Firstly, thank you for providing us with this information.
We have seen some problems when launching the Intel(R) Desktop Utilities, and we are working to identify the cause of the problem. We expect a new version of the software will take care of the problem.
We will take the problem you had with the ITK into account, again, thank you for your details.
Have you tried Intel(R) Desktop Utilities 3.2.0.038a???
Please excuse me for jumping in here but while you're here, I have (but with other hardware) the old problem of the Windows control buttons on the top right not highlighting properly when the mouse rolls over them. This is still occuring when my display is set to 150% in Windows 7.
If you have any involvement with (or are also part of) the team who developed the latest version of Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers, THAT app does not have this problem. Perhaps you can integrate your efforts into just the one combined IDU and IRST application (that has fully working and not just flickering illumination of the minimise and close buttons at 150% Display settings)? I know I'd love to see such an app and I think theres a natural reason for why they should be integrated - ie people who want one, generally want both. Perhaps you can point this post out to the senior managers responsible for such decisions - thanks for listening!
Even with the latest version of IDU, there's a problem - an incompatibility (interoperability) issue between Intel(R) Integrator Toolkit (ITK), Intel(R) Integrator Assistant (IIA) and Intel(R) Desktop Utilities (IDU). There is a component that is shared between these applications. The latest version of this component is included within the latest releases of IDU, but an older verson is used in ITK/IIA. If ITK and/or IIA is installed after IDU, this older version will cause both applications to not work properly. We are working to address this issue as quickly as we can. In the meantime, please install IDU after ITK/IIA. If you want to upgrade the version of ITK/IIA that you are using, uninstall IDU first, install the upgrade and then reinstall IDU...
