Affected releases:


Fixed releases:

No fixed releases provided.



After launching the Veeam Backup & Replication Console, the splash screen appears, and the application is shown in the taskbar, but the Console does not appear, and the mouseover preview is blank.


The Console's window position is off the edge of the screen. When the Veeam Backup & Replication Console is closed, its on-screen location is stored in a user-specific configuration file (see More Information section). If the Console was previously closed while using a screen with a higher resolution or a second monitor, the coordinates stored may be outside the bounds of the current screen.


Reposition the Veeam Backup & Replication Console Window Hold Shift and Right-Click the tray icon. Select Move from the list.

An alternative solution is to edit this user.config file and change the MainWindowPosition value to 0,0. <setting name="MainWindowPosition" serializeAs="String">     <value>0, 0</value> </setting>
