Yoga 910 Lenovo Settings encountered problem

settings.pngI just got Yoga 910 yesterday and desparately want to disable the fn keys and get back to F1-F12 keys but I can't run Lenovo Settings.  Initially when I ran Lenovo Settings, I didn't see the option to change the fn key.  So, I uninstalled it and then reinstalled it and now it's giving me an error "Settings has encountered a problem".  Restarted machine but still same issue.  I also get the same error when I run companion.

Re: Yoga 910 Lenovo Settings encountered problem

If I click on Update, it prompts me to download System Interface foundation.  That is a 241 MB file.  I'm afraid to run such a huge program.  What am I missing on my laptop?

There is a known performance issue in 3.159.0.

Which may cause slow to load.

You could try upgrade from windows store to 3.164.0.

And it should address this issue.

Lenovo Settings Has Encountered Problem

This is going on for weeks. Tried uninstalling to re-installing related apps/drivers and still get the "Settings Has Encountered a Problem" message.

 

Without Lenovo Settings working properly, the camera won't function (a related issue; every time I want to use the  ThinkPad camera I have to go into Lenovo Settings and change the Privacy mode--till now I've just been dealing with it).

Re: Lenovo Settings Has Encountered Problem

There is a hotkey to turn on/off camera, is this working?
In Lenovo Yoga system, utility.exe is required for some hotkey functions.
Please try to download it from companoin.
