Better support HiDPI displays

I use Windows 2016 / Windows 10 VMs on a MacBook Pro (with ESC key :-) with Retina Display.

All Windows version run fine with HiDPI resolution. Only thing is that Fiddler4 shows its texts in a lower resolution, so all texts have the right size, but they are are shown with less dpi, so you can see the pixels.

Would be great to set the right flags for the windows resources to enable HiDPI support showing better texts without pixels.

    Have you tried the -dpiAware command line option?

    I only have started it from the program menu.
    But yes, -dpiAware helps a lot! Columns seem smaller so I have to expand them a little bit. But the font is crispy sharp!
    Do you plan to make it the default?

    We should but it's not really ready yet.

    This is really killing me. As a small improvement, can this also be set via registry instead of CLI flag? That way I don't have to modify the shortcut after every update.
