Portable Apps Menu isn't DPI-aware

One of the machines I use PortableApps on has a very high resolution display. The display is set to be 126 DPI, which makes the fonts bigger and more readable.

When I run the PortableApps Menu on that machine, the text is large and readable, but the graphics are the same size as always. As a result, graphics only occupy the top left corner of the menu. The 'X' button to close the menu program appears to be somewhere in the centre of the menu, but clicking it does nothing. To close the menu I have to click somewhere near the bottom right corner, where the graphic for the 'X' button should be.

I'll upload a screen shot to a website just as soon as I get onto a machine where scp works...

You missed the note

There's a note right on the Suite download page that mentions this with a link to the beta release that fixes it.

Beta didn't fix it for me

Problem still exists for me even with the 1.0.1.0 patch file.

Display: 1280 x 1024, 32bit colour, 120DPI.

1.0.2

Read it again. 1.0.1 only fixes the pre-WinXP issues. 1.0.2 Betas fix the DPI issues.

Ahhh - I didn't realise that

Ahhh - I didn't realise that "A fix is being tested" was a link to another executable. All seems fine here now.
