You should be able to use Command Center without installation & hacks.


Model: Alienware Area-51 R2

Notes:
- The Command Center was modified to contain only the AlienFX setting.
- All predefined AlienFX themes were removed to avoid possible incompatible theme error.
- Fixes Realtek Audio driver issues on Gigabyte Aorus Pro WiFi Motherboard.
- ThermalController.exe was modified to do nothing in order to prevent possible errors.

Use AWCC 4.8.25.0_A00 without installation:
1. Download image file via this link.
2. Mount it in explorer or copy content to your preferred folder.
3. Run CommandCenter.exe to launch Command Center.

'no instance of an object' error is usually because the double-ended USB2.0 cable isn't plugged into the motherboard USB2.0 header (see JUSB3 / JUSB4, USB2.0 headers are almost always at the bottom edge of a motherboard)

&/or the cable isn't plugged into the FIO board's USB2.0 header (see USB1, black header) … also, the FIO board needs 4pin Molex power

@Domiratus If you're getting this error then either the USB device
is not properly connected or the bios setting is in a state which prevents
it from being detected.

Since your motherboard is MSI and should be more compatible,
it is most-likely a USB connection issue.

But I'll just go on with extra info in case it helps anyone.

NB: These are some checks I performed when having AlienFX detection issues
after upgrading Area-51 R2 mobo to Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi. I hope
some of them help in identifying your problem.

1. Go to the CommandCenter.exe folder and find the file named
AlienwareAlienFXTester.exe. Run it to see if the USB device is
detected. If Current Version under "Board Information" is listed
then the device is detected.

2. Go to device manager and check if you have a device listed with
a warning under Universal Serial Bus controllers.

If there are no warnings, check from Windows 10
settings->Bluetooth & other devices to see if there is
a device listed as A-51 under "Other devices".

In my case, when the device is properly connected and there are no
warnings, I can also confirm the device is connected by checking
the properties of the devices listed as USB Input Device in Device
Manager under "Human Interface Devices". One of the devices is
the A-51 device. In properties, under Details tab, look at the
"Bus reported device description" value.

3. If you are sure the usb device is properly connected, try enabling ERP Ready
in your BIOS settings. With ERP turned off for Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro WiFi,
even when the usb is properly connected, there's a detection problem and
AlienFX throws that error. So I have ERP on in my case to get AlienFX working.


Until it's confirmed the device is actually detected and ready,
I wouldn't worry too much about Command Center.
