Battery Calibration tool
« on: 03-August-15, 07:13:15 »

Hi,
For a few months, the Battery Calibration utility was available on my model support page (GE60 2PL). Then it disappeared, but only from the W8.1 page, it's still here for W7. So what, don't you need to calibrate your battery with W8.1 or newer?

I use W10 since I bought this computer, and decided to run the tool anyway, supposing MSI made a mistake removing it. I just have one problem, and I don't know if it's W10 related or not, as I never used another version on this computer : I can't start calibration because I have an error : "other windows are open", even when I close everything. The unique solution is to kill every process running, even when I don't know what is it, and let the PC totally empty from any program running. That way it unlock the Start button. But I think this is a bug.

Do you have the same issue in W10? Or maybe I am wrong and this tool is really not designed to work with W8.1 and W10?

Thank you :)

Have you tried clean install? Uninstall the software and try install it again.

Oh good thanks it worked.

It remains a question, why did MSI remove the tool from the download page of my computer? Can I safely use it? Thank you :)

They're just really bad at driver support. slow at releasing things and often forget posting important drivers for months even though they are available.

Yes I think it's just that… Removed by mistake in January, and never back online.

Maybe they just haven't updated the page yet, they still testing a lot of utilities for W10 on all of their Notebook.
I believe it's safe to use.

If your are using GE60 2PL, this is MSI windows 10 version.
You have to use it from other model and it may have compatible.

Hello michael.stoch,
Don't know what's your issue exactly?
Have you tried the Battery Calibration for Windows 10 provided above?

I also have the same "open windows" issue from the battery calibration app. Using v1.0.1508.1001, which was pre-installed on my Win10-Home installation.

Any progress on this? Be nice if the app identified the apps it's conflicting with, offered the user the option to close them.

Battery calibration in windows 10 does not work even after reinstalling latest version 1.0.1607.1801. 
Running the software discharges the battery after 4 hours~5 hours and the computer will auto shutdown.

Battery calibration tool will show (????/??/??) on status info.

Any help will be much appreciated.

This is an old post but I have the solution.

When you receive the error. Just ctrl-alt-delete and end the dragon center. This will leave the calibration tool open and allow you to run the calibration.

Thanks! Your solution wasn't the exact fix for me because the MSI Battery Calibration wouldn't let me select my task manager window. But I then realized MSI Battery Calibration is a separate program in task manager, meaning its completely separate program all together. In essence you can start it without even running Dragon Center. 

So here is what worked for me. Close all your applications as you would, INCLUDING ALL THE PROGRAMS IN YOUR HIDDEN TASK BAR (if some won't close for example Windows Defender Security, its fine just leave it), Then search MSI Battery Calibration in your Start Menu. Run MSI Battery Calibration and it should work.
