When I use an interactive whiteboard with pen before launching Google Chrome it stops working after it launches.
This problem was appeared about a week ago and still remain.
If I unplug the USB-cable and plug-in it back while Google Chrome is opened, the board won’t turn on (and only restarting the computer helps to turn the board on).
But if I unplug the USB-cable and relaunch Google Chrome and after that plug-in the cable back, it will work.
Is it possible to fix this issue?

Thank you for posting and giving this information,
Please could you let us know what model of ActivBoard you are using (not including serial number)?
Please could you also let us know the current firmware version shown listed within ActivManager Control Panel?
What version is Google Chrome currently running?

Can I ask if you are using Chrome> If so please type chrome://flags/ into Chrome and enable touch features.
This may resolve the issue.

I changed the flag “Enable touch events” to “Automatic”.
But it did not help to resolve the issue. Chrome still blocks touchscreen fully…

I’ve also tried “Enable touch events” to “Enable”. No effect…

It seems that Google Chrome has updated recently which is causing issues with this model of ActivBoard and older firmware (information on this can be seen on this post: https://community.prometheanworld.com/en/discussion/7001247/widespread-outages-on-mac-10-11#latest)
Please could you try updating the firmware from the below link which is designed specifically for the 378 ActivBoard (both Pro and Standard models):
Instructions for the firmware can be found on this link:
I hope this information helps.
