Hi, When enabling 'Autostart minimized with system', I always get the follwing error message during boot 'Error initializing SMC Layer, please make sure that your Mac system is supported and you have correctly installed the program.' And Macs Fan Control is not lauched.
When boot is fully completed (Boot Camp icon present in system tray and services lauched), manual lauch of Macs Fan Control is successfull. I therefore wrote a script in the windows startup folder to delay by 20s the lauch of Macs Fan Control which worked well. I have updated to the last beta 4 and this does not work anymore (I have done some other updates so I am not absolutely sure whether the new version is responsible.) Nevertheless, the 'Autostart minimized with system' still does not work and manual launch after boot is still OK. Thanks a lot for your work, hoping you can solve these issue. Best regards.
Configuration iMac 24' early 2008 - Machine:iMac8,1 Mac OS X 10.5.8 - Windows XP SP3 - Boot Camp 2.2. Hi again, I just checked the registry for some MFC related keys and I get duplicated ones in HKCU Software Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Run: 'MacsFanControl'=' 'C: Program Files Macs Fan Control MacsFanControl.exe ' /minimized' 'BootCampFanControl'=' 'C: Program Files Macs Fan Control MacsFanControl.exe ' /minimized' I suppose this relates to a name change in the versions of MFC. I have installed the first version of MFC and upgraded with every new beta version without uninstalling the previous one I have deleted the MacsfanControl key which seems not to be used anymore (BootCampFanControl is deleted/created when toggling the autostart option). Still the same issue.
Should I do a clean uninstall then reinstall and how to proceed? Hi Steven Some investigation regarding inpout32. I have upgraded from the version you use (1.2) to the latest available (1.5) on. I did it the following way: - enable the 'autostart minimzed with system' MFC option then quit MFC - replace the dll by the new one in the MFC program directory - delete the.sys driver file in the /windows/systems32/driver directory which is installed the first time the dll is launched On the next reboot, everything is fine: driver is reinstalled and MFC is activated.
Shutdown and next reboot brings the error message and MFC is not lauched. On the first time, the driver is installed and loaded before the dll is invoked.
For the following runs, there might no reason that the legacy inpout32 driver is fully loaded when MFC autostarts. My iMac is not brand new and the boot process is quite long which can enforce such issues. Kind regards.
I don't think you quite understand Macs Fan Control. Each fan is controlled separately. A MBP only has two fans. If you want them to both work the same, then you should select the same sensor - The CPU sensor that typically runs hotter.
You will see that in the configuration window. Then set the 'kick in' temperature to around 40º C. Do this for each fan. Configuring SMC Fan Control is just as easy but is done based only on setting the base fan speed.
SMC Fan Control is only capable of setting the idle fan speed. That may be a better choice for a laptop than Macs Fan Control, but you should try them out before deciding which you prefer. As for iStat Menues you do not have to switch profiles. Create your desired profile as the 'Default' profile or the 'Medium' profile, select that profile as the default, then Save your settings. There is no need to switch them to anything. I use iStat to set the fans on my iMac and I never need to change them.
Both cores are contained in a single chip, so the object is to cool the chip. Tying to the hotter of the two cores assures that core won't overheat because the other core is cooler. On the computer I have that uses Macs Fan Control that is how I set it up.

I don't know if Mac Fan Control acknowledges one fan for the CPU and one for the GPU, but if so, then, yes, I would set it up separately. SMC Fan Control is essentially the same as iStat Menues. Personally, the internal fan control contained in the SMC chip in your computer is adequate to assure that the CPU and GPU do not overheat.
I wouldn't recommend using any such software and trust that the Apple engineers know what they are doing. Laptops run hot because they are small, thin, and light. There isn't much room inside to provide huge cooling devices. Apple's manuals tell you not to use them on your lap because of the possibility of burning your thighs or causing overheating damage to the computer. Apple does not even refer to them as 'laptops.'
They are called 'Notebook' computers. They also are not gaming machines. Although you can play some games on them any game that makes heavy demands on the processors will cause them to become uncomfortably hot unless you take external cooling precautions. Personally, the internal fan control contained in the SMC chip in your computer is adequate to assure that the CPU and GPU do not overheat. 😁😁😁😢😢😢 Personally I LOL about 'protection from Apple'. I have an iMac 27' 2010 late and GPU breaked for overheat. The iMac is Out of warranty, so, I send my iMac for a 'Reballing' GPU and now it is working again.
