The same Actions and problems for me also.

👆 Got it working, just had to disable my VPN.

I have a problem because when I want to upgrade ArmouryCrate.UserExperienceImprovement to version, UnifyDGDII to version and VGADll to version I get an error 0x80072EE2
I have Norton internet security firewall and everything is unblocked even I turned everything off permanently and then services not to turn on and it did nothing.

I'm having the same issue, and I don't have any VPNs or firewalls, other than the built in Windows firewall and whatever's on my modem/router.

Tried to run armory crate updater, temporarily disabled firewall after trying a few times and still get this error on trying to run the update:


Submiting issue to the form after the post here.

Until a while ago it worked and synchronized my PC's RGBs perfectly, but after updating to the latest version it simply crashes the PC and doesn't come back.

When it freezes, none of the keyboard commands and physical power on and reset buttons work, they only come back when I turn off the source.
I already formatted the PC, installed the most current version of win11 and Armory Crate, updated the motherboard BIOS and it didn't work...

Level 11

same problem here.


All suggestions for whitelisting the Windows Defender Firewall using Asus Updater etc. were unsuccessful.
Tried with firewall disabled too. Nothing works.
There is a stable internet connection, otherwise Armoury Crate would not find the update.

The update cannot be installed even though there is a stable internet connection. There's never been anything like this before.

But Asus really screwed something up.

I will not uninstall ArmoryCrate to get the update and fix this error, which is obviously Asus' fault.


The latest Armory Crate updates were rolled out via the Windows Store. And now they come back directly through the program?

Someone should understand that. Especially since Armory Crate can no longer be found in the Windows Store.
I think the problem is that we can't update it because it was originally updated via the Windows Store and now directly from the program.

Cant update unifydgdll Whining about no internet connection. Fix please Asus ROG!


And yes i made exception to Firewall. Just doesnt work. There is a thread about this on reddit also.

Same here, update of "UnifyDGDLL" fails every time.  Added an exception (still same error), then completely disabled firewall (still same issue).   Either the update client is looking for something that doesn't exist, or there is a problem with the ASUS distribution point.
