The iMON Device Disconnection problem with Game Controller

[Symptoms]

When some games or Windows Control Panel’s Game Controllers is running, the problem that iMON device is disconnected and then connected repeatedly occurs with some models and some versions of iMON hardware.

[Cause]

This problem occurs because Windows DirectInput Device Enumeration API function requests the ‘device description string’ of iMON hardware even it talks to Windows that it does not support the description string.

[Solution]

In order to avoid this problem, iMON device should be disabled before the Windows DirectInput Device Enumeration API function is called. Because some games and Windows Control Panel’s Game Controllers call this API function periodically, it would be better disable iMON device before these programs are running and enable it again after exiting these programs.

[Tool and patch file]

One tool and new iMON.exe file are supported in order for users faced on this problem to make iMON device disable/enable easily. Please refer the following;

<< For iMON Manager Version 7.60.0521 or later >>

4.        Move EnableDisableiMON.exe to the folder where you could easily access such as Windows Desktop.
(Because the step 1 to 4 is for applying patch and being ready to use the tool, there’s no need to do these steps again if once applied. The following step 5 to 7 should be done whenever you’d like to enjoy game program.)

5.        Before running a game program, run EnableDisableiMON.exe first.
