ThinkPad Tablet 2 - Version Conflict, Lenovo Settings and Location Awareness

2013-01-17, 17:16 PM

I can not seem to get my ThinkPad  Tablet 2 to update the location awareness driver. I have gone into the settings app multiple times and updated the driver, but immediately upon restart Windows informs me that there is a Version Conflict. Message states Warning: Version mismatch. Please update Lenovo Settings and Location Awareness to the latest versions.

 

Has anyone resolved this?

I had the same problem and it turned out that the cause was that there was a mixup between the Lenovo Settings app and the Lenovo Settings Dependency Package. Essentially, the LSDP acts as a "backbone" to the Lenovo Setting app.

 

The way I resolved this is:

 

1. Go to Control Panel > Programs and uninstall the LSDP

2. Go to the Store (or do it by clicking and holding the Lenovo Settings app tile) and uninstall the Lenovo Settings app

3. Restart the tablet

4. Download the LSDP from the TPT2 drivers page and install it

5. Restart the tablet

6. Install the Lenovo Settings app from the Store

 

This should resolve the issue with the version conflict.

Same problem here. ThinkPad Tablet 2 Win 8.

Lenovo System Update says there are no updates available.  

Lenovo Settings - Location Awareness app has information note saying "Please install the most up-to-date driver ..." even after update is installed by using the link.

Uninstall or change a program confirms Lenovo Settings Dependency Package has version 1.0.5.8. 

PLEASE ADVICE!

 

Many thanks/Bjorn

I too am experiencing the same issue on my ThinkPad Tablet 2, Win 8 Pro Machine Type 3679_27U.

 

I am running the most current version of the Lenovo Settings Dependency Package.

 

I did notice the download that is listed in the Location Awareness tab is different than when looking at the actual web site (settingsdependency.exe vs. gfsd08ww.exe)  Additionally, in Add / Remove Programs there is an app called Lenovo Dependency Package (note that there is another one called Lenovo Settings Dependency Package)  with version 1.05.0010.  I dont know if that shoudl be uninstalled or not.  I searched for that driver and could not find it.  I dont know if that is where the version mismatch is.

 

The does appear to be a bug since this is affecting multiple people.

Hi again, RMForlenza

 

I did some more research and found another fix that has worked for others. Location Awareness is part of a Lenovo Settings, a program. This program has a Metro app, and some users have found making sure this is updated fixes the conflict that causes the error in the first place. You can read about more in depth here on this thread.

 

Hope it helps,

Adam

@Adam (Gamloi7) - sorry, but I have the latest version of the Lenovo Settings Dependency Package (1.0.5.8), and I'm still getting the version mismatch message every time I reboot.

 

My thinkpad was built on the 6 January 2013, so it's only ever had the latest version of this Package. Perhaps the bug has been introduced into the latest version?

 

Any other suggestions?

 

Thanks.
