For what its worth I've attached the support files, which I managed to complete between the endless logging in and out.
Your problem looked similar to others on this thread, which has been fixed in 7.1. It has been hard to reproduce internally, which is why we thought it was related to other bug fixes in 7.1.

However your logs clearly show that it is still there on your system, and we have reproduced something similar (although it happens a lot less often so looks timing related).

Our next release is at the end of January, so hopefully we will have a fix in this release as its frustrating that this is still happening.

Default Display Link BVU 196 Windows 8 Thinkpad Nvidia Problem Now is Fixed

I had a problem with my Display Link BVU 196 with Windows 8 on a Thinkpad T420 with an NVidia display adapter where, after receiving a Windows Update, the DisplayLink was unusable because all three displays flashed. I fixed it with the following steps:

1. Installed latest BIOS from Lenovo.

2. Installed ThinkVantage System Update 5.01 for Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit), 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), now available from Lenovo.

2. Uninstalled the DisplayLink software (from Windows-X > Programs and Features).

3. Plugged in the DisplayLink and let the system reinstall its software.

So after 3 months, I can use three displays again.

Now my Win 8 Metro "Camera" app says this app cannot be used in this version of windows.
The camera worked before the 7.1 update.

Please HELP.

There are 2 problems here. The problems with video apps is covered in this thread.

The problem with some Metro apps launching with a blue screen is something different and we're investigating this. What GPU and system spec are you using as we believe it could be specific to some GPUs.

You are running out of time and I'm so running out of patience. You promised a new driver by the end of January. January is rapidly running out and there is still no working driver in sight. What's happening DisplayLink?

Tried new driver 7.1M1. Cleaned out the old install, restarted, installed new driver, plugged in the graphics, drivers configured and the system was restarted. Upon restart the system logd on and logs off several times and ending with all three monitors turned on but with black screens except for the mousecursor (????) which can travel on all three monitors.

This is the EXACTLY same behavior as earlier. Come on DisplayLink, get into the fight, will you. It's now more than 3 months since Windows 8 where released and you still haven't delivered a working solution for my hardware.
This is quite honestly intolerable!
