Windows 7: forteManager driver install

Just curious, Why do you need Forte manager?

It isn't a driver. Its just a app to change the color settings, rather than using the touch screen controls on the monitor. It can also be a bit buggy in Win7 x64, even w/compatability mode.


If you want the Driver/Color profiles:
Open Device Manager and expand Monitor section
R/click the LG monitor & Choose update Driver
Choose Let Me choose
And guide it to the driver folder on the CD that came with the monitor.

It will instal just the driver and color profiles.

im aware its an app, and thats why i would like to use it.
updating it through device manager doesn't work.
the reason why i want to use the app is because its easier to change settings, plus i haven't found any option in my screen menu to change from Digital to HD.

Its not a menu option. Just press the Source button to switch between modes.

Ive got the Forte manager to work, by running in the instal in compatabiliy mode for Vista SP2, 7 run as admin. As well as the app itself.

Youll be promted by it every boot as well.

I just find it easier to instal driver & color profile only. Good luck

lol, the program is successfully installed and i can run it, but i cant select any options and no details come up about my monitor, the program like.. doesnt recognize i have a monitor.
dont worry, i guess i have to get used to the annoying and barely visible touchscreen buttons on my computer.
thanx anyways.

fM v. 2.8 v. 3.xx

@James: I had no difficulty with fM 3.xx with XP SP3, however there is nothing that I tried that enables me to run v. 3.xx on Win7x64 (launches but all of the options are grayed out as you experienced). But, I am able to run v. 2.8 on Win7x64. The GUI is a bit different but the app is, essentially, the same. Have you tried it?

The various fM versions are found here.

Update: v. 3.18 now working on m x64 installation.

I spent 12 hours trying to get this to work, on my Windows 7/64 bit, followed all the instructions here and still no go. I tried downloading 2.8 but the zip file is empty! HUH? Is there anywhere else I can download it?
