Installer UI is wrong in Linux HDPI screens

Hi there,

Some customers from our company complained because they get very poor installer UI in Linux HDPI screens, which I have confirmed.

The contents of the window are correctly sized, but the window itself is half-sized so many options don't show up.

I've found a workaround that is setting to 1 the prop "allowWindowResize", so now I can resize manually at least.

But I think it would be much better if installer UI resizes automatically in this cases, because User might not know where the list of options ends. (For example 3 checkboxes is problematic, last option is hidden)

There's a way to do that right now?

In case not, could you add that option?

Also, I would like to confirm if this property is enabled by default?: "enableHDPISupport"

Or should I set that manually in every installer? 

Thanks in advance for any help,

Sebastian

Also,

FYI, I think there's a bug in macOS when setting 

<allowWindowResize>1</allowWindowResize>

The installer UI fills the entire screen, unlike Windows and Linux. 

So I'm able to set to 1 only in Windows and Linux so far.

Thanks for any help with the initial questions,

Sebastian
