QuickTip: Fixing SCARM with Missing Window on Startup

If you start SCARM and then the program’s window does not appear when the splash screen goes off, the most common reason for that is undersized main window, displayed as a small box.

To check if that is your case, look for a small box with SCARM icon on the top left corner of the screen. It should look like the example below:


When you see it, drag its bottom-right corner with the mouse to expand it or just click over Maximize button to restore the SCARM window on the desktop.

Note
There are some known issues when SCARM is used in multi-monitor PC systems. If you have more than one monitor and don’t see SCARM on the current monitor, check also the other monitors where it may be shown.

  1. Hi, I am currently experience the issue where no main program window is displaying once the splash screen disappears. The program use to work and I’m not sure if it’s related to me updating my .net framework or visual C++ studio. I am currently running windows 7 professional and I have uninstalled the program and cleared the browser cache, restarted, downloaded current version, run as administrator on the exe package and still have same issue.

    Would appreciate assistance with this issue as this program is amazing and would hate not to be able to use it anymore.

    Thanks. Nathan.

  2. Hi Milen,
    Thanks for your response. I resolved the problem. I was using scarm in a dual monitor setup and one of the monitors broke. Would you believe that scarm was loaded on that screen at the time and somehow the memory retained the minimised window on the second monitor even through windows has only a primary monitor detected! As soon as I hooked up a completely different monitor there it was the minimised scarm window.
    Thanks for your help and great program.
