Default Problem with i2PDF

Just recently downloaded i2PDF after reviewing the articles on this site. No problems downloading; unzipped the files, read the readme file and clicked on i2PDF.exe.
And nothing happens.
Task manager shows the program running but there is nothing on my screen nor any icons showing in the taskbar or notification area to show the program is running. No error messages encountered.
What is the problem and solution to this?

I am running Vista Home Premium SP2. 32bit.

I just downloaded it and it worked fine for me. Do you have i2PDF shown in the task manager in the applications tab? Then right click it and select bring to front.

Greetings and thank you George for your assistance.
Tried right clicking the program in task manager, it just bought up the folder where the program is located.
I can usually troubleshoot minor glitches but this one has me stumped.

Useless program. Downloaded, unzipped, clicked on .exe and program will not open. But task manager shows program is running.
Searched the net for solution but no postings and everyone I asked for assistance was pretty blase about it.
Highly overrated and worthless application. "

So you weren't actually able to try the program (for some reason), and decided it's an overrated and worthless application ?

Oooooookey.

@solophantom

When you bring up the Windows Task Manager (WTM), it has several tabs on the top.

Under the "Processes" tab, if you right click i2pdf.exe, WTM pops up a context menu which includes "Open File Location" for you to choose.

Under the "Applications" tab, if you right click i2pdf.exe, WTM pops up a context menu where you can choose either "Switch To" or "Bring to Front".

Please check again if this is the way that works.

In my tests on the 32-bit system, this program works well in Windows Vista and 7.

It runs on a non-maximized window and set to 'Stay on Top' by default. If you have Windows Explorer or other programs set to 'Always on top', the i2pdf window may go underneath. The i2pdf program icon doesn't appear in the notification area (system tray), but it does appear on the taskbar when the program is running.

Hope this is of help.

Actually "stay on top" should be disabled by default (when you run the program for the first time).

This is the .ini created by default at the first run:

; ************************************************** ******************************
; Configuration file for i2pdf 1.0.43
; You should not manually edit this file, unless you know what you are doing, but
; you can safely delete it if you want to restore all settings to factory defaults.
; ************************************************** ******************************

ShowSizeCondensed = 1
SortIncludingPath = 0
Preprocessing = 1
DocTitleFromFileName = 0

EnableSubFolders = 0
JpgNoRecompression = 0


StayOnTop = 0 means disabled.

I don't have an explanation for the problem reported, it's the first time I heard about it. It's strange especially on the first run because the file .ini has not been created yet and so it cannot be corrupted (for example with some weird off-screen position saved into it).

At the first run the program open its window at the upper-left coordinates of (100,100) so it should be right there.
