Default The CorsairGamingAudioConfig service failed to start

I have this in my Windows Event Viewer System log.

Any ideas what is wrong and how to fix it?

Clearly, it's about a file? that can't be found. No clue though where the file is supposed to be found nor why it isn't there.

Just noticed this myself. I went into services (Start->Run-> services.msc) and found the Corsair Gaming Audio Configuration Service.

Upon opening, noticed it references C:\Windows\System32\CorsairGamingAudioCfgService64.exe
Which doesn't exist in that path.

What I've done is set the startup type of the service to Disabled, so it doesn't attempt to start. I don't have any Corsair audio related HW on my system, so suspect it won't impact anything. I only have iCue installed for managing an AiO cooler, so wondering how this service got placed there.

That's a great tip, will do the same!

Feels quite weird indeed why a service is installed by Corsair for hardware that isn't installed but maybe someone from Corsair can shed some light on this?

I also love the description of said service...simply the letter 'C' and that's it. I guess it stands for Corsair?!

I don't believe it was intentional. It path error exists only on the 3.22.74 version and it was reported at release.

Default CorsairGamingAudioCfgService

I located it in:

Looking at the properties of the file, Details tab, Product Name is Corsair Gaming Headset Drivers.

So I imagine if you don't have a Corsair headset, you can disable this service without an issue.
