What happens when you try to save a profile, any errors from within the software?

If you load the 4.1.038 software, and try a gaming application, are you getting slow movement?

So as soon as you boot the OS, it responds with a software already running error?

Tried to run the latest beta version of Track IR software with my Track IR 3 Pro. The software detected the hardware after I had updated the drivers as per this forum. However, even though it did seem to turn on, it did not detect my Track IR cap. I have vector clip though rarely use it, most of my games are not 6 dof (eg, Il2 1946). My OS is Win 7 home 64 bit.

A: No errors, just does'nt save; it show's in the pull down list the default settings. i.e. smooth,

If you load the 4.1.038 software, and try a gaming application, are you getting slow movement?
A: No, works fine.

So as soon as you boot the OS, it responds with a software already running error?
A: yes.

Please accept this defect report. Details follow.

TrackIR software 5.1 beta 3

When using dual Radeon graphics devices, Tracker IR 5 application crashes when initially opened. Tracker IR5 works fine when using only one graphics device (Radeon X1300/X1550)

TrackerIR 5
11/16/2009
Driver Version 2.50.0.0

Radeon X1300/X1550 Series PCI, 1920 by 1080 pixels
PCI Slot 2 (PCI bus 2, device 0, function 0)
Driver Version 8.591.0.0
Driver date 2/25/2009

ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 (on motherboard) 1280 by 1024 pixels
PCI bus 1, device 5, function 0
Driver Version 8.351.0.0
Driver Date 3/2/2007
File Version 6.14.10.0413

Windows XP Home Edition SP3
Lenovo
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual
Core Processor 4400+

This hardware is a little old, but works fine for Condor glider flight sim. Would like to run dual monitors so that I can display large flight instruments on second 1280 X 1024 monitor.

Please visit our software download section to get

The TrackIR5 version you are using is : 5.1.200

I re-downloaded beta 3 and installed twice but it still says that I have 5.1.200 version installed

That appears to be a bug. 5.1.200 is the most current version, so if it's installed, you are up to date. Just ignore the message otherwise for now, and we'll look into it. Sorry for the confusion!

Dear VT,

Are there any driver updates available for the video cards you are currently running?

Do you see this issue, when using the 4.1.038 software?

Do you see the issue, if you enable the nogl option within the settings.xml file

Just upgraded from 5.0 to 5.1 b3, and love it. Under XP64, I no longer have the issue of exiting trackir, but the camera does not shut down. Now it all shuts down instantly. Tracking seems to be improved as well. Keep up the good work! (Using Trackir 5)
