Dear Lenovo Community,
I've recently purchased an Thinkpad T400. I did a clean install and put Windows Server 2008 64-bit OS on the computer. I installed the Power Manager and got an application error.
I download the install from this url:
The application was installed to the program files(x86) folder. Please advise.
Below is the error log.

The following could be usefull.
The ThinkPad T400 and W500 can be ordered with “switchable” graphics.
The only way to make the switch is to install the Power Management
Utility. Since this utility uses the .NET frameworks, care must be
taken to install the Lenovo drivers and software in the correct order,
or at least you need to make sure all of the prerequisites are
installed unless you want to see the Power Management utility appcrash. Since Windows Server 2008 does not have those prereqs installed by default, you will need to do that. It’s covered in a couple of minutes in the instructions below.
Please report back.
P.S.: I'm using 32-bit version of WS2008. Installing .net 3.0 solved the problem.

Have you installed hyper-v? After installation you lost the powermanagement.
