Aspire 5920G Launch Manager Patch

Hello to all 5920G users, here is a patch for the ugly launch manager for your keys on your laptop, it may work with other models of the acer (possibly even some Gateway, eMachine or Packard Bell, because I have seen Launch Manager operating on the factory machines)

**Update, v12.4(Strictly for LMv3.0) is out, grab it from one of the following mirrors**
V12.4 I have fixed many issues and added several features too.

This is worth mentioning, you no longer need to go into the registry for your custom bluetooth device, the new BT.exe should do everything for you 😀

Not sure if it is worth mentioning, the Bluetooth is now using registry, you will need to run regedit and navigate to:
and change the “BTID”‘s entry(found on the right side) with your device ID, if you don’t have this field to change with, press your bluetooth button AFTER you installed the patch, which will add it for you.

After 4 hours of hard work right after Chris Z’s report on Launch Manager 3.0 for Win 7, I worked as hard as I could to push the new patcher out for everyone! Interesting enough, Acer changed a lot of things in this version…

For now(possibly forever), I will not be releasing patches for v2.0 Launch Manager, sorry for the inconvenience


Download links for Launch Manager:

Acer Aspire 6930 (reported to “works like a charm!” when installed with launch manager for 5920)
Acer Aspire 8920 (sounds like it needed tweaking to get it working, but give it a shot!)
Acer Aspire 8930 (install LM from 5920, then use my patch)

List of not working machines:

Acer Aspire 5930 (reported partially works, new test results with v11 is required!)

none reported



Noticed the pretty icon and the pretty background comparing to this old one (I had to manually make the Arcade Button image which replaces the old internet button image)


Some highlight features:


-Power Plan Toggling via e button pressed (Similar to Stealth Mode in Alienware)
-The Arcade button can now be reprogrammed
-Bluetooth Key now works with any aftermarket bluetooth dongles if you choose to bind the key during installation

Other features:

-Simple installation
-Pretty icon that fits Vista and 7
-Compatible with XP/Vista/7 both 32 and 64-bit
-Fixed the Acer MediaTouch compatibility with WinAMP (and many other famous media players)
-Fixed the Synaptics touchpad’s scrolling compatibility
-Enable user’s On Screen Display preference

Note: Tested on Windows 7 and Windows XP, software is compatible with both 32 and 64 bit. Any test results or feedback is welcomed!

Patching is simple, download and run the latest exe from here or here it will automatically detect 32 bit or 64 bit, it also closes the program before the installation for you, I have gone through many trouble to finalize the installer to perfection!

Here is the change log, it is also embedded in the installer and saves a copy in the program folder

Morris’ Launch Manager V12.4 – x86+x64bit

    Hey Morris,

    Good to see your work living beyond The Acer Guy, and all compiled here.

    I couldn’t get the bluetooth config to work at all, don’t think it adjusted the registry edits on installation, as I get .NET framework errors stating Morrisoft, Bluetooth is denied.

    I don’t know if you can offer a walkthrough for that element, as on installation opting Yes for bluetooth remap didn’t work in my case. Dunno about others.

    I’m on the 5920g too.

    All the best.

    I no longer own the 5920G, but I will help you as much as I can. Which OS are you currently running? did you try installing the latest .Net? disabling UAC might help if i missed some compiling specs

    • AFro Says:

      Yes I believe its up to date. Running Windows 7, don’t worry about it too much, not a big deal.

      Which computer are you using now? The timeline you reviewd?

      • morrismurphy Says:

        Yes, I am using the timeline I have reviewed, good machine, but the sound not as powerful as the 5920G 🙂 Gosh, I missed those built in speakers from 5920G.

        Did you disable User Account Control?? (UAC)

    Hey man,

    Yeah totally, one of the biggest pleasures of this laptop. I just wanted to say thanks for all your guides and mods, I finally got round to upgrading the CPU to t9300, wouldn’t have known where to start without your guide man.

    I also replaced the hdd as I was having troubles with it (thanks for your help there as well), put in a new Seagate Momentus XT, unbelievable hdd!
    Those two combined have made it feel like a brand new laptop, for under £200!

    Plus I’ve always had your softmods running and they make such a huge difference to the day to day useage. Multitouch pad changed the game entirely.

    Anyway thanks for everything. BTW you seen this Omnimo 3 rainmeter config? I’ve been running that for a while too, you should check it out man its incredible.

    Just a note to say that the browser launcher (unremappable, Chrome default) doesn’t launch until Chrome is launched at least once elsewhere

  6. Andrew Says:

    I would like to check the mapping of my Acer 5920G internet browser button. It doesn’t show in you control box. How can I access it please?
