  1. Hi, everyone! Well, I had issues with my Windows theme not rotating the desktop after waking up from sleep and suspected my TT RGB Plus task, so I disabled it. That wasn't the answer, but it somehow broke my old fix. So I installed the new update and decided to just figure it out. The new update x64 version of TT RGB plus crashes every time my computer goes into standby. So I was able to remove the Action to start taskkill.exe, and just leave the one to start TT RGB Plus.exe, because it kills itself just fine (Ha). For the action to start TT RGB Plus.exe, I had to change directories for the .exe to the Program Files one, due to it now being 64-bit. I don't have a GUI unless I manually start the program, but my lights and fan speeds reset to where I want them to when I start the computer anyway, so it's no big deal. And I only have one version open at a time, even on startup... I noticed TT added an "At logon" task for the 64-bit version, but also left the "At system startup" option for the old 32-bit version, so I had to point it to the new folder for the 64-bit version. And my fix doesn't come into play unless waking the computer, so it doesn't open any extra versions. I hope that helps any one who has updated to v1.28. And if you know how to use Task Scheduler to get your desktop background to change when waking from sleep... I'm all ears!
  2. Wow. Note to self: do not update the TT app. You're right it didn't take all of that to get it to work, and that there is an event for TT RGB Plus on startup that the program itself put in there, not me. From what I can tell, my task doesn't have anything to do with startup, because the event trigger is a wake from sleep, not initial startup. Have to blame the update for all of the screwiness on startup. There's a program called Revo Uninstaller that goes into the registry to clean everything when you use it to uninstall an app. Other than a system restore or restoring from a recent backup, I don't know how else to completely purge the damage the update has done. I'll think on it some more though.
  3. Either uninstall/reinstall to fix a registry issue/clear and reset the setting for startup or check msconfig so see if it’s disabled there for startup. If I think of something else I’ll post it. Didn’t have that issue myself though. Sounds Windows related moreso than Tt.
  4. @bourbonbeast: I didn't get any pop-ups like that, but I did get warnings when the two ports not plugged in (I have two controllers, one with 5 Riings and the other with 3) were set as fans in TT RGB Plus. Setting them to the default Lumi Plus was the only way to clear them, because there is no setting for "nothing plugged in." I also got connectivity issues with the power plugs because the floppy-type plugs really need to be snapped in hard. That's about all I can think of on that subject.
  5. @starstreak: I wish I could help you. I didn't have any issues at all with flickering. I have TT RGB plus set to start with Windows (box filled in), and my scheduled task runs a taskkill executable against the TT RGB Plus program. I didn't set it to run a check at all, just attack the process and if it's there in the way, it dies. Then the starting of the program happens as a new action, so in your case with TT Plus off, it was trying to kill the task and hitting nothing, then starting the program. A possible work around to the work around might be to schedule a second task that does the same thing... or maybe there is an issue with it not stopping the existing running task before running itself again? This part: "Settings Tab: Change the "If the task is already running, then the following rule applies:" drop-down to "Stop the existing instance". Then click OK." So many quotation marks...
  6. @bourbonbeast: Yes, I forgot to mention that you want to go to the drop-down just above that ("Log:") and select "System". I have edited my post. Sorry about that!
  7. Hello, all! I was on the phone with Tt support earlier because I am having this same issue and I was able to submit an RMA with their guidance to get the revised power cables for my Riing 12 Plus fan controller boxes, but not wanting to wait and see I was on here most of last night trying the two Task Scheduler-based workarounds. They didn't work for me. So I've spent the past couple of hours figuring it out and I have a solution that works for me. Hopefully anyone else out there for whom the first two also don't work and who spent $200 on these fans only to see unicorn vomit every time the wake their computers up will find this extremely helpful. This is in Windows 10, by the way. Start by opening Task Scheduler (search it in your Cortana search bar) Action->Create Task... General Tab: Name it "TT RGB Plus Restart" or whatever you want. Same tab, check the radio button for "Run whether user is logged on or not" and check the box for "Do not store password. The task will only have access to local computer resources." Then check the box for "Run with highest privileges" Triggers Tab: New...-> then in the new "New Trigger" window that opens up, next to "Begin the task:" choose the drop-down option "On an event". Down under "Settings" leave it on "Basic" and use the "Log:" drop-down menu to select "System". Then use the "Source" drop-down menu to select "Kernel-General". In the "Event ID" box, type "1". Then click OK. Actions Tab: New...-> then in the new "New Action" window that opens up, enter "C:\Windows\System32\taskkill.exe" (quotes included) into the "Program/script:" box. In the "Add arguments (optional):" box, type /IM /F "TT RGB Plus.exe" (quotes included). In the "Start in (optional):" box, type "C:\Windows\System32\" without the quotes. Then click OK. New...-> then in the new "New Action" window that opens up, enter "C:\Program Files (x86)\Tt\TT RGB Plus\TT RGB Plus.exe" (quotes included) into the "Program/script:" box. Change this according to where it is installed on your machine or just navigate to it using the "Browse..." button in this window instead. Then click OK. Conditions Tab: Uncheck the box for "Start the task only if the computer is on AC power". Settings Tab: Change the "If the task is already running, then the following rule applies:" drop-down to "Stop the existing instance". Then click OK. That should do it! Every time you bring you computer out of Sleep, it will show unicorn vomit for a few seconds and then set it to clean white rings like mine or whatever you've got your profile set to. I hope this helps! PS: I recommend right-clicking the TT RGB Plus icon in the task tray and enabling the start with Windows option, and then shutting down and restarting your computer before or after implementing this workaround.
