    For anyone having vcruntime140_1.dll error with any of the OBSIDIAN-PC software, it seems related to Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable.

    I always thought that Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable is equivalent to Microsoft Visual C++ Minimum Runtime + Additional Runtime but it is not. The later seems to have additional stuff that the software is using.

    I use the all-in-one installers from Major Geeks. This one installs latest Minimum + Additional and seems to work while this one installs Redistributable and causes the vcruntime140_1.dll error.

    My fellow forummembers,

    I just "discovered" (mentioned on a other forum) this forum and I was very glad for it.
    I downloaded and installed Obsidian-PC Updater but I am not able to use it.
    It is stuck on the "About"-tab and I can't do anything.... I Guess I need to activate it, but how?
    Do I need to purchase a license? The button "Purchase" links to a non existing page!

    If it is necessary how and where can I obtain a valid license?
    The only page one can obtain a license is here, but that seems to be for "Fan Control"!

    Can anybody explain to me how to go about this problem?

    I purchased at a retailer in March 2017 (see my signature for my specs).

    Looking forward to hear from you. :)

    @Dmitry Zyabko
    So, that means I can't use Obsidian-PC Updater?

    Thanks!
    But.... sorry, I don't no what that means...!?
    Is there any prospect as to when things will be restored?

    As I mentioned before: do I need to buy a license or how does it work?

    Yes you will have to buy a license to use Fan Control and Updater.

    However not sure how, as currently there is something wrong with their website. Also no idea about restoring - some people waiting month for a reply.. Some people didnt get their refreshed license after changing CPU for example

    Okay, thank you so much for this information.

    It's too bad, I was hoping to give it a try now that I am replacing my current SSD M.2 and
    installing Windows 10 from "scratch".

    I wish the developer / webmaster loads of luck!

    So far all drivers can be easily sourced from Clevo's website or XMG's (by the way their site - at least for me was most useful in terms of bios/drivers). Other than that - you can use Snappy Driver Installer and wait until John fixes the website and software..

    For keyboard LED control you can use my small app - http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/clevo-p870xx-p775xx-cover-kb-led-manager.835084/

    The most worth software made by Obsidian - is Fan Control and for that John has my utmost respect and thanks)
