Solved Logitech Setpoint

Hello all, just wondering if anyone else is having the same issue I am and maybe found a solution to it.
I installed Logitech setpoint 6.30 and my mouse and keyboard tabs are missing, so I can't assign any values to my keyboard or mouse hotkeys. I only have the Information resources and SetPoint options. I tried looking up a similar problem in the logitech forums and it says to uninstall, reboot, delete "C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\wdf01000.sys" and re-install. I would try this, except "C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\wdf01000.sys" does not seem to exist in windows 8. I have tried installing previous versions of SetPoint but to no avail. Any ideas?

Initially, I installed the Setpoint drivers and had the same problem. Also the pictures for the device were not downloaded. I had the pictures for the device saved and put them in the folders, but still had problems with the Setpoint interface. I looked on Logitech and found another way to install them after the initial failure (which did work). But I still experienced problem with the Setpoint interface.

The best way I found to install these was to turn off UAC. I turned off UAC, but someone on the forum mentioned that UAC was not totally turned off and you had to modify "EnableLUA" in the registry to completely turn off UAC. So I changed Enable LUA to 0 (I rebooted after making these changes):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"EnableLUA"=dword:00000000
; on=1, off=0


After I did these modifications, Setpoint had no problem installing the driver and interface. I haven't turned UAC back on yet.

One issue:
If you disable UAC using the registry method (changing "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cu rrentVersion\Policies\System" to 0), the Metro Apps cease to function.

Unfortunately, SetPoint fails to function properly once the registry setting is returned to its default "1".

I haven't tried the 4.x versions but I found a sort of a work around for SetPoint v.6.30.

Once you boot into Win8, exit the tray icon then re-install.
Works great, then, without changing the EnableLUA registry setting.
I've tried it three times. Hasn't failed yet. Note that upon booting up I couldn't change settings (no mouse in the settings app).

Hang on, I haven't tried it yet to see if the settings carry over after a reboot without re-installing SetPoint v.6.3.0 even though the app doesn't show the mouse or available options thereof.

brb ...

EDIT: Nope. Gotta exit the tray and re-install every time. Still, the settings are saved in the app just not effective until a re-install. (I am specifically talking about non-default button assignments on the mouse - an M510 in my case)

Fixed the problem:

Installed Setpoint 4.00 64bit from the Logitech FTP site. Whereas 6.3 would install with LUA turned off - it wasn't possible to use Uberoptions, which is the only way to use a Logitech mouse. 4.00 allows you to use Uberoptions. You dont get the pretty on screen effects of Setpoint 6.3, but having a middle mouse button is worth it.

Found a Work around!!
"C:\Program Files\Logitech\SetPointP\SetPoint.exe" <- Set to Run as an administrator
Turn off UAC in users
Create a task in Scheduler -> Basic Task -> start a program -> point it too the above -> Run when i log onto my computer
Go to the properties for this task after you have created it, then run as windows 7 at the bottom, check hidden and run with highest privilages

Let me know if that works for you...

Setpoint 6.32 fixes this issue.

Update to it.
One should get an automatic update but, if you don't:

P.S. With a Hebrew keyboard, SetPoint 6.51 wreaks havoc with the typing. Logitech really needs to come up with a truly Windows 8 compatible keyboard driver.
