Windows Aero Using UGS-125 USB to VGA

Do you have to have Windows Aero enabled in order to use the Plugable UGA-125 USB to VGA/DVI/HDMI Adapter for Multiple Monitors up to 1280×1024 device. I was thinking about purchasing this but needed info first. I will be using Windows 7 Enterprise and this will be for a third monitor. My other two are running on an ati video card.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for posting your question here! Yes, Windows Aero needs to be enabled for all our USB Graphics Adapters including the Plugable UGA-125 to work without issues.

If Aero is disabled, the OS automatically disables the Desktop Window Manager which the Displaylink drivers depend on to render graphics.

Hope the above information helps! If you need any additional information, please feel free to post back here or shoot us an email at We are here to help!
