Fix for AORUS Engine not starting at all

I’ve wrote about this some time ago and have since found a solution and also disappointment finding out Gigabyte actually removed preset profiles from it so it’s all sliders now…

The faulting module causing AORUS Engine to fail is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\GIGABYTE\AORUS ENGINE\GLedApi.DLL

So, go into that folder and just delete the file. AORUS Engine will start. Go to its settings and check for updates. It’ll find something was missing and it’ll download missing RGB Fusion component which is actually the same thing you’ve deleted, but it works fine with that one for some weird reason.

So, here you have it, a silly fix for even more silly fail that Gigabyte STILL hasn’t addressed. Heh.

  1. Legend Worked perfectly. Been trying to get this to operate for ages and you have the solution in a 2 second fix.


  2. Tried to use this fix, but there IS no file C:\Program Files (x86)\GIGABYTE\AORUS ENGINE\GLedApi.DLL. 😦 So uh… back to the drawing board.


  3. I had this same issue and didn’t have a ‘GLedApi.DLL’ file. The closest one was ‘GvLedLib.dll’, but removing that didn’t help.

    Instead, I uninstalled AORUS ENGINE through Control Panel and downloaded the installer from the generic support page ( instead of my graphics card’s support page ( and it seems to be working alright again now. Both installer files were the same version/date/size and even hash (v1‎.95/2‎020-12-17/1‎16.84mb/..88529F), so we’ll see how long it works this time around.
