    "Init VGA Data Fail. Please Restart GPU Tweak" ?

    I've installed GPU Tweak II ver1057.
    Every time I try to launch it I get this error in a window pop up: "Init VGA Data Fail. Please Restart GPU Tweak".

    I have tried the following:

    Installed early versions (GPU Tweak I). Every time I try to launch these older versions, nothing happens. I see the GPUTweak.exe service start under windows services, but it disappears after 3-5 seconds.

    Update nvidia drivers.

    Installed on different hard drives and different folders from the default.

    Tried in SLI and single card mode.

    Turned off AI Suite 3

    Ran application on different windows users.

    Turned CPU OC off.

    Are there any logs the application keeps for troubleshooting?
    Any ideas?

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
    i7-5820k - OC'd
    Strix GTX980 OC (SLI)
    AI Suite 3 is installed
    GeForce driver ver 353.62

    If you open the GpuT2 file location [.....Program Files (x86)/Asus/GPU TweakII ], look for "InitData_Card1.ini". Open/Edit it with your favorite text editor. The very first section Titled "[VGACardInfo]" contains your card, if this is different than what you actually have, then ya you will have issues.

    In the same folder is 3 other files with similar name ending Card1.ini to Card4.ini, i am thinking that if you installed your card in a different slot you might have one of these other files as the active settings file, I dont know for sure. (I find GpuT2 clumsily programmed to begin with, so it wouldnt surprise me to see this. )

    I dont recommend this but, I renamed the unused InitCard2 - 4.ini files. I did this while I was looking for useless files. I dont know why ASUS includes ATIWinflash and files, ASUS doesnt even use Liveupdate, AFAIK its only in there as a marketing feature. Personally, I would never use auto-update for anything besides Windows Update.

    Here is an example of mine:
    ModelName=R9280-DC2 TOP
    BIOSDate=02/18/14 04:29

    You can confirm some of these with a program like Speccy or other source you can get detailed System Information.
