CAM failing to log in on start-up
When I boot up my PC in the past, CAM would boot up and log in automatically - I'd hear the fans spin up while logging in, then once logged in, they'd adjust to the settings that are saved. As far as I was aware, it would log in with Google account.
However, recently, the CAM software will boot up, spin up the fans, then say 'Couldn't authenticate the user'. But when I then manually click on the 'Google' button, it logs in fine.
Just in case it was a problem on Google's end for some reason, I tried logging in with my NZXT account. In one instance I received an error or 'Could not communicate with any node in cluster' (or something similar) then the other instance it said 'Invalid Password'. I then proceeded to change my password. Once changed, tried logging in again - same error - 'Invalid Password'.
On top of this, almost every time I do log in, I have to agree to some sort of usage policy. I've started having these issues since updating to CAM v3.7.8.
It's been an issue for more than half a year now.
Extremely annoying - where's the "completely rewritten login" that had been promised? :-/

Same here, this just started, used to work fine. Is this a problem with moving to 3.7.8? If so NZXT, then put us back on prior version until you get this figured out.
I have the same issue it’s annoying and I’m about to just stop using my NZXT case and get me something else like a cougar or phanteks.
Same. Happens every time I boot. Beyond annoying.
"We're currently working on a full rewrite of our login flow to improve its stability and prevent errors like this in the future. Thanks for your patience!"
Not sure if anyone has tried this, but I just went back to basics and uninstalled, and reinstalled. This immediately fixed the 'any node in cluster' error, hope this might help someone else.
Same here ...very annoying !
It's been nearly 3 months now and this is still a very common problem. Is this representative of NZXT as a brand? I don't own any of their products currently but was considering using mostly NZXT parts on my next build, and if this is par-for-the-course then I certainly won't be doing that.
Please fix this

I have the exact same problem. The login window appears every time the computer boots. Very annoying, I do not even understand why a login is necessary for such a software.

Same here, pretty sure it was all done automatically in older versions.
It's a background service I want to set up once and mostly forget about.
Other similar apps I have politely sit in the system tray not bothering me (afterburner, aida, logitech gaming soft etc.).
