Deleting a manually added game from library does not delete performance profile from registry.

See attached. If it's not a bug, it is extremely unintuitive behavior. 

Manually adding a game, creating a custom performance profile, then deleting the game from your library in control center does not deactivate or delete the profile(s). This leaves no indication that I could find in control center that a custom profile was still in effect, and no obvious way to delete the profiles without regedit. 

I only discovered this behavior because it was causing a game to crash. It seems like removing a game should result in the removal of all attached information in the registry. These registry entries persisted through driver uninstall and reinstall as I was trying to resolve another issue (crashing in normal gameplay).

Hello @Zeebastion

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities and thank you for the 2 reports. In order to check this further, could you please provide some additional details?


1- Did this work fine before/expected at any moment? If yes, were there any recent hardware or software changes that might relate to the point when the issue started? (for instance, Windows®, driver, or software/game updates?)

2- Run the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) to gather more details about the system.

  • Download the Intel® SSU and save the application on your computer
  • Open the application, check the "Everything" checkbox, and click "Scan" to see the system and device information. The Intel® SSU defaults to the "Summary View" on the output screen following the scan. Click the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".
  • To save your scan, click Next and click Save.
  • Once you have saved the file (.txt file), please attach it to your reply.
  • To upload and attach a file, use the "Drag and drop here or browse files to attach" option below the response textbox.


Best regards,

I've had the laptop for a little less than a week. I just re-verified. Adding any program manually to your collection in intel command center, editing settings, and editing a profile creates a registry entry for that binary in Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intel\Display\igfxcui\3D

 

Deleting the program from the command center library leaves the registry entry. In my case this was causing a game to crash at launch. I had to use regedit to delete the key, when it seems like deleting the program from the intel command center library should remove associated registry settings. 

 

After deleting the key, the game resumed crashing during gameplay instead of at launch. 

 

This might be intended behavior and not a bug, but I'm reporting it anyways as most users would not search their registries to see what adding a profile in intel command center did.  Attached is the requested SSU. 

I appreciate the response! Apart from a small number of games that used to run on my old HD 620 laptop I am very impressed with my 11th gen laptop.
