Thank you for joining the Intel communities.
I downloaded the driver to see if I get the same result with this driver but I did not have any problem installing the Nuvoton* Consumer Infrared (CIR).
I’m using the latest BIOS version 0350 and also I have Windows up to date and every driver installed in this system.
Please try downloading the driver again from this website:
Just to let everyone know. I got my NUC replaced and now everything is working fine. Either I had a broken Intel NUC or that the BIOS updating/reverting made something fail. Last BIOS I tried was 350 and there are newer versions available and maybe those would have fixed the problem but I got mine replaced before Intel released those versions.
