VESC Tool 2.06 not working either on windows.

I tried on a fresh installed windows 10 on a Think pad laptop.

Same as the previous versions: Just a blank white window.

Tried with compatibility check to all other versions of windows, or running it as admin.

Put it into the two programs floder or the desktop but nothing helped.

The only machine I can get this program to work on is my desktop in my appartement, but it's hard to lift my bike up two stories, make an adjustment, then test, then lift it back.

Any ideas?

I would try to install Linux for it but failed to install this software. Too complicated for me.

I can't get it to work either on a fresh install of Windows 7... so my brand new controller is sitting doing nothing and a waste of money.

Hi, I was having the same issue and found out that the problem is in running it on external monitor with USB to HDMI adapter. You might want to try adjusting your screen or graphic card settings.

Yes manek is completly right. I use my laptop on a dockingstation with screens attached at work, I opend vesc tool there to check something. At home the laptop screen only wasnt able to "find" the screen and the tool seems white in the preview down in the taskbar. Thats a little big it seems :D

Seems like this problem still exists as of today, version 6.02.

I had a similar issue on my laptop, when opening the vesc tool, it only showed a small white window when hovering with the mouse cursor on the blue "V" icon on the taskbar, and nothing else.

After an hour of playing around, I've found a "fix" for it:

1. Open task manager;

2. Search for vesc_tool app under "Processes" tab;

3. Click on the small arrow to reveal VESC Tool;

4. Right-click on VESC Tool to reveal context menu;

5. Click on Maximize.

It should bring the graphical user interface back. Also, the resolution of the display should be at least 1920x1080 and scaling set to 100% to display everything correctly.

If your PC has lower resolution or higher scaling and the GUI is tiny when maximized, then minimizing and maximizing again should help.
