ready?
This needs to be addressed. The Mouse lag is horrible. Please make this a priority.
I'm not so sure about the terrible lag caused by displaylink driver or windows 10 anniversary update.
if there is any video data update(even move web browser window within desktop) on external display then system clock goes down bellow half of maximum clock.
the redrawing of mouse point is also generate system lag problem.
this is not related to just a single display.
do anything on main display will not cause any problem.
I'm seeing a TERRIBLE lag after the W10 update, and even after installing the M2 driver update. It's past being an annoyance--it lags enough for my Surface Pro 3 to be unusable when plugged into my Plugable USB 3.0 station. DisplayLink, or Windows, please make this a priority!
I upgraded my ASUS UX303 to 1607 and I using DL 8.0M2 now.
Mouse and keyboard lags are definetly there.
Before the upgrade there were no noticable lags.
With M2 I'm still noticing lags. It depend on how and when I connect DL device to my computer. If I started the pc with connected Dell 3100 there will be a lot delay, with mouse and keyboard too.
If I connect the dock with my already started computer, the lags are minimalized to an acceptable level.
These lags are similar to the lags I noticed when my processor working hard, but ONLY with the dock. Without dock, everything working fine in every cpu percentage.
I'm pretty sure that something went wrong with this "new" displaylink driver and the aniversary update. :-(
I'm still having this issue, even with the M2 install. It is horrible and making work horrible. Pressing the Windows key causes a stutter, closing windows, moving the mouse for the first time after pausing with it. Once the mouse gets going it is fluid, for the most part. It is just driving me nuts. Please fix! Weird how before Microsoft and DisplayLink didn't work together as companies to make the driver and it worked fine. Now they've tried to integrate into one and its just lag heaven. Gotta love it.

It´s much better since the M2 Driver update. But occasionally the wudfhost.exe (and its subcomponent, one of the DisplayLink Drivers) start to consume 1 processor core and the lag is really horrible. This goes away after a reboot or, if I am patient enough, sometimes after an hour or so. Since there´s also a huge thread on the Display Link Forum (I only discovered after I had found this Feature Suggestion website), I´m following the progress there instead. Thanks for reading and replying to my post :-)

I think it's actually Windows, not Displaylink.
