Issue Details

I have one touch screen monitor plugged in to my Windows Embedded CompactDAQ (cDAQ) and when I unplug it and plug in a different touch screen monitor, nothing appears on the new monitor. 


This is expected behavior. In order to switch between connected touch screen monitors, you will need to reboot the Windows Embedded cDAQ. Once you reboot, the touch screen monitor should connect and you can view and interact with it. 

If you still do not see anything, ensure you have the correct drivers installed for the monitor. If you are using a National Instruments Touch-Screen Monitor, see the manual on how to set up your system to communicate with your CompactDAQ.
