I recently upgraded my old desktop to a new workstation, and was recommend that I get the FirePro W7000 graphics card.
Below is my current system info:
FirePro W7000 (FireGL V)
Catalyst version 2012.1120.2318.41833
Windows 7 64 bit, version 6.1.7601 service pack 1 build 7601
I am running a 2D CAD program from AutoDeck called AutoSketch version 10. I have upgraded to AutoCAD LT 2013, but my existing jobs need to be finished using AutoSketch 10. I am also using a dual monitor set-up. When using AutoSketch in my old dual monitor set up, ALL child windows would open up on the same monitor that I was working on. With this new system, the child windows usually open up on the other monitor, which is set as the primary monitor. This sucks big time, and is a waste of my time and energy!
Another issue is, the dialog boxes that do open up on the larger monitor that I am doing my drawings on, open up maximized, rather than the smaller size that I prefer.
I can play around with the HydraVision settings at get the "child" windows to work how I want, and that is fine for a day. However when I come back on the following day, or if I need to reboot my system, all settings will change. If I try to get them back to how I had them working before the restart, I can't get them to work again.
I am really frustrated with this whole CCC program, and I am ready to send it back, get my money back, and buy an Nvidia card!
Here is the balance of my system info:

I am using an HP L1908wm as my primary monitor and is connected with a display port to DVI cable. My seconday monitor is a HANNSPREE HF289H (where I do my drawing in CAD) which is connected with a display port to HDMI cable.
This whole issue is really getting me upset with AMD. Can anyone help me in trying to get my child windows to stay on the application display, and keep them from resizing to the max size? I have played around with the dialog control in the Hydravision Desktop Manager without any success.
