    Acer Launch Manager Stopped Working - Images Gone


    Hello friends.

    This is the first time this has ever happened so, I'm quite stomped. Today, my Launch Manger stopped working. In the past, an uninstall and reinstall of the product fixed the issue when it rarely occurred (only times in the past 8 years) Today, however, I've ran the full gambit of assault on uninstalling and registry clearing. I used Revo Unistaller Pro to uninstall Launch Manager and used CCleaner to clear old registry strings and and still nothing! Each time I attempt to reinstall the program, it still doesn't work.

    The OSDRC and OSDRC2 folders that normally house these image files:

    are now completely empty:

    I've tried simply copying and pasting the files over to no avail. There's something in the coding that's not calling the proper files to be used and I have not a clue on where the hiccup is. The [Fn] function key combos still work. The process just isn't using the visual image files as indicators.

    Launch Manager is listed as a start-up item in CCleaner but, it does not point to a file that's supposed to be starting..

    Task Manager does not list Launch Manager as a start-up item at all.

    I checked to make certain Normal Startup was selected in msconfig and it was and that didn't help. Now I am completely lost.

    Bump,

    I'm beginning to suspect it's because I'm using Windows 8.1 & not Windows 7. I'm gonna test it in a VM soon. Any input would be truly appreciated.

    I have v7.0.5 (Win 8) in my Win 8.1, you could try different versions from here:Download Drivers and Manuals | Acer Official Site
    One of them will work for you, it doesn't show in start up for me as well.

    I got v5.1.2 for W7 from another laptop model working for everything but, brightness. Are your brightness icons working? Do you have the same the laptop model as me? Which model did you choose? I'm going to try W8 for different models later today. Thanks for the reply.
