Apple Thunderbolt 2 display to an Intel NUC (NUC8i5BEH) via the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port

Has anyone had any success connecting an Apple Thunderbolt 2 display to an Intel NUC (NUC8i5BEH) via the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port using an Apple TB3 to TB2 dongle? Intel support seems to think this will work, but I've had zero success getting the NUC to recognize/start the display. I have all drivers on the NUC up to date via the Intel Support Driver app. Any help by anyone in the community would be much appreciated.

Hello everyone, Please bear in mind that Intel* does not recommend the use of any kind of adapters. This is because we cannot test all of them, so we cannot guarantee that these are going to work.

ANosr, there wasn't a clean resolution. In the end I acquired a standard monitor to use on the Intel NUC - my Thunderbolt 2 display is being used by my MacBook Pro (fall, 2015). In the end my home desk setup is more to my liking with the duel monitors/computers/OSs than my original plan. Sorry I couldn't provide a better resolution for you.

I want to connect my Thunderpolt 2 Audio Interface to a NUC11, it doesn't work. It crashes Windows and NUC restarts indefinitely with booting issues until I disconnect it... How sad !!!!!!
