Can't get task bar to appear on two monitors

I am on Windows 2000 with display fusion version 3.1.1. I used to be able to get the task bar to appear on two monitors. When downloading the most recent version of DF, and when going to settings and specify task bar on two monitors, nothing happens and the task bar appears only on one monitor?????

Could you please copy and paste the troubleshooting information here? You'll find this when you right click on display fusion - go to settings - then go to the trouble shooting tab. You'll see a big textbox with a bunch of information - copy all that here.

It looks like it's failing to create the Taskbars on startup. Can you enabled the "Debug.log" option on the Troubleshooting tab, and restart DisplayFusion? After the Taskbars fail to load again can you post the contents of that log here? Thanks!

Hi Barry, thanks for being so patient. I was able to track down the issue and fix it in the 3.1.3 version. It will be released in the next couple of days. Thanks!

Just wanted to reply and thank you for your help. When I downloaded the new version of software, I experienced only one task bar. After readjusting all of the setting and restarting - all is well and once again I do have a task bar on each moniter.
This is a great piece of software - keep up the good work.
