I am trying to install the Intel Connectivity Performance Suite but keep getting an error says: No IPCS hardware was detected.

 

I have 12th-Gen Intel Core i7 12700H CPU

AX411 Wi-Fi Card with latest drivers installed

Latest Intel Management Engine installed 

Latest Windows 11 build installed 

 

What am I missing?

 

Thanks

Thank you, 

 

I am hoping to try out the Intel Double Connect Technology, seems the software is the only way to use it.

Hello @ssj92,

 

Many thanks for your patience on this matter.

 

Please perform the following steps and let me know of the outcome:

 

  1. Open a command prompt as Administrator.
  2. In the command prompt, type pnputil /enum-drivers >c:\icps.log and press Enter. (refer to attached 'cmd-1.png')
  3. Go to c:\ and open the icps.log, press Ctrl+F to bring up a search box. Type 'icps' in the search box to find all the 'oem#.inf' with icpsextension and icpsComponent. (e.g. oem277.inf, oem278.inf, oem96.inf) as shown in attached 'icpsext.png' and 'icpscom.png'
  4. Switch back to the command prompt, type the following command to completely uninstall all the drivers:

 

pnputil /delete-driver oem#.inf /uninstall

 

(as shown in attached 'cmd-2.png')

 

     5. Go to Add or Remove Programs to uninstall Intel Connectivity Performance Suite (refer to attached 'Add-Remove-Program.png')

     6. Reboot the system.

     7. (Optional) Reinstall the Intel® Connectivity Performance Suite, or downgrade to an older version if needed.

 

 

Best regards,

After doing a fresh install of Windows 11 the issue has resolved.      I believe the problem possibly started after installing Intel chipset drivers.

Hello ssj92,


The Intel® Connectivity Performance Suite is for specific systems, and it would be offered and pre-installed by the system manufacturer if the system supports the software.


According to the Alienware x14 Gaming web page (https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/alienware-x14-gaming-laptop/spd/alienware-x14-r1-laptop#tech-specs-anchor), Dell does not offer the ICPS software. Could you please check if your system has an Intel Evo or vPro sticker on it? These are examples of Dell Intel-Evo (https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/sr/laptops/intel-evo?appliedRefinements=38861) and Dell Intel-vPro (https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/sr/laptops/intel-vpro?page=2&appliedRefinements=38862,37680) devices.


Look forward to hearing back from you.

I don't have an Alien I have 2 new laptops. 

OMEN by HP Laptop 17t-ck100, 2022 version. originally came with Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX211 (2x2) and Bluetooth® 5.3 wireless card upgraded to AX411.

MSI Raider G76 12UE-456US 2022 version, with Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (2x2)

Same error on both "No IPCS hardware was detected" when installing Intel Connectivity Performance Suite

Do i have to do a clean install of W11?

so i bought an Intel Surface Pro 8 over the weekend. It is clearly Evo (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/d/surface-pro-8/8qwcrtq8v8xg?activetab=pivot:overviewtab) and this software will not install. Get the same error message. So now I have 3 new Intel based platforms meeting evo specs that this software will not install on.

Hello DJV, 


The Alienware comment was directed to ssj92, who is the post owner.


@DJV could you please confirm both of those laptops are either Intel vPro® or Intel® Evo™? They should have a sticker on that identifies them as either of those.


The Intel® Connectivity Performance Suite only works on specific Intel® Evo™ or Intel vPro® platforms with Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E (or greater) products, as described here https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/738623/intel-connectivity-performance-suite-for-intel-wireless-products.html

@Steven_Intel Steven, are you saying if I replaced an i9 13900K, on my homebuilt system, with a vPro i9 13000HK, the software would install and Double Connect would work?

The Windows 11 version does not have to be Enterprise and it does not require some type of special OEM configuration?

Thanks.
