One or more issues caused the setup to fail. Please fix the issues and then retry setup

Hello,

 

I tried to install the latest Wifi drivers for intel wireless adapters for Windows 11 from this link.

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/19351/windows-10-and-windows-11-wi-fi-drivers-for-i... 

 

WiFi-22.180.0-Drive64-Win10-Win11.exe is the one that I selected and tried to install but it keeps coming back with the error "One or more issues caused the setup to fail. Please fix the issues and then retry setup"

 

Because I have no idea what the issues are I don't know how to install it successfully. Could you help me to solve this problem? The current wifi adapter of my laptop is Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX201 160MHz.

I had this issue as well, after following another posts bad advice to uninstall the device and remove existing drivers to do a 'clean install'.  Now the installer exe doesnt work for me either.

I worked around it by locating the actual .INF files zip and doing a manual driver install (not using the exe).  See attached.

Thank you. I tried what you said and it worked. For everyone else, download the above zip file, extract it to your desired location, and then open up Device Manager. In the network adapters section, locate the wifi adapter. Its typically named in the format Intel(R) Wi-Fi (wifi version) (model). Basically, the device that is NOT labeled WAN miniport. Right click on it, select update driver, then select browse my computer for drivers and input the folder location where you extracted the zip. Hit continue and all should be well.

Just wanted to add my support for this solution. I too tried the expert recommended "clean install" with no luck. This method worked perfectly.

I too looked into the latest .exe driver file using 7zip to locate the .inf files, but I couldn't see them. What method did you use?

Can you post your method to extract the inf and sys files from the exe package? I've been able to open exe files in 7zip before but it seems that Intel has taken additional steps to prevent that.
