Post Installation to Change Screen Resolution on the K2000

by: Corey A. Serrins

This script is meant to allow the user to configure the resolution of a computer screen after deployment of an operating system. Often the video driver is not loaded until the postinstallation task. By setting this post install to run after driver installs, you can set the resolution however you like.

This script should be run after the video driver is installed, as that process often changes the resolution.
There are 2 ways this script can be run.
1. Double click the application and choose a predefined x and y coordinate from the drop down menu, then click on "Set Resolution"
(If using as a postinstallation task on the K2000, just enter "rez_change.exe". The postinstalltion
task will stop until this data is inputed).
2. Via commandline options where you will not be prompted for the resolution, unless you want to be.
From the commandline (or on the k2000 enter these commands in the commandline field):

/x: Use this switch to set the horizontal dimension of the screen
/y: Use this switch to set the vertical dimension of the screen
/manual:Use this switch to manually enter the dimensions of the screen in a dailog box
a. rez_change.exe /x:1024 /y:768
(Sets resolution to 1024x768).
b. rez_change.exe /manual
user will be prompted to enter the dimentions of the x and y coordinates, then click on "Set Resolution"
The postinstalltion task will stop until this data is inputed).
