Track IR 5 Program "Not Responding"

Post by CollinFlys »

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the program multiple times. At first, it worked perfectly. After quitting X-Plane and Track IR, it stopped working. Every time I go to open the program, it will go to my second monitor under the taskbar. After disabling the taskbar, I discovered that it was a blank white screen with "not responding" in the top left corner. I also cannot maximize the window (10-11% usage on my CPU). Thanks.

Just as an update:

We were able to resolve this issue in a remote session. Here is what we did:

1. Remove TrackIR from add/remove programs
2. Remove NaturalPoint Drivers from add/remove programs.
3. Delete NaturalPoint folder from: C:\Users\[Your.User.Name]\AppData\Roaming\NaturalPoint\
-This will delete any saved profiles. You will want to save them before deleting [Step 5].
C:\Users\[Your.User.Name]\AppData\Roaming\NaturalPoint\TrackIR 5\Profiles
4. Open regedit.exe as an administrator
5. Search for and delete files labeled as "NaturalPoint"
6. Search for and delete files labeled as "TrackIR"
7. Right-click on the installer and 'Run as administrator'
-You only have to do this the first time
All the Best,

Ok, I did this two times now, and after the recent windows update TrackIR freezes again.

Just a heads up, the solution is good, but seems not to solve the root cause issue.

It appears that the issue depends on where you last closed your TrackIR application window. If you have a second monitor and you close the app with it moved over there, then it will not allow the app to open there the next time. To fix this I would need to open the file:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\NaturalPoint\TrackIR 5\Settings.xml

and change the following values:


This would bring the window back to the main monitor when the app is started, preventing the crash.
