Lenovo Settings win8 metro app

2013-02-17, 7:58 AM

Has anyone ever gotten this to work completely? Ever since I've installed it it's never worked properly. The mobile hotspot and location awareness options work, but when I try to access the power, camera or audio options I just get a blank screen and the app freezes.

 

I've seen several updates to the Lenovo Settings app and the settings prereq application that must be installed before using it since getting my W530 2 months ago, each time hoping the new version resolves this problem.

 

Any ideas?

Hey there dajaco,

 

I've seen some issues resolved with the Lenovo Settings App and it's Dependency Package by uninstalling both, rebooting the machine, and reinstalling. To do this, you will have to uninstall the Dependency Package from the Programs and Features in your Control Panel. Once both of these are uninstalled:

 

1) Download and Install - Lenovo Power Management Driver for Windows 8

2) Download and Install - Lenovo Settings Dependency Package

3) Download and Install - Lenovo Settings App

4) Reboot

 

I hope this helps.

I have an x220 ThinkPad which I just upgraded to Windows 8. 

 

When I got to download the Lenovo Settings app is says that "this app is not avalible for your pc." I am using this link: http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/3078e868-a336-4a13-af40-8f37982cf591

 

I have installed the correct dependency drivers and power drivers. Do you know waht the problem is?

 

Thanks...

Yes. Since you have upgraded it by yourself, not having it preinstalled by Lenovo, you cannot use it due to some rules regarding Windows store.

 

We're all waiting...

Thanks, but the problem here is when you do a fresh W8 install. It won't open in the store.

 

There two apps, one is Lenovo settings and other is Lenovo Support:

Correct, this was the intent of my original posting.

 

When you open that link in the Windows Store, it tells you that "This app is not avalible for your PC."

 

I have x220 ThinkPad i5 upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 8 Pro.

This is a problem of trying to use the metro app outside of the factory preload and we simply don't have any solution yet.  Sorry to bring you this bad news.
