<PowerMgr.exe> 0x0000007E The specified module could not be found.

2020-09-14, 11:55 AM

I have a new T490. Yesterday, an error message started appearing on startup: 

 

 

I looked for Powermgr.exe and found it in two places:

c:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\powermgr.inf_amd64_c17ccb223b68b743\PowerMgr.exe

c:\Windows\SysWOW64\Lenovo\PowerMgr\PowerMgr.exe

 

When I looked into this, it looks like the correct location is supposed to be the "c:\Windows\SysWOW64\Lenovo\PowerMgr\" folder. However, when the program is executed, that's when the error message appears. The error message does not appear when the program is executed from this folder: "c:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\powermgr.inf_amd64_c17ccb223b68b743\" 

 

Can anyone in this forum or from Lenovo please tell me (and others with the same issue) how do I correct the error, please?

 

TIA

We are aware of this problem.  Sorry for this trouble.  Although the below link is about a different error message, I believe the same steps can be used to solve it.  Could you please try it and let me know?

When can we expext to see an update to Power Manager to fix this issue? A manual fix is not very handy, when you eg. have this problem on 100's of Lenovo laptops.

This fix worked for me as well (I have a Carbon X1).

The driver that fixes this issue has not been released yet.  The fix is coming in version 10.0.132.0 which is scheduled to be released in November.

Then why not wait instead of releasing something that is flawed prematurely?

Error on ThinkPad T490 After Installing Lenovo Power Manager Update for Windows 10 v 1703 or Later

2020-10-24, 15:10 PM

On October 22, 2020, Lenovo Vantage installed Lenovo Power Manager (Windows 10 Version 1703 or Later) , v 10.0.128.0. My machine is a ThinkPad T490.

 

Now every time I boot, an error is thrown by PowerMgr.exe that reads, "0x0000007E The specified module could not be found." (Screenshot attached).

 

I cannot uninstall the update via Windows' Add and Remove Programs application.

 

Is anyone else experiencing this? Can I revert to a previous version?
