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:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Morrisoft\Bluetooth\
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

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)

Patching is simple, download and run the latest exe from here box.net or here mediafire.com 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
