Ok, so i connect the wiimote using bluetooth. no issues... gets the whiteboard program running, caliberates and the 4 points are recognized well and then the white caliberation screen goes away. After this i cannot get the IR pen to move the cursor. the program says that 1 IR source is detected but no cursor movement or clicks.

I am using windows 7. Did anyone else face this issue?

Hi,

Most probably you are using Johnny Lee's original Wiimote Whiteboard app which does not work on 64-bit operating systems.

Hi,

I do not think that he has released a 64-bit compatible version.

You may want to try Smoothboard instead which should work on your operating system.

You can always give http://code.google.com/p/wiituio/ a go if you want to use Windows 7 with multi touch :) you do need to install a driver though (instructions in the readme) so it is a little more involved than getting Smoothboard working. :)

I had the same problem . Pentabulous worked for me. Win 7 64-bit Sucks. Nothing but compatibility problems. This touch screen stuff is awesome. :P

I am having the same issue. I used a win7 64 bit machine with the updated software (1.2) from this site. It worked flawlessly until I restarted the computer. It calibrates fine but then no cursor movement.  Yes the cursor control is selected.  I also installed wii whiteboard software on an xp 32bit machine and it calibrates fine then the cursor doesnt move.  The application senses the IR light and the batteries still have a full charge.   I also used the smoothboard software. It works fine but i would like to keep this as inexpensive as possible for my district.  Any thoughts?

Hi,

The software that you are using is a prototype software which does not support 64-bit operating system.

If you are looking for an end-user product for the district that is used by thousands of users, you may want to consider Smoothboard. We do have bulk licensing available for schools.

You may contact us via our contact form at http://www.smoothboard.net/contact
