Hello Rick,
could it be that the program window is positioned outside the visible part
of the screen?
Try the following: The program saves the screen position in the aux. file
SatPos.SQF in the SatPC32 program folder. The file can be edited with
Notepad or another editor.. Line #1 contains the vertical and line #2 the
horizontal screen position (in pixels). Set both values to 0, save the file
and restart the program.  The program window will then be positioned in the
upper left corner if the bug was caused by that aux. file.
When you move the program window on the screen the last position will be
saved if you terminate the program with File | Quit.

73s, Erich, DK1TB

running Windows ME. It suddenly started to create problems. Now when I open
the application it takes control of my FT-847 through CAT port  but the main
map/control screen never opens, however, the application appears below in
the applications bar as though it were running. It also fails to call up the
FodTrack DDE client. Any suggestions or has anyone encountered similar
