After updates and restart there was a message "PowerManager stopped working..." right after startup.
I have tried uninstalling it and re-installing it manually, but it still gives the same error using Version 2.50
I am running Vista x64

Same problem here,
Explorer hangs at start. I uninstalled the Power Management, and everything was ok.
The last update (2.5) has definately a problem.

Same here with my T60 Windows XP SP3. After Power Manager last update, I'm unable to start it. I get "A problem has occured with PWMUI.EXE [...]", also taskbar gauge cannot start with the same error.
But pressing Fn+F3 results with "power use slider" and it works.

I have tested the update of Power Manager and could not see nay issue. however, I have made this suing TVSU, where I have updated also all other apps/drivers were installed too.
I assume, that this might be the point, however this needs to be verified first.
Due to this situation I would advice following:
- delete Power Manager
- verify, whether you have also the latest version of following applicaitons installed to:
a) Power Management driver
b) Power Manager
c) Hotkey driver
d) System interface driver
<if there is a missmatch in any of the apps, then that might cause trouble>
It's importatnt, that you also install the apps/drivers in the same order as I described above.
Let me know, if this makes any change to your situation.

Still the same error
First I uninstalled PM Driver, PM, Hotkey and System Interface Driver. Rebooted and I have installed all these stuff in order you've pointed rebooting after each installation. I'm still unabla to run Power Manager.
Looking into Event Log I can see few erros related to PM:
Event source: Application Error
Event ID: 1000
Faulting application pwmui.exe, version 188.8.131.52, faulting module pwmuictl.dll, version 184.108.40.206, fault address 0x00018014.

Maybe it's .NET related somehow? I have uninstalled .NET 3.1 SP1 and still the same.
I have noticed, that Power Manager comes with Visual C++ Redistributable. I've had newer version (2008) already installed - isn't it a problem here?

in your post I don't quite understand the part of the error: ".NET Runtime 2.0 Error Reporting" when the latest version of Power Manager should more then less work only with .NET 3.0 .
Just for confirmation, do you have following .NET installed on your system? :
I assume yes, but I want to be sure as the error message seems pretty funny.
