Good day to all! It worked for me. Manually launched Aura Wallpaper Service.exe along the path C: \ Program Files \ ASUS \ Aura Wallpaper Service


Thank you! It worked for me.

Asus seems to not add the wallpaper software to start with the system. So for me to make it work i made a new entry for it in the windows task scheduler. (the pictures will be from a swedish OS).

I see that others showed how to do this as well, but this is the graphical manual version. 😛

1. Open Windows Task Scheduler and select the ASUS folder.

2. On the right side choose create activity, name it whatever you want, but i named it as seen on the picture for ease of use. Make sure your settings match the ones in the picture below.

3. Add an activator on the second tab then press "new...". Choose "when logging in". When finnished it should look like this.

4. Then on the third tab you also press new then press the button to locate the software to run. It should be in the following location unless your Asus was installed somewhere else. "C:\Program Files\ASUS\Aura Wallpaper Service" Then choose the asuswallpaper.exe
91216

5. If you're unsure about the settings you can copy the settings from the "ArmouryAIOFanServer" task for example if you have it in your scheduled task list.

6. You should now be able to restart your computer and the software SHOULD run as normal. Just pray to whatever god of your choosing and you'll be fine.

Good luck!

Interesting. On my system installer didn't create this task after the first install in December when this feature was released. And when I tried to create it manually - it worked until the first update. After the first update this task launch "service" but it doesn't work. Although when I start exe manually - everything is ok. Difference: 7.5Mb ram consumption in "schedule task" mode (freeze?) vs ~24Mb in "manual start" mode. If anyone can upload exported xml with this task from working instance?
English is not my native language, so I'm sorry if I make some mistakes.

On my system installer doesn't create this task %) I don't know why, maybe antivirus or something else. I have checked it. And after manual creating of this task - nothing change, wallpaper doesn't work.
I have just asked to export original task from asus (do you see this item on the right panel of task scheduler?) and upload it to this topic.

Should be useful as my installer didn't create this task either and the old method to create a task with admin privilege on log on didn't work anymore for me ...

There have been some updates to the software since this happened. Might be worth a try to reinstall Armoury Crate completely.
