Re: Power Manager for Windows 10?

2016-01-21, 18:59 PM

This thread goes too long. But I like the Power threshold setting of the original Lenovo power manager so that I can set a start charging level and a stop charging level for the battery. Now I have the Lenovo power manager installed, but Windows 10 just does not allow me to open the Lenovo power manager. Really want Microsoft to allow the app to open, or Microsoft should develop their own function of setting charging thresholds!!!

It's not even a driver issue, it's mostly down to a chip on the battery. The actual drivers are mostly already working, with the settings depdency package and the power manager driver you can set it manually in the registry.

 

They just need to bugfix the random loss of settings that people have doing that, and provide a simple app to change it. Or build it into the simple win10 apps they do provide that are 99% useless at the moment..

Re: Power Manager for Windows 10?

Hi, I found a solution to install PM on my Thinkpad R61 with Windows 10 Pro, solving the compatibility issue.

 

Just follow the instructions on this website (quote below):

https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/39anbv/windows_10_deciding_what_i_can_and_cannot_run/

 

The blocking mechanism is a so-called hard block and is applied by the Program Compatibility Assistant.

The following workaround fixed it for me:

  • From the start menu, run the Compatibility Administrator, either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version depending on your application
  • In the left-hand pane under System Database (32/64-bit) -> Applications, look for the corresponding application (if you can't find a good match, you can look it up in the Event Viewer, see below)
  • In the large pane on the right-hand side there should be an entry AppHelp - HARDBLOCK
  • Right-click the exe-file with the hard block and select Disable entry

Now you should be good to go. In my case I additionally had to set the program to run in Windows 7 compatibility mode.


  • Open the Event Viewer eventvwr.msc
  • In the left-hand pane, navigate to Application and Services Logs-> Microsoft -> Windows ->Application Experience -> Program Telemetry
  • In the large middle pane, double click on the event with a timestamp that matches the blocked message. In the window that opens, there should be passage of text like

Compatibility fix applied to C:\DRIVERS\VISTA\PWRMGRV\Setup.exe.

Fix information: Lenovo Power Manager, {c2c0a0a8-ec3a-4f72-b657-5c39de76c771}, 0x10161.

  • The boldfaced part is what the application is called in the Compatibility Administrator

 

I hope it will help you.

Using X1 Carbon gen 3 and windows 10x64 with all patches

 

I tried Power.Manager.6.68.8 and 6.67.5 in win7 compatibility mode, and find that the treshold setting no longer works in between system reboots.  I have go back into power manager and click on ok after a reboot to stop it from charging and then it honors the threshold settings.

 

I changed the registry settings (all 4) and it makes no difference.

 

What am I doing wrong?  I know some of you got this working even works after a reboot.

"Re: Power Manager for Windows 10? [ New ]

 

I found a tool writtne by german developer (but he shut down his site - thinkutils.de). However i saved this tool and uploaded on the speedyshare

 

http://www.speedyshare.com/2fqhC/PM-2.0.1.zip

 

In Windows 8.1 with everythig updated it works like a charm. However, can you chceck if it's working with Windows 10 "

 

In win10x64, the interface to change the threshold doesnt even show up.  I installed the newest Lenovo Power Management Driver and Lenovo Settings Dependency Package

Re: Power Manager for Windows 10?

2016-03-13, 14:26 PM

Doing a fresh install of windows 10 Pro (not the lenovo win 10 recovery disc/usb), and after it patches to version 1511 (came out in december and will auto patch to this), I ran the following Lenovo software:

 

adksetup ; disable windows' incompatibility for lenovo power manager (instructions are in posts above you)

n1cku27w ; power management driver 1.67.10.20

n1au408w ; power manager 6.68.8

 

After a reboot you can change the thresholds and the settings will keep after multiple reboots.  If you wish to fully charge you select the first option then change back to threshold option afterwards.  This only works after you select and use the threshold options twice (first time doesnt save for some reason).

 

I havent tested this using the Lenovo win 10 recovery but in theory should work. 

I have the X1 Carbon Gen 3 (BT) in case you're wondering.

Are you sure you need to install the power manager 6.68.8? I found it is not supported in Windows 10 and is older than the other power management drive you gave...

Win 10 will auto install the most recent driver for recharging the battery, but this driver will ignore power manager's threshold settings most of the time.  Installing the older version of the driver works.
