I have a desktop with Campaign Series running Windows 10 and it works great. My laptop, also running the same version of Windows 10, has an issue whereby the Unit Info bar (toggled on using shortcut key 'U') does not update information about a hex with one left-click. For example, see the screenshot attached which shows a selected Forest hex, but the info being displayed is for an (previously selected) Open hex. Any ideas how to get the Unit info bar to refresh immediately when a hex is selected?

There is some inconsistency with this issue. I can select a hex and the info bar will not update, but if I rotate the map, then it will update sometimes and not other. I can usually get the info bar to display hex info correctly if I triple-click the hex (though sometimes it will update with double click--usually won't with a single click).

I have read through these forums and tried compatibility modes, overriding DPI, running as an admin, reinstalling as an admin, installing Microsoft C++ Redist 2008, changing my computer resolution to something lower, turned up all performance options on my graphics card. Would like to be able to play this on my laptop too, so would appreciate any ideas or help. Once I play enough I may remember the stats for a hex type, but since I am new to the game it is helpful to have that right bar on the side.

Thanks!

I have a laptop here with issues like that. The game is irremediably broken on that system. Most probably buggy mouse drivers. Just one of those things. There is no fix for it AFAIK.
