Just ran into a problem with my multiple monitor system: with both monitors active then CC:COI comes up with the message "Windows cannot create any more DCs" (where I assume DC = Device Context) and exits on startup.

Anyway, very easy to fix by just temporarily disabling the second monitor, but I thought I should post the problem and solution incase anybody else has a dual monitor system and gets the same message.

Juk :)

Please ignore this! It turns out that it's not the multiple monitors thats the root cause of the problem; it's because I'm running some anti-spyware sofware called "ProcessGuard". As soon as I turned off ProcessGuard then everything worked fine (and it's working fine in 1600x1200 = WOW!!!!).

Juk :)

Can you take a photo of a dual screen set up?

Close combat doesn't span over both screens if that's what you're thinking? :)

It just displays on th main monitor and the 2nd monitor stays as it is.

Thank you for the feedback jukofyork.  Looks like you are our twin monitor dude now

We haven't found an upper limit for the display yet.  Several reports of 1600x1200 running ok.  Anyone successfully run it higher than that?
