Iconia W500 Device Control for Windows 8.1

I upgrade my OS from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 but auto rotate screen is not working because the device control for Windows 8.1 is not available for download. I try to install device control for Windows 7 but the application is not opening, I try also to run device control in compatibily option but is not working. Can you please help me?

I have the same problem. Device Control crashes at startup and I had to install bluetooth driver in compatibilitty mode. At the moment the rotation screen function is unusable, we need support!

My W700 had same problem.

I just deleted the "Intel Sensor Solution" device and driver, then auto-roatate work again after scan the devices.

maybe you can try to delete the devices and drivers under the sensors

Solution - works so far.

 

Removed the current software: G Sensor Bosch 1.0.0.5, Auyto Screen Rotation Blocker, Device Control 1.01.3002. Did a restart after each.

 

Went into Device Manager - Display Adapter - Roll Back Driver. This rolled back the driver to 9/27/12 version 9.2.0.0. Restart

 

Installed software:  G Sensor Bosch 1.0.0.5, Auyto Screen Rotation Blocker, Device Control 1.01.3002 (in that order, restart after each)

 

RESULT: I now have auto-rotate working, Device Control is working.

 

Good luck.

Spoke too soon!

 

Windows Update kicks in and downloads and installs the "new improved" driver and the problem returns.

 

So new attempt;

 

1) Go to Windows Update - Change settings - Never check for updates

 

2) Remove the current software: G Sensor Bosch 1.0.0.5, Auto Screen Rotation Blocker, Device Control 1.01.3002. Did a restart after each.

 

3) Go to Device Manager - Display Adapter - Roll Back Driver. This rolled back the driver to 9/27/12 version 9.2.0.0. Restart

 

4) Install software:  G Sensor Bosch 1.0.0.5, Auto Screen Rotation Blocker, Device Control 1.01.3002 (in that order, restart after each)

 

5) Back to Windows Update - Check for updates - HIDE the AMD update - Reset Windows Update settings

 

RESULT: I now have auto-rotate working, Device Control is working.

----solution for me for my W510----

 

i dont know what happened but i will tell you what i did last:

 

i have the european version of Windows 8.1 N(without Media Feature Pack)

 

  1. reinstalled microsoft silverlight.
  2. search for update ---> silverlight update available!---> installed!
  3. reboot
  4. installed "Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 8.1" from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40744
  5. reboot
  6. search again for updates---> new updates available ---> installed
  7. reboot!

now camera, autorotation, and all apps work for me. i think there is a cross connection between the media features and camera....

 

best regards
