When this error appears, it indicates that there is an instance of TrackIR running in the background.

By default, TrackIR gets minimized into the system tray to save processing resources when connecting to a client game and the TrackIR software might be dwelling in the system tray after getting minimized. Please check the system tray is located next to the notification center on the taskbar. To open, you must click on the arrow to show hidden icons. Right-click on the TrackIR icon in the taskbar tray and select "Minimize/Maximize to tray."

If you wish to change this behavior, you can configure the setting in TrackIR software. On the top-right corner, there is a wrench symbol which you can click to open TrackIR Application Options. Under here, you can uncheck "Minimize To System Tray," "Automatically Minimize On TrackIR Enhanced Title Launch," and "Run Minimized" as needed.
