New windows cannot be created

Postby firemag » 14 Dec 2017

I got the following error when trying to open another workspace:

I have 56 windows spread across several tabs in one desktop. This does not seem excessive, especially for a 64-bit program. Before I try to reorganize the charts across multiple desktops (which I would rather not do), is there some other issue at play that is a problem? Or is this really a limitation of MC?

This is a Micorsoft limitation.

Please google "GDI" for more information.


You can run multiple instances of MC to overcome this limitation.

Thanks, TJ. Interesting... and I also found other posts in the forum concerning this issue. I did a search and came up empty before posting, so must have had a typo... lots of information about this issue.

Wouldn't I need additional licenses to run multiple instances of MC?

Otherwise I can look into setting up multiple desktops.

Thanks, again.

MC license allows you to run multiple instances on the SAME computer.
