Library and 404 Issues

If SignalRGB is showing a 404 error, or the library is failing to load, it’s having trouble establishing an internet connection. There are several things that can cause this to occur. Below you will find a list of causes and solution ordered from most common to least common.

Your Windows username has non-standard English characters

If your Windows username contains non-standard English characters (åéñòüç), SignalRGB may not function properly. Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to migrate one user profile folder to a new one. We suggest backing up whatever data you consider important and creating a new user account name without using special characters where you can later restore your manual backup.
