    Good News,
    together with Lord_Zath I figured out how to talk to the the new alienfx device. Luckly they didn't change the protocoll. You simply need a other way of sending the data to the device using the winapi. Found that on google (the other way, not the solution ;-) )
    Again big thanks to Lord_Zath for his help so far. If this works I can soon provide all my alienfx apps for the new m17x too.

    Regards Ingrater

    Ingrater, I tried the program but none of the LED's went off. At first it complained about a missing DLL file so I installed it into the old LED tester's directory, overwriting the original .exe file. During the test, no lights went off, so I said no. It continued to ask at each LED if it was off - the answer was always no...

    Did the DLL change as well? If so, could you please re-upload the .zip file w/the new dll in it?

    The DLL didn't change as it is a standard dll which comes with my compiler. It's difficult to get it working as I can not test it myself. I changed the leds tester again and reuploaded it. Please retry.

    But it is a progress that the program runs and does not crash at disabeling the leds.

    Regards Ingrater

    The LEDs are all white and controled by your script except the power button. The power button remains the color set by the user and is unchanged during the process.
