Windows 7: Process runs, but app window does not display

27 Oct 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional 32bit

Hi Brice,

Thanks very much for your response. I think you are on to something regarding the app being launched from another process. In my case, the original chain of events is this:

1. user connects remotely to the computer in question
2. user runs app
3. app window does not display

Another contributing factor might be this: The app contains logic to position itself on the same screen location position as when it was when last closed. The computer it resides on has a dual monitor configuration. However, when remoting in, the user can only see one of these monitors at a time. Perhaps when he started the app, it positioned itself on the monitor his remote session could not see, thus leading to the problem?

I'll investigate. But thanks again for your help, it has been very useful!
