Thank you for your post.
Something that could cause this kind of an error message is if there is some driver/software mismatch; if what you did is just update the drivers then you might still have part of the original customized one from the laptop manufacturer.
Try this, try uninstalling the current drivers and software then re-install the ones you downloaded. See the steps below:
First download and save to your desktop the latest drivers and software package (file: Wireless_15.1.1_s64.exe or Wireless_15.1.1_s64.exe depending if you have Windows* 764 or 32 bit)
Then download and save to your desktop the dashboard software: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=21246&ProdId=3316&lang=eng
Remove the Intel® PROSet software from Control Panel\ Control Panel home\ programs, ‘uninstall a Program’, check also for any other PROSet software and uninstall it too.
Go to ‘Start’ right-click on ‘Computer’ click on device manager (on the left panel) click on “Network Adapters”\Double-Click the adapter name\Drivers Tab and click on the “Uninstall” button if present.
Remove the Wireless folder found at C:\Users\YOUR_PROFILE_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Intel. (if you do not see the “AppData” folder you need to “unhide “ it, pres ‘alt’ click on tools then ‘folder options’ in folder options click on ‘view’ then select “Show hidden files, folders and drives” then click ok )
Install the latest drivers. (Double-click on the icon of the driver, click next, then accept the agreement, select “Custom installation’ make sure all the features are available, no red “X” marked)
Install the dashboard.
thanks for your response, I tried the steps you mentioned but the dashboard keeps starting in Lite mode. Is there a log file or something similar I can check to understand the reason for this? Can you describe which are che checks that the dashboard performs at startup?
I have a Dell Precision M6500 with a Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN adapter. After messing around as I discovered various versions, I uninstalled using Windows uninstaller and tried to clear out the files in C:\Users\YOUR_PROFILE_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Intel (there were none???) then installed Wireless_15.2.0_s32.exe and Intel_My_WiFi_Dashboard_15.2.0_s32.msi, but still get Lite. Even though my computer is 32-bit Windows 7, should I have installed the s64 versions? Otherwise, what should I do?
I have been FAIL for long with 15.2.0 and 15.1.1 for long, today, I found a fallback solution:
1 I follow Nathalie@Intel's suggestion to uninstall the Dashbroad in appwiz.cpl and N6200 driver in devemgmt.msc;
2 I follow Nathalie@Intel's suggestion to clean the "C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\Intel\Wireless" (Adminstrator is my user name)
3 I install Intel PROSET_Wireless_15.1.0_s32.exe, please note I use old version, NOT lastest, it works!
I have been tried 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 for over 5 times, it NEVER works, please Intel find solution for the future.
after my 6 hours testing, I found the way to enabled 15.2.0 My Wifi Dashboard with 15.2.0 driver+PROSet wireless Utils App: Blow is my steps, you can jump 15.1.1 testings and go directly for 15.2.0 as below:

so you can see, the KEY point is:
Uninstalled Intel PROSET/Wireless for Bluetooth (R) + High Speed
Lite is removed in my DELL E6410, N6200 wireless card.
I am step forward with My Wifi Dashboard ENABLED,
next step I want to do is make Intel Widi Enable, but the blocking is "Intel My Wifi已禁用，无法启动Intel My Wifi技术"
Richard Solomon found the solution for issues with WiDi or My Wifi not working properly.
There is possibility that computer manufacturer is blocking the installation of My Wifi option because of security.
That's the reason of all others issues
1. Why option of My Wifi is not visible during the installation.
2. Why My Wifi Dashboard is only in Lite version (no WiFi direct)
3. Why WiDi is not unable to start
Solution is simple. Delete the registry key which inhibits this option.
Dell Latitude E6320
Intel Centrino N 6205
Windows 7 Pro 64bit
Wireless_15.2.0_s64.exe (Intel PROSet Wireless software, drivers and My Wifi)
Setup 126.96.36.199.exe (Intel WiDi)
Everything is working finally...
