Display Issue in Qtegra


If display issues are experienced in Qtegra or one of the other Qtegra applications such as Instrument Control (ICP-MS only), such that for example a window will not move and is blocking access to some other function in the software or a window can’t be resized, it is very possible that the user config folder pertaining to the application experiencing the display issue has become corrupted.


  • Qtegra
  • iCAP 6000 Series
  • iCAP 7000 Series
  • iCAP Q
  • iCAP Qnova Series
  • iCAP PRO


1)    Close out of any open Qtegra applications: Qtegra, Instrument Control (used in conjunction with ICP-MS only), Configurator, etc.

2)    Navigate to: C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Thermo_Fisher_Scientific, where xxxx denotes the user who is currently logged on to Windows.

3)    Open the Thermo_Fisher_Scientific folder and then delete the folder pertaining to the application in question, see Figure 1 for snippet of the contents of this folder.

For example, if Qtegra is the application demonstrating display issue, then you will want to delete the “Qtegra.exe_StrongName_[long character string]” folder.
