    Friends, is there a keyboard LED separate from the CCC?

    Keyboard LED is indeed working on our models, the only models that do not work are models with Per-Key RGB.
    The only requirement for Keyboard LED to work on non-Per-Key-RGB is you need to at least install Fan Control and run it once...

    As for why i´m so pissed and participate so little on this project nowadays is that even CLEVO stock BIOS include our OBSIDIAN tags in an attempt to unlock our software, FREAKING CLEVO!

    To stop piracy we basically need to spend more time on piracy protection then actually developing this. This is just ridiculous.

    Hey, sorry to hear about the scummy behavior by Clevo and other companies. I just did a fresh install of Windows on my PB71RF-G and instead of Clevo Control Center, I opted to use your Control Station and Fan Control instead. Everything seems to be working great aside from two things. One, the rgb. Since mine is per-key I didn't download your version of the keyboard software. Would downloading the Clevo keyboard component from the Microsoft Store and having it run at start conflict in any with the operation of control station or the fan software?

    The other, which may be and probably is completely unrelated to your software, is that now my laptop goes into sleep/hibernation even though my windows and control station settings are set to never do this. Any idea why this would happen?

    Control Station stopped working after update.

    EDIT - downloaded and reinstalled. Working now.

    I had the same problem, VCRUNTIME140_1.dll not found error.

    Manual download doesn't work, got a "could not extract phonejack.exe" error

    The manual install (download the full package again) works, that problem seems to be caused by the fact you have that file running.
    Reboot and try again or just kill phonejack.exe from the taskmanager.

    It's funny, they didn't want to disclose some EC properties so the software could be better.... but they surely can try to steal something that it's better than their CC piece of crap :|
