Searching for information on this issue for the Yoga c930 has inexorably led me to this topic! I was willing to try the solution on this machine but Keyboard_Core.dll does not exist anywhere. I do have Vantage and the toolbar installed and I can toggle the backlight via the toolbar so obviously the capability is there, somehow, it's maybe just a different version of Vantage? Any ideas appreciated.

Any updates on an ETA for the next version? It looks like most of the major issues have been fixed, this is a great project! Plan to use again once the bug preventing restart/shutdown is resolved.

Sorry, but it looks like this version is not working better, at least on my T480.
For instance: I can change the settings from the GUI app, though whenever I try to save them, it's not working, the old values remain. In addition, when I boot the laptop, the keywoard backlight stays off, even if defined properly in the defaulted settings.
I think I'm done here with this tuning attempt. I'll keep using this Thinkpad with the standard package that doesn't offer a clever backlight management for the keyboard. Not great but it will do.
Many thanks to all the contributors, a substantial work has been achieved here.

Thanks a lot, that works on my T495!
You (or @JooJooBee666) might do other users a huge favour to provide an updated installer including these fixes ;-)
Concerning the annoying OSD issue: The current version of Lenovo Vantage seems to run without tposd.exe. There is however a service called TPHKLOAD but killing it also shuts off other functionalities like the mic mute key.
I got rid of the OSD notifications by following this method using the windows advanced screen settings (not exaclty as depicted but it's self explaining):
BTW: If some Lenovo Mod might be reading this thread: Please (!!!) tell this whole backlight thing to the Vantage App developers.I'm glad some geeks found a way but I expect such basic features to be there out of the box!
