Visual Studio .NET garbles dialog size in resource view - NVidia Desktop Management problem

P: n/a
Just a post for anyone else that is having this problem (as I've now
discovered the solution).

The problem is where when looking in the dialog resource view of an
MFC project in Visual Studio .NET (2003 in my case) the dialog sizing
gets garbled and it chops off the edges of the dialog somehow and
renders the user unable to edit the dialog properly without screwing
the sizing up.

Well after months of having this problem I finally discovered that the
problem was happening because I was using the Desktop Management
feature of nView in the Nvidia drivers of my Nvidia card. Turning the
Desktop Management off fixed this problem. Typical Nvidia driver
quality.

In addition this was also causing me a problem where SQL Server Query
Analyzer would hang after doing virtually anything. Again, turning off
DM fixed this.

This was on Windows 2000 Pro, don't know whether this is a problem on
XP or not.
