    I am having a couple different issues with iGuidance:

    - The Screen does not embed right - the top bar of the iGuidance program is always shown regardless of the changes I make in the setup for the screen in MI settings. It seems that I can shrink the window or expand it, but the screen never moves up or down to be hidden behind the top grapic in MI.

    - Also, sometimes I get the Iguidance program screens when I select the GPS Menu button through MI, it is not consistent, but sometimes it hoses and locks up my system and I have to get to task manager to close everything out and start over.


    I don't have Zone Alarm installed.

    Running XP Pro SP2, PIII-700, 512MB Ram, Nvidia Riva TNT2 64, Direct X 9

    Any suggestions appreciated! Maybe an ID10T error, who knows.....
    Great Front End and look forward to using it in the car once I get this thing built!

    Thanks again,

    Ed

    It is very possible that it is another program that is running in the background. To embed and resize iGuidance it has to find the window class of the program. Several classes are #32770 which is a commonly used window class and can be present in many different programs. So the program could be getting conflicts with other programs. My suggestion is to close any other programs that my be running to avoid this conflict and it will also enable your machine to run better. I find that your lockups is the program missing the right sequence of events because of system resource issues. The close/cancel buttons will always take you back to the main menu, or if you hit the exit button on the main menu will bring you back out without using task manager.

    Hey, I just downloaded MI and have iG 2.1.3, when I hit GPS it loads iG fine but the windows taskbar (is that what its called? the bar at the bottom of windows with Start on it) comes up and stays there until I hit HOME or some other option in MI. Is this the same problem this guy is having?

    Nope, this is a different little issue. Its a really easy thing to fix. Go into the Settings and select the option to Hide Windows Components, this will get rid of the start bar completely.
