This is because, you are opening the BBSA console on the Secondary Monitor. In Display > Screen resolution (right click mouse on Desktop and select Screen resolution), it shows the Primary and Secondary.
Most of the Pop ups usually open on Primary Screen. So, either you can switch your secondary to Primary(Drag to other side), or open the BBSA Console on Primary only.
It shouldn’t matter – the gui should be able to figure out what monitor it’s on and send the popups there . imo this is a defect.
I have seen this in not only BMC Tools (BBSA/BAO), but in MIcrosoft tools as well (IE/LYNC etc).
Its the Graphics card which decides and try to send everything to Default (Monitor 1) every time.
Also, windows does saves the Programs windows, but not the Pop up windows. They can go on the Last placement or Default monitor 1.
Really? i’ve rarely had problems w/ non-java apps w/ multiple monitors on windows. some Linux apps – even non-java ones seem to have similar issues though.
I see it the same way,
the BSA console is the only app that behaves so weirdly in our environment.
We had multiple tickets open for this and every time BMC Support tells us it is due to wrong graphic card drivers etc etc.
I use Eclipse IDE for all my Jython development etc. and it works flawless with our dual-screen setup.
I guess i'll push my ticket again.
