Windows 7: Logitech Gaming Software & Windows Firewall

Logitech Gaming Software & Windows Firewall

Hello,

I'm a new user to Windows 7 and I've managed to figure out everything except for one very annoying issue with Windows Fireall/Logitech Gaming Software. When I have Windows 7 firewall enabled, my Logitech G19 keyboard won't work. The media controls will work, but the keyboard itself won't work (I can't type & macro keys won't work). I can see & open the Logitech software via my notifications area & the software does start automatically each time I start Windows 7. I've gone into device manager already and made sure that it wasn't just the computer forcing the keyboard to sleep. I'm hoping someone has had this problem before.

I have LCore.exe added to "allow programs to communicate..." section.

I have the following inbound rules setup (Windows Firewall set these up itself & I have no outbound rules):

Code:
Logitech Gaming Framework		All	Yes	Allow	No	C:\program files\logitech gaming software\lcore.exe	Any	Any	UDP	Any	Any	Any	Any	
Logitech Gaming Framework		All	Yes	Allow	No	C:\program files\logitech gaming software\lcore.exe	Any	Any	TCP	Any	Any	Any	Any	
Logitech Gaming Framework		All	Yes	Allow	No	C:\program files\logitech gaming software\lcore.exe	Any	Any	TCP	Any	Any	Any	Any	
Logitech Gaming Software		All	Yes	Allow	No	C:\Program Files\Logitech Gaming Software\LCore.exe	Any	Local subnet	TCP	Any	Any	Any	Any	
Logitech Gaming Software		All	Yes	Allow	No	C:\Program Files\Logitech Gaming Software\LCore.exe	Any	Local subnet	UDP	54045	Any	Any	Any

It might be a Logitech app for the screen display. I recall that there was an app that checked news and things. If that can't access the 'net, perhaps it's causing your keyboard not to work. It's a long shot and it never happened with my G15, but what happens if you prevent that app from running?

Sorry, but that's the only thing that I can think of at the moment.

I will say that it is a very unusual problem.

LogiTech, G5 Gaming Mouse & Wave Keyboard
I've not found much information while conducting a search here on LogiTech Drivers. From what I understand LogiTech isn't creating drivers for Windows 7 Beta, should I just use the Vista versions despite getting a Compatiability Message?
