Important Information

1. In order for the LED effects (created using the SDK) to actually work on a target Dell XPS system, Dell QuickSet application needs to be installed on that system. You can download QuickSet from Support.dell.com.

2. The static lib version of the SDK is compatible only with those applications built with VS2005. If you are using earlier versions of VS 2003, please use the dll version of the SDK.

Fixes & Enhancements

1. This release should allow target applications using the LightFX SDK to talk to any Dell XPS system that supports LED control.

2. This release adds support for Vista (32 and 64 bit) and XP 64 bit as well.

3. Enhancements to effectbuilder tool so that the LED effect can be played from the tool provided the system supports LightFX.
