Unhappy Games Crash or Blank Flicker even when not plugged in

Just got the Targus Displaylink adapter and tried using latest 6.3 release and 7 beta.

Displaylink is working fine for standard Windows applications.

Games don't work at all. Even if I unplug the USB DisplayLink adapter. In one case, the game crashed. With a different game, all I see is a flickering black screen which allows me to see my desktop as it flickers between that and a black screen. All this is on the native display without the USB displaylink plugged in. (Same results when it IS plugged in as well)

I have to uninstall the DisplayLink Core Software to get games to work again on my native display.

Currently using with a Dell XPS 15z laptop with Intel Graphics + nVidia 525M adapter using Optimus.

All running latest released drivers.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hopefully v6.3 M1 resolves this issue when using DisplayLink with NVIDIA Optimus systems

Can you post the log files and let me know what the games are? Also

Are you running them in full screen mode, or Windowed mode?
What level of DirectX support do they require?
Do they only crash when you have an adapter connected, or just when DisplayLink software is installed?
If you make the DisplayLink screen primary, do you get the same issue?

I'm assuming you are on Win 7?

Thanks

Wim
