"I think you will find that ""XP style DPI scaling"" is only relevant if you have the aero interface active.

I've just confirmed on my machine - if I disable aero, the option becomes unavailable and when I then reactivate aero this reactivates the option.

If the aero interface is deactive you will effectively be using XP style scaling anyway because you are using the XP style interface."
