I updated the laptop’s (school owned) activinspire software as well as the activdriver. I initially was having a problem where my USB (for the activslate and activexpressions 2) was not properly working. My computer recognized the slate but kept saying that my voting devices were connected. I do know that they were registered on the USB because it was working on my school desktop as well as my personal laptop. I figured it was a driver issue so I deleted the activdriver and redownloaded it. During the download process, at the end, it said that the activcontrol was not reached. I have no clue what to do from here. I can use activinspire but I have no icon in my task bar showing my promethean board (yes, everything is connected properly). When I click on the icon ‘device driver’ in my Window’s task bar, it shows that the “Promethean USB 2.4 GHz Hubdriver” is unplugged but everything is plugged in as normal (and it works on my personal laptop). I can project but I have no option of calibrating the board or writing on it or using the slate to write on my flipchart.
When computer restarts, this is the message: ‘api-ms-win-crt-runtime-[1-1-0.dll’ is missing.

The error message that you are getting is caused by a missing windows update. This update can be found here:https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/2999226
Once this is installed you should try uninstalling then reinstalling the ActivDriver.
If you continue to have issues connecting to any of your wireless devices, then we would advise checking if your ActivHub requires a firmware update.
If we can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to get back in touch.Kind Regards,PaulPromethean Technical Support

So I update (laptop desperately needed it). Then I reinstalled the Activdriver and got the same exact message as posted above.
When uninstalling, I go to control panel, uninstall, ActivDriver. Is there anything else I should search for to make sure I uninstall all unnecessary components?

I have exact same Issues on two laptops. Windows 7 Pro SP1. Error Starting the Service Active Control – logged on as Administrator. Ran with Right Click as Admin . I also get an error when installing about a mouse and child kill (no idea) Installing latest Active Driver 64-Bit. Then after re-boot I get the api-ms-win-crt-runtime-I1-1-0.dll is missing error. As Older Active Driver will not install as Digitally signed. If The Windows Update does not resolve any other ideas?

Let’s manually remove the current driver or any existing driver you may have so we can make sure there is no conflict, please follow the guide below to manually remove the driver:
Before you install the new driver please reboot machine and ensure the Activboard is not connected.
Install the new driver, reboot again and then connect the ActivBoard.
Please let us know if the issue persists.

Did everything that was listed in the above link.
Searched under each program file, processes, & in windows 32 folder & deleted as needed.
I then dumped the recycle bin and rebooted. I redownloaded the actvdriver and got the same exact message (‘error starting service activ control’) 🙁

All is now fixed. My laptop was in desperate need of being updated (previous teacher turned off reminders). Once al,l updates for Windows and Microsoft were installed, ActivManager/Control finally worked.
