8. Internet Explorer Setup
The WebBrowser control in .Net framework uses the IE installed on the PC, but by default it always simulates IE7. To fix this, you need to add a Windows registry value.
  • Start Regedit.exe
  • For 32-bit Windows, locate [(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE)\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION] or
  • For 64-bit Windows, locate [(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE)\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION]
  • Add a new "DWORD Value" and name it "DynasignPlayer.exe" to the above key. Change the "Value Data" depending on the version of IE installed on the player.
    • For IE8, "DynasignPlayer.exe" = dword 8888 (Hex: 22B8) or
    • For IE9, "DynasignPlayer.exe" = dword 9999 (Hex: 270F) or
    • For IE10, "DynasignPlayer.exe" = dword 10001 (Hex: 2711) or
    • For IE11, "DynasignPlayer.exe" = dword 11001 (Hex: 2AF9)
  • This value will force Webbrowser control to use the newer IE mode instead of simulating the old IE7. IE11 is required to run HTML5 content properly.
    To display webpage using TLS 1.2, add DWORD in registry as following:
  • For 32-bit operating system: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v2.0.50727] "SystemDefaultTlsVersions"=dword, value 1
  • For 64-bit operating system: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v2.0.50727] "SystemDefaultTlsVersions"=dword, value 1
  • If you have old Windows 7 OS, need to further add two DWORDs at below location [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.2\Client] "DisabledByDefault"=dword, value 0 "Enabled"=dword, value 1
  • You may not see 'TLS 1.2' under Protocols, need to add this new Key, then add 'Client' new key under 'TLS 1.2'. Finally add two DWORDs above in 'Client'

9. High DPI Monitor Setup
    When windows 10 detects certain high resolution monitor is connected, it will zoom in the desktop automatically and cause Dynasign player contents appear to be cut off. To correct this problem, please use one of the two methods listed below to override the high DPI scaling. To quit Dynasign player, presse CTRL+F1.
  • Method 1. Add a String value in Windows registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers. If you don't see \Layers, add this Key first, then add String Value 'c:\Dynasign\Dynasignplayer3\Dynasignplayer.exe', the Value data for the string is '~ HIGHDPIAWARE', please note there is a space after ~.
  • Method 2. Set Dynasignplayer.exe to override high DPI scaling directly.
    • Use file explorer to go to c:\dynasign\dynasignplayer3\
    • Locate the file named dynasignplayer.exe, right click on the file name -> Properties.
    • On the Properties window, click on Compatibility tab, look for a button called "Change high DPI settings",
    • Click on that and look for the check box for "override high DPI scaling behavior", check that box.
    • Click on OK, and OK
