CamStudio Recorder Window Disappearing Act
I had just downloaded CamStudio, with the intention of making Let's Plays with it eventually. (For those of you who don't know, an LP is essentially a walkthrough of a game with recorded commentary to go along with it.) I was trying it out, but while I was searching online for a couple things, the recording window seemed to disappear.
I have no memory of exiting out of the program. I tried to bring it back up, but each time I double-clicked on its icon, all that happened was the cursor changed to its "loading" appearance for only a second. I figured it might be a setting I changed, but since I couldn't get the window to appear, I couldn't tell.
I tried several times to delete the programs and reinstall them, but it refused to do so, because, apparently, the Recorder was open the whole time. AND I STILL COULDN'T SEE IT. It didn't seem to be randomly invisible; it didn't appear in the taskbar at all. And since I couldn't see it, I couldn't quit it.
Finally, I sucked it up, saved my session on Google Chrome, and restarted my computer. Since this manually quit the program, I could successfully delete it upon startup. I then reinstalled it, and I have the Recorder open right now. I'm afraid to X off of it, because it might go wonky again. Could someone please offer assistance?
