WOW Wrath of the Lich King Keyset for ZBoard

I just purchased the ZBoard & Keyset for WOW, but I cannot get the thing to work. The icon is constantly red. It only turns green if i put in the keysets that came w/ the ZBoard. I have talked to the people @ the store where it was purchased, but they say there is no return policy because of the package being opened. Can someone please help? Could it just be a faulty keyset? The Zboard seems to be working fine. I'm lost & new to all of this. Any help would be appreciated. BTW, anyone know why i can't get on Zboard's website?

    I have the same problem... I installed the zboard before the weekend, and it worked for like 2 days, but now the symbol is constantly red, and though it works like a normal keyboard, none of the shortcuts are working and there are no "Mods" in the Z-Engine program... I'm gonna un-install and re-install and hope that works :)

I had the same problems as you and found this answer on blizzard forums.

Steelseries took over from Ideazon and Ideazone no longer exist so none of their websites work any more.

First, the disc that comes with your ZBoard is now too old to use. The drivers on the disc were made by Ideazon before Steelseries took over, whereas the WotLK keyset was made afterwards. Steelseries seem to have completely reworked the drivers in the interim.

How to Fix
Step 1. Uninstall your ZBoard.
Step 2. Go to http://www.steelseries.com/downloads/#keyboards and DL the Z Engine.
Step 3. Make sure your ZBoard is plugged in with the standard keyset.
Step 4. Install the new Z Engine.
Step 5. Switch to your WotLK keyset.
Step 6. Run WoW.

I used this solution last night with some success.
Most of the gamer keys now work but some still don't work correctly such as, all the chat buttons default to say.
Hope this helps

Go to http://www.steelseries.com/int/download and get the newest file for your keyboard. On your computer go under control panel and chose add/remove programs. Uninstall Zenigne. Go to
Start ==> My Computer ==> C: (your hard drive) ==> Program Files. Now find the folder called Ideazon. Delete it. Now install the file you downloaded. This should fix your keyboard.

This isn't so much a solution as it is a warning! I have heard from multiple sources that they do not support Vista for this product. It will still work as a normal Keyboard but your specials will do nothing. I recommend you your keyboard meets and accident and you find a different store of same name to totally return the unopened one to. I hope this helps some/
