Alienfx not working in command center

I recently re installed alienfx and the alienware command center on my m17x r2. The issue I'm having is that in the command center everything is there but alienfx. It loads but the only thing it shows is a silver wheel with nothing else. I've been dealing with this for awhile and I get this error code every time. I'm hoping someone on here can help. 

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Hello maxziegler13!

I would recommend you to uninstall the command center perform a power drain and reinstall it again.

If you need assistance on how to do it in the proper way on this article you will find instructions.

RE: Alienfx not working in command center

I tried to do this but it will not let me install .net framework 3.5, I have it turned on in features and every time it runs the install it gives me a setup error and wont install any farther. However 4.5 installed fine. I don't understand why 3.5 wont install.

I also get this error message in the command center

RE: Alienfx not working in command center

In that case I will recommend you to run an Alienrespawn since there should be something wrong with windows.

If you need assistance on how to do it you can check this article.
