A few users have reported strange painting issues running Readerware under Windows. Maybe the window is not painting completely or artifacts appear when moving the mouse over the window.

These typically indicate a problem with your video driver. Java applications like Readerware do render windows and controls differently from other applications and this can reveal video driver problems not seen before. You can check for an updated video driver, this will often resolve these issues.

Another option is turn off graphics acceleration in Readerware. This is done at install time. Run the installer and look for the Install Options screen. Select the Disable graphics acceleration option and continue with the install. You can download the latest version of Readerware from here.
