Thank you for the reply. I understand how the intel driver download website works, with respect to selecting drivers for specific products and operating system versions. My point is that the website lists the latest drivers for the wireless and Bluetooth for my operating system, but the latest Bluetooth driver will not install. It appears to be a bug or else there is some other undocumented requirement.
The driver should install if the OS and adapter are supported with that release. It seems your issue may be different from the one originally mentioned in this thread.

Intel® Download Center). This driver installs properly. The previous version doesn't seem to be available anymore. I think the problem was with the driver. Nothing else changed.
Also, the driver update utility is recommending the latest wireless and Bluetooth drivers to install, but it's still confused about the versions that are actually installed:

The versions that are installed are the following:
Here is what add or remove programs is showing:
Here is what the device manager is showing:
Intel could make life a lot easier if consistent file naming and driver version numbers were used.
The Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Bluetooth® technology that you have currently installed are up to date.
We appreciate your feedback about Intel® Driver Update Utility and will notify the proper resources about the mismatch and reporting, so this can be fixed.
