I am using Vista (32-Bit) and installed BlueSoleil 6 and Wiimote Whiteboard v2 today.  I built the LED pen and everything works fine when using the pen as a mouse.  As soon as I calibrate, the whiteboard application screen disappears and is no longer there.  A taskbar button says "Wiimote Whiteboard" but it is only the Wiimote battery reading and the calibration button.  I also tried the first version of the whiteboard application and keep getting the same message.  Any thoughts on how to keep the whiteboard application from going away?

From my gatherings, the whiteboard software is just a tool to allow you to use the IR pen... it doesn't actually contain a whiteboard. Try opening up paint, and once calibrated, try using the pen on there.

Yes the Wiimote Whiteboard application is only teh interface between your IR-Pen and your computer. You need additional software for the Whiteboard functionality.

I personally use Onenote (MS Office product) or you can try:
www.kindlelab.com - opensource IWB software
or
http://www.dklevine.com/general/software/tc1000/jarnal.htm Jarnal an opensource Notetaking software similar to Onenote.

p.s. Hope your using Boonjin's app http://www.boonjin.com/wp kicks JCL demo and has so many cool features, about to release a new version with minor bug fixes and better GUI.
