I am having an issue that doesn't appear to have occurred with many or at least no one is saying anything. My copy of Wiimote Smoothboard I am trying to use will not even start. I double click the icon after installing the newest 1.0 version and it pops up in my task manager for a second Smoothboard.exe and in the task bar for a split second and disappears entirely. I have synced the Wiimote successfully with Wiimote Whiteboard and it all worked great for that, but now the more advanced Smoothboard won't even start. I have fully updated .Net framework, and Windows Service Packs, everything I could even imagine that would cause problems. Any ideas? There's no error window, and if I open Wiimote Whiteboard it works fine still, IR detection and all. Please help, I would absolutely love to have this working and would buy a license if I put this up in my office (Knowing that I can make it work)

Try this:
1. Remove smoothboard
2. Navigate to c:/program folders
3. Delete 'boonjin' folder
4. Restart machine
5. Reinstall Smoothboard
6. Re start machine
7. Connect Wiimote (keep buttons 1&2 held through process)
8. Start Smoothboard (release buttons 1&2 when you press the 'open unregistered version button'

Let us know how you go

Does it load up any window?

Maybe you should try running the .net 3.5 framework installer again
