  • Your virusscanner might detect the QuanshengDock.dll as suspicious and quarantine this file. Then you must correct this manually in the management screen of your virus scanner
  • QuanshengDock needs .NET 6 runtime. It will be installed on initial use
  • If upgrading from a version before 0.27.3q the new version will likely have HUGE text on the LCD screen. This is because I had to change the way the "F Stretch" feature worked. If this happens open up your settings and change "F Stretch" to a value around 0.20

Initial screen
