Why is Topscan is iconized on WIN 11 and Clarion 11.1?

Topscan opens iconized and I’m never able to browse a TPS file with it. It worked fine for several days and now it doesn’t. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

Probably a jacked-up .INI.

Look for Topscan.ini in %AppData%\SoftVelocity\Clarion\YourVersion


Oh, I never thought of that. I will check that topscan.ini file for sure. Thank you for your reply.

That solved my problem. Topscan works great now. Thanks again.

TopScan from Ver 11 likes to store its current window location when it is closed. So, if you minimize it to the taskbar and then close it from the taskbar or shutdown your computer, it records a window position that is way off the screen AND it sets its height and width to zero! If I look at my TopScan.ini after doing the above I see:

The best thing would be to have a small program that you could run to reset those four variables. For now, I just live with having to press the escape key to close TopScan, if it opens offscreen. Then I run a batch file to erase the TopScan.ini file and then I re-open TopScan:

erase %APPDATA%\SoftVelocity\Clarion\11.0\TopScan.ini

When this happens, try ALT + SPACE
(This brings up the top left WINDOW menu of the selected/focused app.)

Then press/click MAXIMIZE.

Then just drag the maximized window away from the top a little bit…
