Different Splashscreens w/o Frame

There is something we recognized with the Splashscreen from Solid Edge.

 

Some of the splashscreens have a frame some don't. See Picture

 

 

We have the feeling that the PCs, where we don't see the frame, we have an issue about graphic performance!

 

Maybe there is someone out there with an explanation for this?

Assuming laptops per the "m" at the end of your Quadro models?

 

If so, I'm guessing it has something to do with the age of the laptop and if it is running embedded graphics with the NVIDIA discreet graphics.  The older model probably does not have the embedded graphics (Intel HD something) and the newer model does (this can be seen in Windows Device Manager under Display Adapters).  If the laptop has both graphic adapters (embedded and discreet) NVIDIA's driver can switch between the adapters to show all 2D apps on the screen using the embedded adapter to save energy while using the discreet Quadro adapter to display 3D graphic apps (like SE).  Since the splashscreen does not have a window frame by default, I'm guessing the NVIDIA driver is providing one to display it using the Qaudro card since it runs SE on the NVIDIA adapter..

You get the frame when you are running an Windows Aero theme.

Jason got it!  Went back and changed my desktop to using Aero and now it has the frame.

Yes this was the differents!

 

Thank you Jason.

 

I have something in my mind about Aero and graphic performance or was it only for the transparent option for the Edge Bar?
