Multiple Pinpoint graphics on multiple display monitors from one Cyberstation

Issue

At times there is a need to display Pinpoint graphics on multiple displays from one Cyberstation

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

  • Continuum
  • Windows XP
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 2003
  • Windows 2008

Cause

There is a need to display multiple graphics, but opening multiple graphic panels opens them in the same Pinpoint window

Resolution

  1. Open up one pinpoint graphic normally through Cyberstation
  2. Start>Programs>Continuum>Pinpoint  then File>Open and select the graphic (launches another session of pinpoint.exe)
  3. Drag and drop the second pinpoint session to your second display
  4. Repeat

Caution: Pinpoint.exe can be resource intensive, so opening multiple sessions will increase the number of resources consumed at least by the number of sessions that are open. This method does not get tested in QA.
