Delta control panel won't open; appears in the taskbar but the interface is not visible
Text size [-] [+]

Q: When I try to open the Delta control panel, the program appears in the Windows taskbar at the bottom of the screen, but I can't see the control panel.  How do I get the control panel to open?

A: If the Delta Control Panel application appears at the bottom of your screen on the taskbar, but the control panel window it self is not visible, right-click the application in the taskbar and choose "maximize". 

If it doesn't appear:

  • Click on the task bar icon to make the Delta Control Panel the active/selected Window
  • Press alt + spacebar
  • Press m
  • Press a directional arrow
  • Move your mouse and you should be able to place the control panel back on screen where you want it

 

Another option method is to right-click and choose "move", then try using the arrow keys to bring it back on screen. 



Alternatively you can delete the registry key for the Delta Control Panel's Window layout.  Make sure the Delta Control Panel is closed, then press Start+R to open the Run dialog box and type "regedit".  Locate and delete the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\M-Audio\deltaiicpl\WindowLayout

Either way, check to make sure you have the latest drivers for your video/graphics cards from the manufacturers website.


If the control panel won’t open at all from the System Tray, create shortcut on your desktop to point to deltaiicpl.exe located in the windows\system32 folder.
