Why are buttons and texts not properly displayed in MIKE+ in version 2021?

Depending on the resolution of your monitor, you may experience that some editors in MIKE+ are not displayed correctly, with e.g. some buttons and texts partly or fully hidden behind other items.

This issue is related to DPI settings, and can be avoided by following the procedure below.

#01 - Change high DPI settings
First go to the installation folder (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\DHI\MIKE+\2021\bin\x64, unless MIKE+ has been installed in a custom folder), and find the file DHI.MIKEPlus.Shell.exe. Right-click on this file and select ‘Properties’.

A new window will show up - go to the ‘Compatibility’ tab and press the ‘Change high DPI settings’ button

#02 - ‘Override high DPI scaling behavior’
In the next window, tick the option ‘Override high DPI scaling behavior’ and select the option ‘System (enhanced)’ in the list.

Press OK, and the display problem in MIKE+ will be fixed.


Note: For MIKE+ 2022, the compatibility feature is already enabled as default - see example in Fig. 3.
