I suggest you ...

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.

    @oleg The initial idea was different request linked with installation.
    I understand that third party has a nice article spitting on other solutions rather than addressing their shortcomings, but I'd rather we deal with compelling facts rather than FUD. The logs with crash dumps will give insight on why our driver is terminated when you install that third party driver.
    Here is the article on how to collect them:

    Unlike what is stated by reset77, the DisplayLink driver on your Windows 10 is using standard OS features... We even co-engineered this with Microsoft: http://www.displaylink.com/newsroom/press-releases/displaylink-partners-bring-usb-graphics-support-in-latest-microsoft-windows-10-a-129

    @Alban: this continues to be a problem for me. After installing Duet, DisplayLink stops working. I get 3 errors in the event viewer:

    10110: A problem has occurred with one or more user-mode drivers and the hosting process has been terminated. This may temporarily interrupt your ability to access the devices.

    10111: The device MIMO (location Port_#0002.Hub_#0006) is offline due to a user-mode driver crash. Windows will attempt to restart the device 1 more times. Please contact the device manufacturer for more information about this problem.

    10112: The device MIMO (location Port_#0002.Hub_#0006) is offline due to a user-mode device crash. Windows will no longer attempt to restart this device because the maximum restart limit has been reached.

    If i uninstall Duet, it works fine again. The problem obviously could be on their end but it doesn't seem that way.

    I'm using the latest DisplayLink drivers on Windows 10 Enterprise v 1703 (build 15063.632).

    To be able to use a DisplayLink adapter as a screen dedicated to a virtual machine under KVM / linux

    This is a big problem to a lot of people, the problem is DisplayLink uses its own driver instead of using the windows WDDM 2.0 driver, this make a lot of applications incompatible with DisplayLink products
