Using 2 monitors with cdg-plug in

I have been trying to figure out a way to us 2 monitors with the cdg plugin and finally figured it out.

I'm using Windows, so I don't know how to do it for other systems, but all you have to do is go into Windows explorer. Go into what ever folder you have Winamp installed in. From there go into the Plugins folder.

There are 2 files gen_cdg.ini and gen_cdg.dll
Make copies of those 2 files in the folder.
Close explorer.
Open Winamp
press the Crtl and P keys to open preferences
Go to Plugins - General purpose
You will find that there are 2 instances of the plugin
Configure one of them so it's full screen monitor is display 2 set
the other to us display 1.
save the options and close preferences
close Winamp and reopen it.
play an MP3+g file
There will be 2 karaoke displays on you screen, they both may not be visible
You drag the top on off of the bottom one if this is the case.
Double clip on one of them to go full screen on the second monitor
If display 1 goes full screen double click on it to go off full screen
then double click on the other 1 and it will go to screen 2
When you are only using 1 screen disable the 1 in preferences that uses
display 2

This may have already been posted somewhere but I couldn't find it.
Keep a smile on your lips and a song in your heart.
