Hello, please try the latest update, version 3.6.6.

Please uninstall the previous version and do a fresh install of 3.6.6.

We have made many improvements with that version and it is working more smoothly. Let us know if this issue is still happening to you after updating. Sorry for the previous inconveniences, and thank you for your help.

    I have to restart computer, in order to load all saved settings. Will only load all saved settings, after restart. This has been an ongoing issue. Update before last seemed to correct this. Latest update brought back the problem.

    Hello guys,
    i am now on version 3.7.4 and CAM is still not holding my settings. Every restart from my system i have to rewrite my login and all my settings are gone.

    Version 3.6.6.
    Also, I'm asking you very much, do separate channel management, no matter which presets are installed. For example, to have the opportunity on the LED strips to set the music-bass mode, but at the same time on the fans, so that there is statics. In a word, give the possibility of a separate configuration of channels, so that the music mode on one channel, on the other, any other, please.

    DPC Latancy is growing very much, over 4000, it's problematic to play network action games with such a delay!!! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OCLdmYFTqk&t=23s)
    Please make optional backlight illumination and enable / disable reading of diagnostic data, speed of coolers, temperatures, etc.

    Well, purely my IMHO, absolutely all the presets in the Music section are completely useless, except for the BASS mode.

    Aaaaand spoke to soon again: After about 3 reboots, settings lost again. I will wait for 3.6.6 then.

    CAM 3.6.4. The checkboxes of channel 1 and channel 2 are not saved.

    For the quick launch of CAM, thanks a lot.

    As i said in my own thread: I completely removed 3.6.0, restarted, reinstalled 3.6.3.
    It still looses fan configuration on every restart.
    3.6.3 doesnt fix this.

  • Raven commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    einstellungen lassen sich bei mir mit 3.6.3 speichern aber einige bugs gibt es immernoch.
    fan speed zeigt keine korekten werte an, erst nachdem man den speed kurz auf 100% macht zeigt er richtig an.
    sprache lässt sich nicht ändern und die auswahl hängt nur bei englisch fest. andere sprachen lassen sich garnicht erst anklicken.
    minimierter start des programmes erfolgt nicht mit systemstart vom pc.

    Settings can be saved with 3.6.3 but some bugs are still there.
    fan speed shows no correct values, only after one makes the speed short on 100% he indicates correctly.
    Language can not be changed and the selection only depends on English. other languages can not be clicked first.
    minimized start of the program does not take place with system start of pc.

    Windows 10 LTSB 2016 64-bit (10.0, Build 14393) (14393.rs1_release.180625-1741), CAM 3.6.1-3.6.3 does not start in the graphical shell, only two processes hang in the task manager. There is no graphical shell !!! What just did not !!! Horror how much you have problems with the software!
    Only two processes CAM in the dispatcher hang and all. The graphical shell does not run through any "exe".
    3.5.9 version it's work.
    The icon on the control panel does not appear.

    Posted as separate topic as well, but as this one has most votes I thought I'd post it in here as well. This still works for 3.6.3 which is supposed to fix the saving issue, but doesn't.

    I found a way to sort out the saving issue. It looks like when you start the software it does a reset of the settings. When applying settings it updates the settings file, but when you close and open the application it resets the config instead of just reading the existing config.

    So follow the below and it will be slightly less annoying.

    - Open CAM
    - Apply settings
    - Close and exit CAM
    - Browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\NZXT\CAM
    - Find CAMSettings.sqlite
    - Right-click the file and go to properties
    - Tick the box for read-only
    - Click on OK (or Apply and then OK if that is your thing)
    - Accept security (UAC) warning
    - Now start CAM

    For some reason the minimize on start wont work, but at least it will save the actual settings and your fan profiles.
