VSM Display Setup and Customization

This page walks you through the steps of setting up different displays to work with VSM. These instructions work the same for regular users and demo users.

The main reason for customizing your display for VSM is:

  1. Compress screens for reports
  2. Allow same VSM data to be run on different computers without reassigning the display type.

There is also a list below of display cards that support the compressed screen mode in VSM.

The "Display Type" section under OFFICE MENU in the VSM User Manual describes how to assign your display type. The manual is available online to VSM users by going to the OPERATIONS MENU and pressing H for Help. The info on this web page is a supplement to the user manual.

The manual lists command line options like "paravga" and "trident" that may be used to override the display adapter assignment. This is helpful if you run VSM on computers with different display types. Once you figure which command line option works for you, it can be saved in your computer's customized vo.bat file which you setup here.
