Multiple desktops on multiple displays

  1. ...I was going to type up what I want to do, but I think that a post from this July sums it up pretty well. Hopefully someone will reply to it this time:

    "I am using the 15" TFT as the primary display, and the 21" TV for games...this is working fine as long as I switch exclusively to the relevent display and work from there...e.g switch to TV then launch a game...

    However I'd like to be able to configure the setup so that the main display remains on the 15" and I can launch games from here and they then go to the 21" TV, while the main windows desktop remains on the TFT...and if i'm being greedy, it would be good if i could somehow lock the controls to each display, so that I could keep a game on display2, while using display 1...e.g a game is playing and doesnt minimise the moment I open a window on desktop1...at the moment I have been unable to achieve this, the majority of software works fine, I just drag teh dialog box and expand it on the display I want...

    But the likes of Vice City REFUSES to maximise to the second desktop...I'm using Hyrdravision and there is no individual application setting configurable for the likes of Vice City...does anyone know of any generic multiple display software which may be better than Hydra?"

    I didn't post that the first time, but it is pretty much exactly the same thing I need to do now. Does anyone know if it's possible?
