Starting my pc today the Temperature setting in the lighting effects no longer work. I'm on iCue 3. I restarted a few times, tried uninstalling to switch to icue 4 (yay my scmitar isnt supported but my K95 is /s) before reinstalling to icue 3. No dice, everything else seems works.

As a work around  I got it working by going into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Corsair\CORSAIR iCUE Software" and starting "Corsair.Service.CpuIdRemote64.exe"

They must've changed something somewhere so that doesn't start when the pc does. Gonna be annoying to start this by hand every time you restart the computer though.

Cant confirm but I think this may be related to the recent windows update as this issue started immediately after updating for me. The lighting also works properly while the pc is locked, but logging in disables the lighting again. 

 

trued2s solution does work for me as well as an interim work around.

Same issue here, trued2, thanks for finding the workaround.. I then tried to put the "Corsair.Service.CpuIdRemote64.exe" to the StartUp folder but its not working .. I still have to run it by hand in order to work😞 Anybody have some idea how to fix it for good?

i was not aware icue 4 even existed. I was still running icue 3, which had this issue out of the blue the other day. I had checked for updates multiple times since then thru the icue3 settings - not sure why they didn't communicate the end of support for icue 3, and encourage a transition to icue 4 a bit better to their users...

 

it's working again on icue 4, without having to manually launch the service so that's cool.

Thanks to True2 for the temp fix on this issue!  I have my Windows PC automatically load this file now at startup using Windows Task Scheduler.  So now my PC loads/runs the file "C:\Program Files (x86)\Corsair\CORSAIR iCUE\Corsair.Service.CpuIdRemote64.exe" at system startup. 

NOTES on how to do this and settings needed:

Type "Task Scheduler" into Windows search or run from Control Panel and create a Basic Task to Run a Program using the file path shown above and as shown in True2's post.

To make loading successful I had to enable "Run with highest privileges" AND also edit the run "Trigger" inserting a 30-second delay before running the program which was needed on my system.  See below for where to set those options within Task Scheduler.  

The ONLY thing is after startup you have to manually close the program window that's left open, just like you do when running the program manually

It will be easier to update the program to a version with valid certificates, as noted in the previously linked thread.

Appreciate the reply and link!  I rather not run Beta software that has software in OS with direct access to my CPU/motherboard.  I think there could be more changed in the newer software other than certificates and would rather wait for the official release version to come out.  Using task scheduler really is very easy to automatically load the file at startup needed to activate communication of my CPU/Motherboard temps into IQue and continues to run official release version of the software.  And when the official release version is approved I will simply delete that task.  My career was in developing cutting edge services and hardware for 3D modeling and animation, GIS and CAD stuff in civil engineering I became super careful about what I run on my PCs, never run beta stuff if I can help it, especially my gaming rig.  So that's just me being careful but again thanks for the information, it was very helpful to know that Corsair is working on this issue.

I seriously doubt they did anything but update the certificates since CUE development ended almost a year ago. I think what was in question was the ability to validate the build in between Christmas and New Years and CES. I know I wasn’t at work that week. Anyway, completely your call but I wanted to make sure it was known as an option.
