Alright,

So I've set up my Wiimote whiteboard system; although once I set up my second monitor (which is a Projector) to exteded desktop mode,  I cannot figure out a way to calibrate the whiteboard projection.

Is there any way around this problem?  Does anyone know of a way to get the Whiteboard software to calibrate for the secondary display instead, without changing my windows monitor settings?

The monitors are not side by side exatly; they're slightly offset from each other; and so calibrating my laptop monitor would not accurately solve this, and the projected screen is of inconsistent scale, relative to the laptop screen.  Any suggestions?

I realize that I could make the projected screen my primary, but the projection is not always turned on.

I would prefer that it remain secondary, and that the calibration registers for the secondary projection only.

I'm not completely certain, but the answer to my own question might be in a new program:

Wiimote Smoothboard 0.4.6 with Enhanced User Interface

Anyone else with this problem should probably check this site

FYI Boonjin wrote that program in conjunction with this forum! Perhaps some reading is in order  ;D

Yes Smoothboard will provide some assistance, but it is a known problem with most Wiimote Applications that dual monitors may cause various issues. It works for some but not others, very trial and error. If you read through the Smoothboards discussion thread and the all the discussions in Wiimote IWB you will find several posts about this issue some may give you some support.

Boonjin is not sure on the full reason as different errors between users. That said its not seen as a critical function so will likely be solved over time rather than a critical error.
