Virtual Control Panel (resolved)

Post by 02beboeingblue » Mon Nov 27, 2017 3:07 am

CNC Keith,

I just finished putting together my acorn and downloading the software and the Virtual Control Panel did not load! Very frustrating. Everything else is ready, but we can't do anything without the control panel. Also, the touch screen does not work when the software is opened.

How do I get that control panel to open with the software?

You are using a 16:9 monitor, yes? DAMHIK! :oops:

Virtual control Panel

This morning, I uninstalled and reinstalled the acorn software.

Upon opening the software, the VCP icon opened as well in the taskbar.

Although the VCP is running, it can't be seen.

How do I shrink to fit the software AND the VCP on the monitor?

What resolution are you running on your computer? Is this a 4:3 or 16:9 (widescreen) monitor?

Thank you to CNC Keith and Centroid Liviu.

We swapped out a monitor and it turns out the ELO Touchscreen we were using couldn't handle the software.

We turned on the swap and everything works great.

Thank you very much for your quick response and your assistance.

Andrea
