Magic Utilities Version 3 has been released to the public in August 2018. In general, everything works as expected. There are still a few hiccups which are listed below.
Please report your issues using the Send feedback button in the application.
Your feedback helps us to fix these problems.
In some cases the mouse scrolling speed was very slow or too high after a reboot or power cycling the Bluetooth radio. The issue is linked to the smooth scrolling initialization.
It has been in version 220.127.116.11. If you are affected do a manual update.
In version 18.104.22.168 the suggest Device restart might not work in all cases.
Manually pressing the button above the device image should always work.
This has been fixed in version 22.214.171.124.
In Windows 10, sometimes your Bluetooth is paired, but it doesn't work,
no matter if you have installed the Magic Utilities or not: Another Windows bug!
In Windows > Devices make sure your device is listed in the Mouse, keyboard & pen section.
If it's listed in the Other devices section it won't work.
- Delete your device from Other devices and wait a bit.
- Disable the Bluetooth radio
- Enable the Bluetooth radio again.
- Pair your device again.
- Double-check if it's now appearing in the Mouse, keyboard & pen section.
Some users reported a Critical Driver Error after the auto update to version 126.96.36.199.
The error means, that the previous driver is still loaded so the app can't talk to the device.
- Try to restart your computer.
If this does not help:
- Uninstall the Magic Utilities
- Restart your computer
- Install the the latest version of Magic Utilities again
(there is no need to downgrade to a previous version).
Driver error - Code 37 after computer restart
Only a few users still reporting that after every computer restart they get a Driver error - Code 37.
Possible permanent solution:
- Do a manual update to version 188.8.131.52 or higher.
- Shut down Windows to turn off your computer completely.
- Turn your computer on to do a "cold start" of Windows.
Please contact us if this really helped.
If connected with Bluetooth, after wake up from sleep or hibernation, you usually need to click the mouse or trackpad, or press a key on the keyboard to reconnect your device. Some users reported that it doesn't work, but so fare we can't reproduce this in order to fix it. In case your devices do not reconnect:
- In Windows Settings, turn off Bluetooth
- Wait 5 seconds
- Turn Bluetooth on again.
- Now click or press your device.
Or restart your computer.
This is, of course, difficult if your input devices do not work! You can connect both Magic Keyboards and the Magic Trackpad 2 with the provided USB cable with your computer.USB connections should always work.
If Settings / Check for update on startup is active, a network error may show up each time the computer wakes up from sleep.
Disable the update check in the Settings menu to avoid the warning. Manual update checks can be performed in the Help menu.
