As the title suggests, I want to run nView desktop manager on Windows 7 x64. nView used to come bundled with the drivers back in the Windows XP days, but I can no longer find it.

Alternatively I would be happy if anyone knows of another 3rd party desktop manager. (preferrably one which allows me to span a 3840x1200 image across the screens)

I am using a GeForce GTX 460 and dual 1920x1200 monitors.

nView is only for Quadro video cards, the GTX460 is a GeForce and not supported with nView since the Vista update. You'll want to check for VirtuaWin or another application for the best experience with your current card.

Installing Quadro driver with few lines added for corresponding device ID in nv_dispwi.inf, will be able to run nview. With 560 GTX I'm able to do this.
