RE: WP 2.0 does not properly count
I am getting the same issue. I tried lots of different things, but I can't figure it out. I am thinking there is a bug somewhere, but not sure were the bug is at tho.

RE: WP 2.0 does not properly count
From the descriptions, this looks like the team missed something. I have no idea when it will be fixed, but have you checked you network options? I have a feeling that's not it, but it's worth a shot. It's holiday time, so I won't expect anything to be done until after the new year.

I installed WP to track my stepmania keystrokes so it's a bit annoying if it doesn't work Confused

I tried all of the above (reinstalled WP, installed WinPCap, gave admin privileges) but still doesn't register.

Any ideas ? Smile

Edit: did some additional testing and when I run the game and alt-tab it, it doesn't register either. With the game still alt-tabbed, I restarted WP and it was registering again. But once I went back to the game, it stopped again.

As a fellow Stepmania player, your problem is playing fullscreen. Use windowed mode, it'll even increase your performance as you don't have to move your eyes as much.

RE: WP 2.0 does not properly count
Same problem. Need to restart app after exiting fullscreen.
That only counts for games, not for movies or software, so only "true" fullscreen.
Windows 7 64bit here.

RE: WP 2.0 does not properly count
For now, there is one solution. In order for the client to count stats, games must be played in windowed mode if possible.

I tried everything above, and I also used Windowed mode (Stepmania). It still doesn't track my keytaps.

I use Windows 7 64bit by the way.

RE: WP 2.0 does not properly count
And it was working in 1.7?

I think we are hitting Windows API limits, we could switch back to the old counting code from 1.7 for fullscreen applications.

Which Windows API's are WP tied into and which one is affected?
