Exactly what does not work? Last update made lots of changes (many features are no longer available).
Dell | Alienware Technical Support
Opening your case does not void your warranty! Check out Alienware Artificial Intelligence
I can't always reply to PM's, if you need extra assistance visit:
Hello when I select the supportassist application, it opens ok but I can not do anything it loading infinite , I can only close application i tryed to instal again and not fixed i called support assist and the girls said me gonna be fix soon
Thanks for your post. Apologies that your system is not performing as expected.
Here are some steps that need to be performed:
A new version of SupportAssist will be launched on June 4, 2018, if you can wait.
I have the same problem on both my desktop and laptop computers. I contacted Dell support and was given options to pay for technical assistance. This was my reply:
SupportAssist stopped working on my Alienware 17 R3 after the latest update. I suspect it was caused by the SupportAssist Update Plugin. I uninstalled SupportAssist, then manually reinstalled using the SupportAssist Installer from the link below. It works fine now.
Make that THREE computers that Support Assist is not working on and I am using Win7 Home Premium!!! Since the new version, the "Dell" button on my keyboard, middle of three on the top right of my Inspiron N5110 no longer works and when I finally launch Support Assist it, no longer provides the functions I used to use to access e.g. "Analyse disk space".
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Support Assist, but to no avail
Are we all wasting our time? Do you think Dell monitors these Community posts? I doubt it.
My computer is quite old and I will be replacing soon - but certainly NOT with another Dell computer!!!!!!!!!!!!
Community Manager why should we do a reinstall after your up date to get supportAssist up and running again? in doing so we loose a lot of files at times. dell needs to fix this mess it created. we start the app and it just keeps trying to load and if you touch it with the mouse it will say unresponsive. TRY AND FIX IT! Thank CSVeirs
