Screen disappears

Postby raffer » Mon Oct 01, 2012 4:14 pm

Just downloaded the IF Demo and after running the installation as administrator, I get an Icon in the Taskbar
which I click on and see another window disappearing to the right - out of sight.
If I click on the icon again the window returns to the task bar but too fast for me to catch it.
How do I get the (presumably) opening splash screen to open on my Desktop
I am using Windows 7 x64

Many thanks

George

Please don't run as admin or change any compatability settings on the installer.

All that is needed is to double click the IF setup.exe file and it will restart as admin after checking itself for malware. The UAC prompt will ask you to continue as admin or cancel, please continue, after that the IF installer will appear.

Thanks Steve-I have discovered the problem-the opening screen was going to a second monitor, which , when switched on showed it and allowed me to move it to my primary monitor.

Hi George,
Thanks for that, I will see what can be done to ensure the main monitor is chosen, it usually is, not sure why not on your system. Had it been installed before?

Hi George,
I found an oversight that meant the program could popup on the other monitor, so thanks very much for spotting it. Hopefully now fixed in later versions.
