  1. I downloaded the API but when I select Mad Catz Strike 7 from the LCD tab and check the box to activate Mad Catz Venom LCD it just says the following.


    Error: Cannot find DLL (Strike7API.dll)


    I​​ put the Strike7API.dll inside the following folder, wich was the default installtion folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\FinalWire\AIDA64 Extreme​


    I've also downloaded the drivers and software for the keyboard, only had Windows 8 x64 drivers and software but they installed without any error. Could that be it or is there something else I've forgot to do to enable Aida64​ to write to the LCD?

  2. I noticed one thing, not sure if its related to your software or not though, but if I set the update frequence to 500ms and display a clock on the LCD it behaves kind of odd, the seconds sometimes change very fast after another change and sometimes it takes slightly longer than a second. I dont think the 500ms frequence really is 500ms, setting this to 1000ms makes it behave like normal.

  3. Create an app that uploads computer statistics, temperatures, information, and some controls to Android.

    It would be nice to be able to monitor my computer even when I am not right next to it.


    Sometimes especially when I am doing long term stability testing I would like to know my temps and other information with out having to be right next to it. That way I can still monitor and get alerts if, say, I pushed it too far.


    I would love this, cause then I could use an old phone sitting infront of me on a stand and let it display the Aida64 information.

    Best would be if it can send it directly over WiFi from the computer to the phone. Perhaps a web based solution would be the best, but I dont know how much development it would take for you to have Aida64 create a local website that all kinds of phones can view. I would like to think that it would be far easier to maintain compared to having apps for Android, IOS, Tablets etc.

  4. I just had another chat with the support over at Mad Catz/Cyborg Gaming, and I got bad news, they dont have any plans to release a SDK for this keyboard. I was told in December 2012 that they would release the SDK in early 2013, and now they dont have any plans for it, pretty bad move from them if you ask me.


    Anyone considering to buy this keyboard to use with Aida64, dont buy it, there are other keyboards with support for Aida64.

  5. After careful consideration I put an order on this Strike 7 keyboard, it just seems to be so much better quality. I'll just have to run Aida64 in the background until they released an SDK for it.

    I had the chance to mess around with a Razer Deathstalker Extreme (Starwards edition) and this Mad Catz Strike 7, from that experience I can tell that there is a world of difference, the Razer's keyboard got flat keys that didnt feel good to type with at all, and sure the Strike 7 doesnt have mechanical keys but they are still better than the ones in my current G19.

  6. Without a SDK there's not much we can do... If you want to put a fire under Cyborg, to push them into releasing a SDK, please feel free to do so. But it's not our responsibility to do that, since we are not customers of them.

    Ofcourse it's not your responsibility, it was not directed towards Aida64 in any way, the text was targeted against Cyborg, sorry if I wasnt very clear.

    I'll edit my post so it better reflects that it is Cyborg support wich is slow, especially when you consider the price on their products, that keyboard costs $299 USD, wich I think should include a premium support. They gave me a reply today, after 5 days.

    I dont own their keyboard either but I still would like them to release the SDK because it looks like a pretty cool keyboard, I did put some fire under them though and got a reply that they will release a SDK in the beginning of 2013.

    This is from Cyborg support:

    At the moment we do not have a SDK for the public. We will have one ready at the beginning of next year as soon as we have a clear vision of what will be implemented in the keyboard.

  7. I created a support ticket "at Cyborg support" December 14, still no response so I'm not so sure about this company. You (Cyborg) can't run a business selling premium products without giving support every day of the week, atleast not if you want to be successful.

    Edit: I wasnt really clear about who the target was, sorry. My native Language is Swedish so sometimes I might write things expecting people to understand what I mean, wich aint easy I know. :)

  8. Actually I'm going to try the latest version wich you are using now and come back here after.

    Update: Installed 8.40.83

    Using Windows 8 Pro x64, up to date, and latest version of Aida64 Extreme Edition, I dont get your error so perhaps you need to re-install the software again.

  9. I have few examples :

    I have created a Live USB with Windows ADK (Windows PE 4, a Live "Windows 8") : with that program that boot (even with EFI, or with secure boot EFI) I can run diagnostics for PC with problems, change files, registry keys, test hard disk, RAM, Ghost, install Windows, download programs or drivers on internet if needed, etc...

    In fact, it's a home made "all in one" tool.

    I also use AIDA64 into my "Live 8" with a x86 system, but many new computers can't boot with legacy bios mode ; so I use more and more a x64 Windows PE, but AIDA64 can't run on it.

    I had the same problem with Firefox that is compiled only for 32 bit systems, but I'm lucky, an open source project compile it into 64 bit : Waterfox.

    Oh, that sounds interesting, gotta look at something like this for myself, just had a nasty diskcrash and this is a solution that would have speeded up the recovery time, couldnt run memtest from the windows dvd because I was using Raid mode, it somehow thought the dvd was a hdd. :)
