ASUS Windows Dynamic Lighting Plug-in 2.0.0.0 breaks Aura Sync and the only way to keep it functional is to avoid installing it. It has nothing to do with how I set Dynamic Lighting from Windows. Did about 5-6 clean AC installs each time with different settings, like:

  • Dynamic lighting turned OFF for all devices (all my Logitech peripherals show up there and work as intended)
  • Dynamic lighting turned ON only for one device.
  • DL turned ON with Armory Crate on top of the priority list

No matter what I set in Windows, AC will lose Aura Sync once I install Windows Dynamic Lighting Plug-in 2.0.0.0

I also tried removing C:\Program Files (x86)\LightingService\LastProfile.xml and rebooting so it gets recreated. With that DL plugin installed, this file has 509KB. Without it (and working) it only has 44KB. Tried saving and overwriting with no luck either. LightingService will keep crashing.

 

Spoiler
Faulting application name: LightingService.exe, version: 3.7.33.0, time stamp: 0x65695003
Faulting module name: LightingService.exe, version: 3.7.33.0, time stamp: 0x65695003
Exception code: 0xc0000409
Fault offset: 0x00316d3f

 

The only available "fix" is to manually update/install all the other updates/modules without touching the "Update All" button to avoid installing that buggy Dynamic Lighting plugin

Stupid question...how could Logitech implement a fully working integration with Windows DL ? Another stupid question...how can you keep releasing updates on such a buggy software (since day one) and not hire a team to write a new one from scratch?

Seems like a stupid idea right now to migrate all my peripherals from Logitech to Asus ...

Just another sad customer with 90% of your available ecosystem already bought...

Of course I did, however, I decided to spend another 2 hours debugging this. I'm not sure how much the log could help but in the end I concluded this:

- Installing ASUS Windows Dynamic Lighting Plug-in 2.0.0.0 adds a folder in C:\Program Files\ASUS named AacAmbientHal - LightingService won't crash as long as ArmoryCrateService is stopped. Starting AC crashes LS
- Per-device lighting still works even if Aura Sync was not detecting ANY device
- regenerating LastProfile.xml results in a huge (10 times larger) file after installing this WDL plugin. Using the old (working) xml still didn't help.

However, I managed to get a "fix" if you could call it that way...
These are the steps I took:

  • backup C:\Program Files\ASUS, C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS and C:\Program Files (x86)\LightingService
  • install ASUS Windows Dynamic Lighting Plug-in 2.0.0.0
  • manually stop all related services (ArmoryCrate, LightingService, all AAC and HAL services etc)
  • overwrite all 3 folders with previous files
  • delete C:\Program Files (x86)\LightingService\LastProfile.xml
  • reboot

AuraSync is working now, WDL plugin appears as installed (not sore if it does anything but at least I got rid of the install/update notification). There's no device detected through WDL plugin (Yes, followed steps in FAQ) but at this point I don't care so much.
I know this isn't a proper way to deal with it but...

Uploaded log and filled in the form.

After the game takes control of lighting, opening AC makes the game to lose control over it and it fails to regain it. While AC was recording this log, game failed to gain control completely.

EDIT: I got it wrong. It was the scenario profile that was overriding it. So if the game that controls the lighting has a scenario profile in AC, the game will lose the control over it and fail to regain it.

Unable to control RGB of G10DK case using Armoury Crate.  Effect settings on aura sync tab do nothing.  Settings on system lighting tab do not take effect unless aura sync is enabled then disabled.

After updated to ver 5.7.9.0., using the wired mouse (ROG Keris Wireless) while gaming or just watching youtube, occasionally stop working for 1s, maybe freeze,  then, after 10s, all the lights flickers on all other devices like is reconnecting or changing the input type, but with delay effect. At the moment of freeze only the mouse is not working, everything else is in order (keyboard, display, everything is working, no lags or freeze of the screen). USB device for wireless connection is not connected, and there is no bluetooth option connectivity.

Later update from my previous post (https://rog-forum.asus.com/t5/armoury-crate/armoury-crate-v5-7-6-0-amp-v5-7-9-0-aura-creator-v3-7-6-...)

Ok so today I updated ASUS Windows Dynamic Lighting Plug-in from 2.0.0.0 to 2.7.0.0.
Aura Sync still works even if it doesn't seem to be able to control other non-Asus devices. I just ordered ROG mouse+keyboard+headsets+mouse pad so I won't care about Windows Dynamic Lighting anymore.

THANK YOU -- I updated this today and the lightingservice.exe handle leak appears to be fixed. 

I still want to express my displeasure with the inability to "roll-back" to a previous version when stuff like this happens.  This problem caused me (and others) significant interruption and time loss, with no way to fix it but wait WEEKS for an update.   I wish that could be addressed.

Nevertheless, thank you for the update, it seems to be working great.
