Why does my PC error "Least resolution is 1024 * 768" when running AlienVision?
Windows 10 Font scaling can cause problems with the scaling on AlienVision. AlienVision when running properly will populate the whole screen of the PC.

So to sort this out you will need to adjust the DPI Scaling behaviour for AlienVision.
Follow the steps below:

> Right click "AlienVision" on the Desktop.
> Click "Properties"
> Click "Compatibility"
> Select "Change High DPI Settings"
> Tick High DPI Scaling override
>Click OK, Apply and OK

Try to run AlienVision again.
