Re: ThinkPad software for Windows 8

@Jason404

As you can see in this thread, there are only couple guys who manage to run Power Manager under Win8. Being a .NET developer(Power Manager is written using .NET framework), I decompiled code of this app and have saw couple unusual points, I think that is not a point of discussion. I manage to control some battery parameters using my own application.

I can tell that Power Manager has some issues only with his visible part. I mean it is can not start only due to interface. All another assemblies(as far as I can see) works correctly.

The only problem I have seen on my L420 was that I couldn't deinstall the WIN 7 Power Manager once it was installed in compatibility mode.

 

This made it rather useless.

The Lenovo Settings app is available in the Windows Store, but it won't let me install it.

Are you running Windows 8 as an upgrade from Windows 7? I understood this app only runs on machines with Windows 8 out of the box - hope I'm wrong!

LENOVO!!! http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/3078e868-a336-4a13-af40-8f37982cf591 

Look at that! Someone actually found the link in the app store!

 

If only there was a support link or email address linked from that page we could all flood!

 

This thread is months old, the settings app sits right there, but they won't let it install on my x220t because I upgraded to Win 8.

 

WHY, Lenovo? Why? When? Please just post "Never" so we can all flame for a bit and then move on? Just clicking "check for updates" every week in System Update and then running over to the App Store to search for "Lenovo" is getting really old...

 

Please post some sort of official reply?

That link is new as of about 2-3 days ago.  We are still working with Microsoft to make the Lenovo Settings app generally available to all users from the Windows Store.  It's not quite ready yet.  When it is, I'll post here.
