I have a G731GV, Everything "ROG" related was working perfectly, but I needed a refresh to get rid of the 4 years of needless junk on the laptop.
So I downloaded all the drivers and software packages for the laptop after doing a fresh install of Win 10. Now... Armoury Crate will not get past the "Prerequisites Install". Every time I start Armoury Crate, it goes through the install again and wants a reboot. If I tell it to restart later, I can open Armoury Crate (But it takes a LONG TIME), but a lot of the functions do not work.
Is there any way, or anyone who can provide an older version, a version that works.. or a workaround to get this to work? Without it, I am missing out on a lot of the features and functions of the laptop.
No, there seems to be NO WAY to revert to an older version. The ONLY way I was able to go back to a working version of Armory Crate and Aura Creator was to restore to a backup of my system. Thank god I do those fairly regularly as the current Armory Crate is junk on my system. At least the older version works. The biggest problem is that Armory Crate is updated automatically by Windows Updates so on Windows 11 it took some effort to find a way to prevent the update from automatically updating on it's own. Which is why I suspect that they don't give up older, working, versions. Windows would simply detect the old version and download and update to the current version.
I did manage a way to block Armory Crate from updating but so far have not been able to prevent the Aura Create from updating as it breaks in the same way as Armory Crate. (Doesn't detect my Viper Steel RAM's RGB). Very annoying. Especially since it hasn't worked right since I got the system up until the release just before the last one. Then on the last one they not only break Aura Create but Armory Crate which had previously always detected the Viper Steel RAM's RGB.
So I am looking at another system restore and then hopefully I can block Aura Create in a similar way.
