Full screen on secondary monitor milkdrop2

Hey guys I'm trying to figure out how to make milkdrop2 goto full screen on a secondary display.
I tried playing with the DualHead menu but when I try to goto full screen it appears on the primary display.

My graphics card is nVidia Quadro FX 880M.

Please let me know if anyone else can get this to work.
Thanks!

I have an ati card under vista, but I think it should work on any system:

Use your favourite text editor to open

user\AppData\Roaming\Winamp\Plugins\milk.ini

find the line that says

adapter_devicename_fullscreen=\\.\DISPLAY1

change it to

adapter_devicename_fullscreen=\\.\DISPLAY2

save and close. Now when you run MD full screen it should go to your secondary display. If you go fullscreen without the second display running it'll revert back to your primary monitor and your change will be overwritten back to

adapter_devicename_fullscreen=\\.\DISPLAY1

to get it working again just repeat the fix

I HAVE THE ANSWER! Well at least it works for me. Here is what I did:

Options>Visualization>Configure Plug In (To enter this screen you cannot have the Visualization tab open)

Common Settings Tab>
The changes you will make are in the Fullscreen Settings portion
Display Adapter> In the drop down menu select 2. Then check Use Fake fullscreen mode

Click the DualHead button (bottom right)
On this screen there are two drop down menus. BOTH should be "span both screens"

This worked for me and my setup. I hope this helps =)
