You must remove old software, profiles, and reboot before installing this.

Currently the only way to get the Link software to properly work under Windows 8.1 is through a registry hack or other extraneous measures: Windows 8.1 temporary workaround - The Corsair Support Forums (I did the registry hack).

Can confirm this is now natively working under Windows 8.1. Can't speak about 7 as this is now a Win 8.1 system, but if you've had issues in the past with the older version you might give this a try. Plus, it now reads other system fans and temps as well; It's been expanded to give more info

BTW - before updating to this version, I had to remember to revert my registry changes back to their original state to see if this software really is working under Win 8.1. In short... make sure you undo your changes to get the older version working before installing the new update.
