Brookstone LED Fan Editor Software

I recently received a Brookstone Message Fan with Floating LED Display as a gift.  It lets users edit the floating text on the fan which displays while it rotates!  Cool!

Unfortunately the fan only comes with a CD for the software, and I did not have a CD drive (hello 2017!).  There is a link on Brookstone’s website that lists a link for the software, but it only contains an executable file when the application itself actually needs a few more references.  When I first opened the software I got an error: “Can’t Load LIB\WxkUSB.dll”.

A quick Google search led me to this YouTube Video “Brookstone fan message Lib Wxkusb.dll File to Install – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GtIcglWmjQ&vl=en“.  That video links to a DropBox URL for the .dll file, but downloading that and trying to run the application I still got an error.

I finally got my hands on a CD drive and extracted the entire software package to edit the LED Fan from Brookstone.  Once I use these files I was able to edit the fan settings in just a few minutes!  I zipped them all up and uploaded them to my Google Drive and shared with everyone.  Hope this helps!

    Totally thanks buddy. Sons fan didn’t have a disc and you made his fan into an epic birthday gift instead of a big epic failure and return to store… 🙂

      I had the same backwards issue, had to get the software off the CD. I’m happy to send it to the author to add another version of the software, but can’t find any email for him.
