Default iCue Software Immediately Closes After 1 Second


I recently bought a Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite and am trying to remap the sidepad buttons. I have installed iCue v3.31.81; however when I try and open it I see the window opens but then immediately closes. It is incredibly frustrating. I have tried:

- Running application as administrator
- PC Restart
- iCue uninstall and reinstall (I did this via "Uninstall Program" in Windows)
- Repairing iCue using "Apps and Features" -> Modify -> Repair

I have checked Event Viewer and it is registering an error:
Faulting application name: iCUE.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5f0c5b70
Faulting module name: Qt5Core.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x5e7dfb32

After reading some more of the threads regarding the new iCue updates it appears that v3.31.81.0 has been causing a lot of performance issues and high CPU usage. So I tried an older version (v24) and this has proved successful! At least on the first attempt; I am too scared to close it again in case I get the same problem....

You can get some older versions using the following thread. I hope it works for you!

Here's another one having constant iCUE crashes after updating to 3.31.81. Good thing I have a system image just before the update I can restore!

Same issue here. Updated to the latest version today and now the program is unusable. Crashes shortly after I start it even after a system restart.

I posted this in another thread, but am reposting it in case it helps.


Hey there. I had this same issue today. I deleted some unnecessary Asus programs, and it sent Icue into a tailspin where it would say "No Devices Detected", and abruptly close over and over.

I had uninstalled/reinstalled Icue multiple times, as well as Aura Sync.

What ended up fixing it was going in and completely deleting the "plug-in" folder under Icue.
Then go to "Add or Remove" programs in Windows. Select Icue, but don't uninstall it. Instead, hit the "Modify" button, and then choose the "Repair" option when it prompts you to Uninstall or Repair.

Worked for me. I'd been having trouble getting Icue to both change any lighting on my Asus Motherboard, and then later wouldn't even detect it. So, it fixed that problem as well!

Hope this helps!
