Description (last modified by Dsen) (diff)

I have Virtualbox 4.1.6 r74713 and I use win 7 64 sp1 with high DPI font scale set at 150% as a host. In the VirtualBox Manager the list on the virtual machines isn't properly displayed it overlaps the name and the state:  http://i.imgur.com/FQR38.png

I've tried to disable the Display scaling on high DPI settings in the compatibility tab of VirtualBox application in Windows 7 but it's disabled:

I can confirm this, other than that the QT UI is fantastic, kudos to the dev team.

The error comes from the VB manager not being hihg DPI aware, so doen't render the size of the fonts properly

For some reason which I don't know it's now working with VB 4.1.8 r75467

"For some reason which I don't know it's now working with VB 4.1.8"

Not here, the problem persists.

That's why I wasn't sure what I did exactly to make it work ok. I really noticed it displaying fine after I took a snapshot of one of my VB machines, the first one I've ever done. I don't know if it's related but you could try.

I've been able to reproduce the error. Just go to Control Panel -> Display -> Set Custom Size DPI Use Windows XP Style DPI scaling If it's checked then there's no error in the display but if it's not checked the display has the font rendering error. This is independent of the dpi scaling you use.
