We just checked this on a fresh install of Windows 8.1 - all updates. RM Series Mixers appear and operate in UC as expected.

Strongly suggest doing the following:

  1. Turn off mixer
  2. Use Programs and Features in Windows Control Panel to uninstall Universal Control.
  3. Open C:\Windows\Temp - delete everything in that folder (that Windows will let you)
  4. Windows Key + R to bring up Run Command, type %appdata% and navigate to PreSonus folder and delete Universal Control folder.
  5. Empty your trash
  6. Reboot
  7. Make sure your system is up to date, run Windows update until it tells you your system is up to date.
  8. Update VCRunTimes -
    1. Install both 64-Bit and 32-Bit Visual C++ Runtimes just to be sure.
  9. Install Universal Control
  10. Reboot a 2nd time after install is complete
  11. At the desktop Open Universal Control and turn on your mixer

Mixer should appear in Universal Control.

If not open a support ticket at for further assistance and include everything you did here so they can assist.
