Thanks for posting
It would have been helpful to know the driver version that you have installed, but in this case I would like to recommend the driver version 15.3.1 for your wireless driver and the dashboard.
Here are some steps that you may follow in order to resolve your issue:
1- First download the latest drivers and software package (Wireless_15.3.1_s64.exe) and save them to your desktop.
Then download the dashboard software: (Intel_My_WiFi_Dashboard_15.3.1_s64.msi)
3- 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.
4- Go to ‘Start’ right-click on ‘Computer’ click on Manage, on Computer Management window 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.
5- Remove a folder named Wireless; it is located inside a hidden folder therefore prior deleting this folder you need to set the Folder Options in Advanced Settings to show hidden files, folders and drives, and then look for the Wireless folder found at C:\Users\YOUR_PROFILE_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Intel.
6- 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)
7- Install the dashboard.
Something else I may add is that very soon we will have a new tool that is going to replace the Intel® My WiFi Dashboard.
Unfortunate it didn't work, I am still unable to enable ICS, if I try to start the Dashboard it comes up with an error message (although a second attempt to start it up went error-free); here are the details:

When will this be available? I'm trying to get my wifi dashboard working but having the same problem as the OP, cannot get ICS to work.
We will let you know when the new software will be available. I am sorry for this inconvenience; in the meantime you may want to check the following information:
Unable to activate Internet Connection Sharing: When you turn on Hotspot, the Intel® My WiFi Dashboard software will attempt to enable Internet Connection Sharing (unless ICS has been turned off at the Hotspot Preferences window). If ICS cannot be enabled, it may be for one of the following reasons:
- Your system administrator has disabled ICS.
- Your computer is running a version of Microsoft Windows* that does not support ICS (for example, Windows 7 Home Basic).
- Your computer is not currently connected to the internet. To correct this, try the following:
- Be sure that you do not have a wired connection. If you have an Ethernet cable plugged into your computer, unplug it.
- Be sure that you have Internet access. Open a browser and try accessing a web site.
- Turn Hotspot off and then back
