    I use my BlackWidow Chroma and Naga Hex with my work laptop when at home and installed the SDK so the backlights would work, unfortunately the Chroma SDK binds HTTP.SYS to port 80 which prevents my local Apache server from loading.

    I understand it's an edge case but is it possible to change what port the SDK binds to so I can have my backlights and Apache server?

    Razer are aware of this and are in the process of updating the API to use a different port.

    Do we have an ETA on this? I have to uninstall until it is fixed.

    @baileyh for the time being, launch task manager, go to services tab and stop the Razer Chroma SDK Server (don't confuse it with Razer Chroma SDK Service). Also right-click it, "open services" and disable it there so it doesn't autostart on your next boot

    Thanks, that fixed my issue so I can go back to work... I hope Razer fix this A.S.A.P.!

    Hey gang. Synapse got an update today. It should be on a new port "54235". Let me know if you've got the update and it's on the new port.

    Thanks for the heads-up! Indeed nothing running on port 80 anymore, and *something* running on port 54235 :)

    Code:
    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> netstat -n -b -a | Select-String -Pattern '(TCP|UDP)\s+[0-9.]+(:80|:54235)' -Context 0,1
    
    >   TCP    0.0.0.0:54235          0.0.0.0:0              LISTENING
       Can not obtain ownership information
    I've noticed the changelog on http://developer.razerzone.com/works-with-chroma/download/ hasn't been updated yet, any other big changes in this release since 2.1.5?

    That was the only change I believe.
