Issue with Intel(R) Trusted Execution Engine Interface in Windows 10 x64


I already checked out the other issues about Intel Trusted Excution Engine Interface, but I'm not sure if it's the same case.


In devices manager, that device appears with an error, and its details say:




That device is in version (11/10/2015), however, in ASRock drivers say "Intel Trusted Execution Engine versión:"


Shall I uninstall my and go back to


At this time, I tried to:

  • Uninstall it and let Windows to regenerate it.
  • Try to update, but it was impossible.
  • And reinstall with TXE from this website, but I'm not sure if I did it well
  • Throught Windows update, PC is totally updated but the issue continues.
  • And other devices are updated too.


(Note: I just mentioned ASRock because they offer an specific version and I don't know if it's better go back in TXE to solve the issue).


Finally, for more info, these are my desktop PC specs (Thanks in advance):

Copying my response from the other forum:


  • First of all, regarding the TXT feature's version numbers, it is easy to get confused. There are firmware version numbers (like that, software package version numbers (like that and there could also be driver versions numbers. In the case of features that involve firmware running on a microcontroller (like the Management Engine) within the chipset, do not worry about version numbers not matching (they rarely ever will). What is important is that much of the firmware running on these microcontrollers is updated along with the BIOS. So, when you start to see a problem involving a feature like this, the first thing you should do is make sure that you are running the latest available BIOS for your motherboard (or laptop).


  • Secondly, there are three possible sources for updates for features like this, your motherboard (or laptop) manufacturer's download page, Intel's download pages and Windows Update. If your motherboard (or laptop) is still under warranty, then you should be running the version of the software that is available on the motherboard (or laptop) manufacturer's downloads page. If an update is installed by Windows Update, you know that (in theory) this update was released with foreknowledge of your manufacturer, so this is ok. You should only be loading drivers, etc. from the Intel download pages if all other sources have been exhausted (which will obviously be the case if you are off-warranty). While it does not apply here, laptop owners who need drivers for intel HD Graphics should always be looking to your laptop manufacturer for these drivers. If they have customized these drivers (for special hardware features and especially for laptops that have a second graphics chip), using the standard drivers from Intel could cause you all sorts of problems (features not working, laptop sucking too much power, etc.). If you need a newer version because of a particular issue and this driver has been modified by your laptop manufacturer, then they *must* provide this version. If they cannot or (more often the case) will not provide an update, you need to at least make sure that you find out, from this manufacturer (not Intel), how the generic drivers from Intel will work on their hardware (and BIOS and software) solution.


  • Finally, for this particular situation, I suggest that you uninstall the package and then install the latest versions of the (1) Chipset Device Software (a.k.a. INF Update) package, (2) Intel ME Software and then (3) the TXT feature package. Again, get all three of these from your board (or laptop) manufacturer's download site. If there is a BIOS update available, install it first!


Hope this helps,
