As I have already mentioned >here<, Intel had recently released an Intel Smart Connect Technology (ISCT) driverpack v126.96.36.19936 WHQL, which contains the latest ISCT drivers v1.1.0, but with faulty *.INF file entries:
- Due to a wrong designation of the OS architecture (“NTx86” instead of “NTamd64”) the 64bit driver cannot be manually installed, not even by using the “Have Disk” option.
- The entered driver version (1.0.11) is wrong, the correct driver version is v188.8.131.52.
- The entered driver date (10/31/2013) is wrong, the correct date would be 10/03/2014.
Here is a screenshot with the related lines of the original file named ISCTD.inf file:
Since these faulty Intel Smart Connect Technology drivers are the latest and probably best, I have modded them by correcting the related INF file entries.
Here are the download links:
Intel Smart Connect Technology drivers (driver signature refreshed at 10/28/2015):
- >32bit Intel Smart Connect Technology Driver v184.108.40.206 mod & signed by Fernando< (>MIRROR<)
- >64bit Intel Smart Connect Technology Driver v220.127.116.11 mod & signed by Fernando< (>MIRROR<)
- To benefit from the driver’s digital signature I recommend to import the related Certificate (has only to be done once!) before trying to install the driver according to the guide you can find within the start post of >this< thread.
- Contrary to the original drivers these modded ones can be installed manually from within the Device Manager (even the 64bit variant). Furthermore the Device Manager will show the correct version (v18.104.22.168) and the correct date of their compilation (10/03/2014). Supported are all Windows Operating Systems from Win7 up.
- Since these drivers have been digitally signed by me at 10/28/2015, they can be installed the normal way (no forcing by using the “Have Disk” option and no disabling of the “Driver Signature Enforceent” required).
By the way: These modded drivers are running fine with my Z97 system!
Any feedback is much appreciated!
