The Z axis noise is not addressed in the beta 3 release, but we hope to have that resolved in an upcoming release. Its near the top of our priorities.

The software is launched now at startup, but the general option boxes regarding launching the program at start and auto minimizing to the tray are cleared each time.

Using TrackIR5 with Beta 3 on WinXP_x64.

Issue: Auto start broke - With the 'Run on System Startup' and 'Run Minimized' options check, beta 3 fails to load on startup. Once I start it manually from the desktop Icon, it starts fine and goes directly to a minimized icon in the systray.

Issue: Minimize Button - The minimize window button (top right corner of the beta 3 screen) ignores the setting 'Run Minimized'. When this is checked, minimizing the window manually from the icon in the top right corner of the screen should minimize the window to the systray. It currently only minimizes to the taskbar icon.
V/r,

5/13 note... Running 32 bit Vista with a Nvidia 8800 Ultra using 180.48 drivers, the symptom above appeared.

I upgraded to 185.85 drivers and the problem is cleared. The check boxes remain checked and the software loads on start-up.

Driver update kills camera?
Well, everything was fine until I updated my 8800GTX driver, now no response at all from camera and status LEDs off too.
Tried roll-back to previous driver with no change. Uninstall, removed file fom folder etc, reinstall - still NOTHING!!!
Original TIR4 still works OK with new driver.
Reg checker does show an invalid path for a TIR5 entry though.

Have you moved USB ports, for the IR5?

So the IR5 software loads normally?
