I use SFFS and it's incompatible with NView. So is winamp it seems (I can't believe a company like nVidia can do a product with this many incompatibilities and get away with it!).

The only think I need NView for is to get a shortcut to flip the screen portrait/landscape.

That should be simple to get with some other tool (I hope!).
Note: there's no tray icon that I can use with some ahk magic.

Since most of you will have NVidia cards, you may have developed a solution.

Thanks

You don't have 'NVRotate'?
In properties?
I have a geforce mx 4000.

Check Nvidia's site for some forceware for your card.

Entech makes a little freeware app called iRotate.  That's what I use.

Yeah, I was really happy to find that after quite a bit of hunting around when Nvidia removed the hotkey function from their drivers.  It's even multi-monitor aware.
