Power Manager not working after last update 2.50

2009-07-14, 14:01 PM

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.

 

System : T60  (8744-5bu)

 

OS : Vista 32

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.

Had the same problem with draining batery during the hybernation + overheating cpu. I uninstalled TVT PM, delete the directories in programs files, made sure using autorun from systernals, there wasn't anything left form TVT PM in the start in mode of the PC, cleaned the prefetch directory in windows, cleaned the hard disk with the standard ms tools in HDD properties, rebooted the PC, launched the TVT SUpdate which fetched the TVT PM 2.5, installed it and the system seems tamed up to now with the draining remaining an issue, but there is a stupid work around to have a real hybernate that does not drain the batery : disconnect the pc prior setting it to hybernate and will not drain the battery. Hope that will help - regards

Hi,

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
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-4GXPEG
 b) Power Manager
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-70602
 c) Hotkey driver
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-68000
 d) System interface driver
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-67228

<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
Description:
Faulting application pwmui.exe, version 1.0.0.0, faulting module pwmuictl.dll, version 1.0.0.0, fault address 0x00018014.


Event source:    .NET Runtime 2.0 Error Reporting
Event ID:    1000
Description:
Faulting application pwmui.exe, version 1.0.0.0, stamp 49e6b76e, faulting module pwmuictl.dll, version 1.0.0.0, stamp 49e6b767, debug? 0, 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?

 

 

T60 model 2007-77G with Windows XP SP3.

Hi,

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? :
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=10CC340B-F857-4A14-83F5-25634C3BF043&displaylang=en

I assume yes, but I want to be sure as the error message seems pretty funny.

Yes, I have .NET 3.0 SP1 installed. But - to be sure - I'll try to reinstall it.
