TrackIR v5 rearranges desktop icons

Post by adamg60804 » Tue Oct 18, 2011 4:27 pm

Hello all,

Just wondering if anyone's desktop icons gets "auto arranged" when you open TrackIR? I never use auto arrange since, like most of us, I like to manually arrange icons on my desktop. It's an issue and would like to know if there is a solution. My auto arrange is always turned off. Thanks.

Hmm, I can't say I've ever heard of this happening.

Does the screen flash black when running for a split second? Does resolution change at all?

Do the icons return to their normal spot when the software is closed?

Hey Mike, thanks for the fast response!

The screen doesn't flask black at all. Resolution doesn't change. Desktop icons do not return to thier set locations. They stay pushed to the left hand side of desktop. This never happened before and only happens after using TrackIR. Wish I knew why. Hope this helps. Thanks

Do you have any modifications to TrackIR in Catalyst that effect specifically TrackIR or OpenGL?

After many trials, I'm sure the issue is not TrackIR, it is Falcon BMS. Sorry for the mix up. When closing Falcon BMS it happens; and I don't even have TrackIR open and not running at all. Thanks for ur time.
