Thanks for reporting this issue.

This is Windows doing "dpi virtualization" (it reports 96 dpi to the 
app, and then upscales what it draws to the actual dpi)

Since we (now) use standard UI elements for everything in setup, it 
should 'just' be a case of marking setup as being able to handle being 
told the real dpi.

I built an updated setup with that change:

Perhaps you could try that and see if it improves things for you?
