single Card, dual Monitor, Visualization Fullscreen

Sending a Visualization from secondary Monitor into Fullscreen moves the Visualizationwindow to primary Monitor, depending on Plugin it plays successfull or not (Milkdrop fails, AVS succeeds, Tinyfullscreen produces Garbage over both of my Monitors). Fullscreening streamed Videos works flawless, tho.

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP3
installed Plugin: Null - clean vanilla Install
Graphics-Adapter: nVidia Geforce 8500 GT @ Forceware 178.24
Display#1: 17" @ 1280x1024, (DVI) BenQ FP71V+
Display#2: 15" @ 1024x768, (Analog) Medion MD9383AA

Additionaly succeeded in crashing Winamp into Desktop three or four Times by repeatedly clicking the "Fullscreen"-Button in the Visualizationtab of the Combined Display.

Winamp Facts: v5.541 x86, Aug 3 2008, Bento Skin (normal sized)

Adendum: If I fullscreen a Video on the secondary Monitor, it maximazes there. That's what I expected from Visualizations as well.

Note: Winamp usualy lays itself over the Taskbar, but while Fullscreen on the secondary Monitor you can activate Winamp's Window through the Taskbar, but the Userinterface pops in front of the Video.

I HAVE THE ANSWER! Well at least it works for me running a secondary monitor. Here is what I did:

Options>Visualization>Configure Plug In (To enter this screen you cannot have the Visualization tab open)

Common Settings Tab>
The changes you will make are in the Fullscreen Settings portion
Display Adapter> In the drop down menu select 2. Then check Use Fake fullscreen mode

Click the DualHead button (bottom right)
On this screen there are two drop down menus. BOTH should be "span both screens"

This worked for me and my setup. I hope this helps =)
