Windows 7: Asus Utility won't run

Asus Utility won't run

Two of my fans are running at 50%.
Although my case is running cool ( 32 to 35) and running Intel Burn Test and under full load it was 80 degrees, I would still like to adjust fan control.

I have the Asus P8z77-v and downloaded the utility for Fanxpert 2 which allows for control of fans.

The program was downloaded from Asus site, but will not run.

Thanks for any advice.
Paul

Hi,

From the attached image, it looks like the exe and associated files are still wrapped up within the .zip file. Extract the files to their own folder, then try and run setup.

Regards,

There doesn't seem to be a way to extract- no choice on right click.

Just highlight all the files within the .zip, then drag them into a new folder.

Hey Golden,

After extracting and trying to launch the program, it would immediately crash.
Today, I looked In Properties and it was set under compatibility to run in XP mode.

I changed that to Windows 7 and all is good.
