I believe the problem is in my pen but can someone give me some feedback. I'm not a very tech savvy person but i just had to try this program, and its great. Everything seems to work as shown but when i tried drawing or grabbing a window and dragging it doesn't register. The window doesn't move and the drawings are dots or little straight lines, it's not smooth and fluent as shown in many videos.

Can someone tell me how to fix this? I'm planning to make a new pen soon but is there a set up or something i'm missing? Power output on the bulb is 13-14mW?? 

Thanks.

When I have had this problem it was always because I had dead batteries or low-quality LEDs.  Try a fresh battery and one of the LEDs from Mouser.  The one Johnny Lee recommends on his site.

Edit:  He recommends the TSAL6200.  From Mouser.com

COuld there we be something else that's wrong? It moves perfectly fine but i can't pick up objects like how you right click and hold an item.

Any interference between the wiimote and the led on the tip of your pen could cause you to loose your click and hold. Also if your wiimote is too far away it gets a little jumpy, you may want to try it on a monitor instead of a wall. White surfaces are really good if your projecting though it reflects the IR a little better.

My wiimote is about 3 feet away and the only time i tried it was on my monitor  :-[. hopefully things will change when i get a new IR LED
