FRAPs not recording / capturing the desktop DWM

A very quick hint, FRAPs can sometimes get confused by running programs and not capture the whole desktop, usually not displaying the frame counter.

In my case the program doing this was Logitech setpoint, others have reported different programs, but you can usually find out what application is causing the problem by trying to capture whilst monitoring the files in the Capture folder as the file generated will be named after the thing being recorded.

Yes, it’s as simple as that in most cases.
