Thank you for joining the Intel communities.
I’m sorry for the bad experience you have had trying to install the driver, you can download the driver you need at the following link:
If the driver above does not work please try this version:
This download performs the exact same issue as previously stated in my forum board postingIt claims it is the version 15, but during the install process it installs the version 10. There is an issue with the software deployment of this driver. Someone seems to have included the version 10 driver in the install package instead of the version 15. I believe there is an issue of human error in including the wrong driver with this install package.
Can someone at Intel please verify the integrity of this driver download? I am certain that if one of your employees would perform an install of this driver they would duplicate the same issue. It installs the Version 10 driver, not the Version 15.
Can confirm, having the same issue, tried the zip version, and low and behold it contains the 10.18 version.
Actually it seems the version of the driver is correct, the problem is the identification. If you search in the DL section for the 15.33 you get this additional information:
Where you can see the actual version is 10.18.10.4358, which the version that is supplied.
Now if you use the intel update utility, or the windows one it reads 10.18.10.4358 instead of the 15.33 even when the driver is the actual on supplied within 15.33..
in short, its an identification issue with the intel update utility.
Edit my version is slightly different as I am using the windwos 10 version.
After I did further research we find out that the version 10.18.10.4226 and 126.96.36.199.4226 are the same, basically the last four numbers represent the Intel build number.
The version between parentheses that you see at the download center is the windows update version, at this point for you to make sure you have the latest version please download the driver manually and install it in your system, if during the installation you see that the version 10.18.10.xxxx is installing don’t worry because it is the same version.
About the issue with the Intel® driver update utility, please be aware that this issue has been report and hopefully a new version will come up soon to fix this problem.
