Title On The Mark main form appears in taskbar but is not shown on screen
Products On The Mark v0.85 (pre-release 1)
Symptoms After the OTM splash screen is shown, the OTM program appears in the task bar but the window is not shown on the screen.  Attempts to view the window via Alt-Tab do not work.
Cause OTM saves window state information to the registry each time a form is opened or closed. For some reason the screen coordinates that are stored in the registry have become corrupt and the result is that the main window is moved to a screen coordinate that is outside of the viewable area of the screen.
Status This is a known issue and will be addressed in the next release of OTM.
Resolution Launch OTM Locksmith (which does not suffer from the same problem) and click the "Clear Global" button.  Then click the "Save" button and exit OTM Locksmith.

Note that this will erase all global configuration data for OTM and will reset the sample counter value to zero.

Alternatively, delete the following registry keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\
On The Mark v0.85\Global\CalibMain_posx

- and -

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\
On The Mark v0.85\Global\CalibMain_posy


Update 17 April 1998:

This issue has been resolved in OTM v0.86 rev 0.  Please contact Metralis support if you need this update.
