I saw a few posts on how to repair ESB, but nothing is helping.
I recently updated my GeForce Drivers to Version 471.11 (06/22/2021) and my Easy Settings Box stopped working almost immediately after. I have;
1) I repaired ESB, uninstalled and reinstalled (6 times) using the 64bit installer (32bit does not work for me),
2) I checked my monitor drivers and reinstalled with the latest file from Samsung Website,
3) I cleared the App-Data by uninstalling ESB and went into User/Bobberetic/AppData/Roaming and deleted the ESB folder. Otherwise I also checked the Program Files under Samsung to see if any ESB files remained (they were all gone prior to re-installation) (https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Monitors-and-Memory/Easy-Setting-Box-Setting-Screen-doesn-t-Appe...).
4) I have also Downloaded and Installed Application C34F971.exe for all my listed display ports etc and that didn't help. (https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Monitors-and-Memory/Easy-Setting-Box-Setting-Screen-doesn-t-Appe...)
When I launch Easy Settings Box, it does run and it identifies my monitor as "1", but the option to snap tabs never appears. I also cannot open the application using the shortcut, or the Hidden Icons tab (it ignores my clicks and right clicking only says "Quit"). When I press "Open File" on the ESB Shortcut, it does nothing.
It's been a while now and I'm still dragging tabs around the screen and it's driving me crazy!
Hi Strawberry Cake!
Thanks for posting the links - I have tried these though in my initial attempt, and again just now.
When I try installing it I get a message "Installs on Mircosoft Windows NT 32 bit OS" and then "The installer was interrupted before Easy Setting Box could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again".
Does this mean I'm not using 32 OS? I tried running both the 32bit and 64bit installer from the Samsung website :'(
I wound it back to Version 466.77, someone from GeForce Chat helped me by sending me the link. At the time, I was two versions ahead, so I had to go back twice until 466.77 worked.
Hi Bob and to all other Samsung G9 users,
The right solution to the easy setting box issue is download 466.77 from https://www.nvidia.com/zh-tw/drivers/results/176398/ and re-install.
You don't have to remove the current patch, just install the old version and ESB is back.
Funny thing is if you open Geoforce Experience, your Geoforce Game Ready Driver remains
the lastest patch which is not 466.77 just installed (for me it shows 471.41).
