    hi ,

    i have an error message when i shut down or reboot my M17xR4 with GTX675m "the alienfx has not working" or something like that .
    I follow the first post guide for install the drivers and i try to remove Alien Command Controll and reinstall it more times but i have ever this problem.

    I try to fix .net framework 3.5 but without any success.

    All the keyboard light are working but the Alien CC stuck windows in shoot down

    You do not need to download 3.5 Framework, it is included in Windows, just enable it in "Turn Windows features on or off". :)

    Yes you can do that as well. It's not included though, it actually downloads it online and installs it so either method is fine.

    Not related to .NET Framework, but a similar pain in the bottom to deal with is C++ updates.

    I've been using this for a while now and find it really handy after a clean Windows installation.

    Yeah I'd install basically any C++ package at this point.

    Make sure to have 2005

    2008 x32/x64

    2010 x32/x64 for sure.

    I must try a clean install of Win 10 , install all c++ , enable .net 3.5 , then install Alien cc .

    Thank You All , after install all c++ i remove alienware cc and osd, reboot , clean registry , reboot , install acc , reboot without error , install alienware osd , reboot and all works good :D

    For those alienware with the soudblaster recon 3di card you can obtain the windows 10 driver form the alienware 17r2
    and for the panel use the one for the window 8.1 ,

    Yup the widnows 10 driver exist just never annouced and released
    For the panel is a volountary to lock this one to a specific sound card , just if you study the code you can discover is a dll who control that , If someone know how to extract some information from two dll and reproduce to match with the new version of this panel it will fix the problem for each laptop

    Hi!
    excuse the possibly silly question but, m18x R2 and alien 18 should not be affected by "NVIDIA WHQL Drivers are Killing Alienware and Clevo LCD Panels"?
    why in this thread we can install Windows 10? what I did not understand?

    I have an M18x R1 and I would understand if I have a chance to do upgrade to Windows 10 in order to take advantage of the dx12 to the 2x780m.

    sorry if this is not the thread where I would have to ask the question.

    Thanks!
