eBeam is loaded but not appear on screen

By derek369 ·
I have a program called eBeam which is used for communicating with a electronic white board. When I run the eBeam program it is loaded into memory as I can see it on the process list of task manager. But the program interface simply does not appear on user interface.

Any quick fix for that kind of problem.

Easy answer is to go into the Folder where you installed the program and make a copy of the EXE or program file and then drag it onto the desktop for easy launching. To do this right click on the correct application and chose Create Shortcut.

If you installed this program properly it should have created an Icon on the Desktop. If you chose not to use that option you will then need to go into the Start Menu and select the program from the listed applications. You can also create a second copy from here and drag it onto the desktop as well.

so you are saying, you double-click the program and nothing happens except you can see it in Task Manager? that is classic sign of program incompatiblity imho. is this xp sp2? i wonder if ebeam has an update for xp sp2...
see if it will run in safe mode.

i've just been to the ebeam website and see that there are patches and updates to correct xp sp2 issues. you'll have to go and see for yourself as you've left out too many particulars (such as exact e-beam version and interface) for me to suggest anything the patches work.

eBeam can be a tricky toy to play with. I've never seen it on the user interface, but try activating it and check to see that it's recognizing the white board. If the white board is powered by a source that is too low, it just doesn't get recognized and never connects. click on the eBeam icon in the tray, and verify first that there's a connection. Only after that connection is made will the unit be recognized.
