How to Fix ArmourySwAgent.exe Application Error?

When users boot into Windows, they encounter the ArmourySwAgent app running in the background with a white screen. This error occurs on ASUS devices and is used to manage hardware components like RGB lights. This issue stops the app from working. The reason behind this issue is that .Net Framework components are not enabled on your device.

Other factors include application incompatibility, outdated versions, or corrupted software files.

In this article, we will discuss different methods to solve this problem.

1. Enable .Net Framework Components

The error often occurs due to a dependency on .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8. Software like ArmourySwAgent needs the .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 to function correctly and avoid errors. The .NET Framework provides features such as security, compatibility, and memory management which aid applications in managing their usage and operation.

  1. Open the Search Box, type Turn Windows features on or off and open it.
  2. Check the box next to .NET Framework 3.5 and .NET Framework 4.8 to enable them.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions. Note: An internet connection may be required if the files are not available on your computer.

2. Drag to New Desktop (Workaround)

A temporary solution to this issue is to drag the error window to a new desktop and forget about it. This will shift the app to another desktop and stop it from interfering with your work.

  1. Press Windows + Tab.
  2. Click on New Desktop in the top left corner.
  3. Drag the app to the new desktop using the mouse.

3. Use Task Scheduler

You can use Task Scheduler to change the startup behavior of the application. This will allow the app to run in the background without asking for permission every time you log into your computer. Task Scheduler is a piece of software in Windows used to automate different tasks.

  1. Search for Task Scheduler in the Search box and run it as an Administrator.
  2. Go to Task Scheduler Library > ASUS.
  3. Look for “ArmourySocketServer” in the right window and double-click on it to open Properties.
  4. Make sure “Run with high privileges” is marked, then click on Change User or Group and make sure the object name is “SYSTEM.”
  5. Press OK and restart your PC.

4. Update the Software

An outdated version of the application can cause issues while running it properly. We can update the app to the latest version as this will update the software and fix bugs and issues.

You can go to the ASUS official website and download it.

5. Reinstall or Uninstall Armoury Crate Application

If none of the solutions work, it is suggested to reinstall the software. This will remove the app from your computer and install a fresh version of the software with fewer bugs, which can help in solving your problem.

  1. Press Windows + I to open Settings.
  2. Go to Apps.
  3. Find the Armory Crate and uninstall it.
  4. Go to the ASUS official website and install it.
