Hey guys,

C# program shows up in Processes but the GUI doesn't show on the desktop.  This doesn't happen often but enough to be troublesome.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jerry

Maybe it's there, but it's being drawn off-screen. Have you tried setting an explicit start position for your form? To confirm in Windows 7 you can use the keyboard shortcuts Win-Left/Right to have the form docked to the left or right side, respectively, of the screen. If the form shows up docked, then you know it's being drawn off-screen.

kaufmed!!!  Thanks for the post!!

Unfortunately that didn't work.  :(  It show POSiTrackC*32 in the Processes tab.  If I delete it and double click the start up icon, it comes back in the Processes tab but not on the desktop.  I tried your suggestions and it worked with other programs but not mine.

Thanks,

Jerry
