Q: How to fix the message "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application." when starting OptiTUIO?
A: The Visual C++ 2015 runtime is not correctly installed. Make sure that the vcredist.exe corresponding to your architecture is installed. If you are using the 64-bit, try the 32-bit version instead.

Q: How to make a autostart configuration for OptiTUIO in Windows?
A: Create a shortcut of the OptiTUIO.Server.exe somewhere on your machine. Open the Properties file dialogue of the shortcut and paste the path to your configuration file *.otxml at the end of the Target path. Now you can put this shortcut to the autostart folder in windows.

Q: What is the difference between the online license and the offline license?
A: The online license is a demo license to use OptiTUIO for testing. The machine which runs OptiTUIO have to be connected to the internet. The offline license is a device based license. It is like a dongle for your specific device. You dont need a internet connection to run the software.

Q: Which operating systems are supported for OptiTUIO?
A: OptiTUIO is running on the following Operating systems: 
  • Mac OS X 10.7 Lion (64-bit only) or newer
  • Windows XP SP3 or newer
  • Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin or newer
  • Debian 7 Wheezy or newer

Q: Which lasers are supported by OptiTUIO?
A: For now we support the following sensors:

  • Sick LMS1xx
  • Sick LMS5xx
  • Leuze ROD4 plus
More sensors will be implemented in the future and for requests.

Q: How to start OptiTUIO in Debug mode
A: We put some special features into the Debug mode option. This option has to be licensed for special needs. If you have a debug license you can start OptiTUIO in Debug mode with the following steps:

  1. Create a shortcut of the OptiTUIO.Calibration.exe on your Desktop
  2. Right Click to the OptiTUIO.Calibration.exe Shortcut
  3. Click Properties
  4. Under the tab Shortcut you have the field Target
  5. In this field is the path to the OptiTUIO.Calibration.exe
  6. At the end of the whole path write: -debug
  7. c:/path_to_your_OptiTUIO.Calibration.exe -debug
  8. Click OK
  9. Start OptiTUIO.Calibration.exe via the shortcut
  10. In the OptiTUIO application you have now a new Button under the Devices tab called Debug
  11. When you assigned a sensor you are able to open the debug options
  12. Most of the options are very special and used for internal calculations.
  13. Dont change any options in the debug window if you dont know what they do
  14. The main options to change the behaviour is the Min. Touchsegments, Min. Touch Age and for troubleshooting with our support the Record functionality
