As most people seem to be aware, the Steelseries GG software sucks, and those of us who just needed Engine, are forced to upgrade. So I dug around for the last version of Engine only, none of the GG bloat and this was it: SteelSeriesEngine3.20.0Setup.exe
This is the direct link, while it works to steelseries’ website: https://engine.steelseriescdn.com/SteelSeriesEngine3.20.0Setup.exe
If they pull it, you can download here: https://vivithemage.com/extra/SteelSeriesEngine3.20.0Setup.exe
If you download it from steelseries or vivithemage.com, these are the hashes:

If you were forced to upgrade to GG, make sure to uninstall and then install this version of Engine. This is currently working fine for my Windows 10 Pro 21H2 patched PC.
