ComWin Starts but doesn't show up


I had ComWin installed on my computer and it worked well. I had to reinstall Windows and I install ComWin again, but now it doesn't work properly.

It starts, the icon even is shown in the taskbar, as you can see in the picture attached, but it doesn't show up, its window doesn't come out, and I can't do anything.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled it many times, but the same behaviour.

Any ideas?

By the way, is there any alternative software to ComWin?

Any info is welcome. Thank you.
