I have recently added a Claymore II to my setup and honestly the way it was reviewed it seemed as though AC had sorted its problems out if you take the reviewers at their word. So I dove in - but after pretty much every update Claymore II just defaults back to rainbow and defaults are lost. After today's update to HAL and my Strix GPU AC no longer loads, I get to the point where the spinner shows up then it quits.
I'd love to tell you what version the components installed are for AC, but due to crashing constantly I can only say AC shows in WIndows (11) as 126.96.36.199
Honestly - I thought AC would be stable enough - I'm running a Strix Z370-G, Strix OC 3080, and the Claymore II...and it feels that Logitech G-Hub is WAY more stable. AC has always been problematic. There is NO WAY a Windows reinstall should be the solution to these issues - that just reeks of bad software. If that's the only long term solution to this never ending wait and see if it works - you've lost a customer with a bunch of your stuff...not to mention Z13 flow as well!
Sorry to hear you're having issues. I have quite a few ROG devices connected and Armoury Crate is working well.
Since Armoury Crate is not loading for you, I'll suggest to use the Armoury Crate uninstall tool and reinstall.
In the link below select your operating system, click "Show all" in blue, the uninstall tool is the third download.
Once uninstalled, reboot.
Then install Armoury Crate version 188.8.131.52, head to the update center and check for updates for your devices.
How does it go after uninstalling and reinstalling Armoury Crate?
Armoury Crate will update to 184.108.40.206
