HDR Error: "Could Not Start Highlights"

I just tried using the highlights feature and it will not work either with the latest BETA 4335 or WHQL 4314.  I ensured I completed a clean install with each driver.  When I use the hotkey alt + h  I get the following error:

 

"Could Not Start Highlights - HDR mode enabled for selected monitor"  

 

I read in an earlier forum post this was resolved with a separate arc control driver in February 2023, but I don't see where I can just download that version of the Arc Control software.  Please advise on any potential solutions to allow highlights to work along with HDR.

 

Screen shot is attached for reference.

 

Thanks!

Hello, @filet-o-fish

 

Thank you for your time. I hope you are great. 

 

We replicated the scenario and we had the same issue, this is a known issue and thus for now expected behavior. Highlights and Capture functions do not work yet when HDR is enabled.  

 

We are working on a fix for this until it gets included in a next Arc Control update release, we don't have an ETA for now.  

 

Apart from this issue, I would like to know if there's anything else I can help you with, I will gladly assist you. 

 

Best regards,

Hello, @filet-o-fish

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.  

 

I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble using this hotkey, I will gladly assist you here. 

 

Does this issue happen with HDR disabled? 

 

Run this utility and attach the report so we can do research on this issue: 

 

Intel® System Support Utility for Windows.

Thanks for the help @Jocelyn_Intel.  I disabled HDR and the highlights feature in Arc Control works as intended (both by using the hotkey or manually selecting it within the software).  Highlights does not work with HDR enabled however.  Let me know how I can submit my SSU results directly vs posting here on the forum.
