So I’ve been having strange issues with my Fujitsu tablet. The buttons on the bezel stopped working for no apparent reason. (but I now suspect was due to a system update) I started getting the following error when I would try to rotate the screen with the rotate button.
“SetSlate returned error. FjSetSlt is exiting”
After some looking around at tabletpcreview.com and some trial and error I found a solution.
Originally I tried the procedures outlined by a number of people to uninstall the button utility, reboot, uninstall driver, reboot, delete the buttons directory under the program files/fujitsu directory, reboot then reinstall the driver, reboot, reinstall the utility…..
unfortunately this didn’t work.
However, I noticed that during the installation process, Windows7 as usual would ask the typical UAC question… “This program is attempting to make changes to the system…. “ (or whatever it normally says) and the install program opened a couple of command windows. These windows would then generate a couple of errors. This got me to thinking about some issues I was having with some other software on my new development machine at work… and I had an idea……
I turned off User Access Control and rebooted.
now… with UAC turned off I followed the directions..
- Uninstall the button utility
- Uninstall the button drivers
- Re-install the button drivers
- Re-install the button utility
….. it worked! The buttons started to work……
I suspect that because UAC was enabled (even though I gave permission to the installation program) the command files that it used did NOT have elevated (admin) permissions and therefore failed to perform whatever actions they were supposed to carry out. (hence the error messages)
Now the next thing I need to try is to see if this idea might help me fix the blue-tooth problem I was having a couple months ago (which again happened after an system update)
