I am having a strange problem with the dockable windows and multiple monitors and need a little help. I have a user control that has an imbedded Windows Media Player (WMP) in it, if the ToolWindow that holds the WMP user control is on the second monitor the WMP will not run but if it is moved back to the first monitor it will run. This happens if the ToolWindow is docked or not docked. If I remove the user control from the dockable windows and add it to a form it works without any problems.

Has anyone seen this before? Is it a coding problem in the way I implemented the WMP or is it a dockable window issue? Thank you in advance.

I really have no idea what would cause that sort of issue. Tool windows use the host container control's parent form as their owner. Could that have something to do with it?
