    Actually it's the Alps touchpad utility in a Dell laptop, but the new
    tcmd beta version thinks it can be attached as a tab. It attaches as a
    plain black screen, which AFAIK does no harm other than looking foolish.

    The current licensed version does not see it as attachable.

    Take Command v11 allows you to attach GUI apps to tab windows. However, the
    app has to meet some basic criteria -- it has to be resizable, and it has to
    only have one main window. I don't have a Dell laptop or the Alps touchpad
    utility, but I suspect it doesn't meet those criteria.

    The workaround is straightforward -- don't put GUI apps into tab windows if
    they won't work there! :-)

    It's also possible that the driver is opening a hidden console window for some reason. v11 will find hidden console windows; v10 doesn't.
