[IDV #MIY-325360]: Error When Attempring To Move Display Window

Hi Jacob-

The IDV doesn't support dual monitors very well.  You need to keep the 
Dashboard on the initial monitor that it was started on.  You should be able to 
move the display to a new monitor once it's created.

For the error below, what were you doing when this occurred?  Were you making a 
new display or trying to save an image?
