NUC5i7RYB: SM Bus controller driver missing: install Intel chipset driver: platform is not supported

I have a NUC5i7RYB, running on Windows 10 professional (build 19042.746).

I performed a fresh installation of the OS last weekend successfully. At least... yesterday I discovered that Device manager reports that the SM Bus controller driver is missing:

"The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) There are no compatible drivers for this device. To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver."

So I ran the Intel Driver and Support assistant: 

"Your Intel® drivers and software are up to date."

Uninstalling and (automatically) reinstalling (any) driver did not work either. Then I investigated further and Intel recommends the following:

"How to fix it
Download and run the Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility so Windows* properly recognizes the SMBus controller."

After downloading, extracting and running it as administrator, I unfortunately receive the error:

Attached you'll also find an Intel system scan and log file.

Please help me to resolve this issue and many thanks in advance.

Hi @Spartannl 

1. This is the Download Page where you may find all the drivers for your NUC.

2. Download and install the Chipset Device Software.

3. Download and install the Management Engine Driver.

4. Reboot your NUC.

After installing both exe files and a reboot, from device manager:

So the device is not listed any longer in Device manager, hence the issue has been resolved.

Many thanks Leon!
