XTU on Windows 11

So, I just upgraded to Windows 11, but started getting this error:

Unable to start Intel Extreme Tuning Utility. If there is another performance tuning application running, you must close it before trying to start this application.

I am using XTU 7.5.3.3, which supposedly supports Windows 11, according to XTU Download page (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/17881/29183/intel-extreme-tuning-utility-intel-xtu....)

 

I tried uninstalling/reinstalling it, and I also followed this tutorial to remove it completely but I still get the same error message: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000032459/processors/processor-utilities-an...

Does anyone know how to fix this? It was working when I was on Windows 10.

Thanks in advance.

So the Intel support engineers can have more information about your system, Please download and run the Intel System Support Utility (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows- ) for Windows. Select all data categories and then have it generate a report. Next, have the tool Save the report to a text file (don't try to use the Submit capability; it doesn't work). Finally, using the Drag and drop here or browse files to attach dialog below the edit box for the body of your response post, upload and attach this file to the response post.

Hello rodrigoyasuda,  

  


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   

  


In order to better assist you, please provide the following:  



1. Was this issue present on Windows 10?


2. Is there another overclocking tool installed on your system? Perhaps a preinstalled toll from Alienware.


3. Was the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU) working on Windows 11 with the previous river version?


4. Can you share the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU) logs?

- Steps: Disk> tab view> hidden item check>program data> intel> Intel XTU> ctrl C> paste on the deskstop>right click on the file>send to> compressed zip>send

I have the exact same issue with Intel XTU now I have upgraded to Windows 11 on my Lenovo Legion 7 with a 11800H.

 

It used to work now problem in Windows 10 before I installed Windows 11

You know that XTU only supports X and K processors, and not H processors, right?

You know you're wrong right? It worked on the 11800H no problem.

It may have worked.   That was then.   This is now.  And, you need to learn how to read.

I said XTU only supports X and K processors, not that it would not work.   Read the supported processor list on the XTU download page.

While you are there, note this:  "Intel XTU may or may not work on unsupported processors."

 

So, you are wrong in using an unsupported processor.

You're wrong again. I just went back to Windows 10 and it works no problems. This is NOW.

You might want to stop embarrassing yourself and get your facts straight before you embarrass yourself again.

1. Was this issue present on Windows 10?

No, it was working perfectly fine. It stopped working when I upgraded to Windows 11.

 

2. Is there another overclocking tool installed on your system? Perhaps a preinstalled toll from Alienware.

Yes, I have Alienware Command Center installed, but it is disabled. It was already installed when I was using W10 and XTU was working fine back then.

 

3. Was the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU) working on Windows 11 with the previous river version?

I was not using a previous version of Windows 11, I installed it when it was officially released. The first time W11 booted up it already showed the error.

 

4. Can you share the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU) logs?

- Steps: Disk> tab view> hidden item check>program data> intel> Intel XTU> ctrl C> paste on the deskstop>right click on the file>send to> compressed zip>send 

I attached the logs.

I also encountered this same issue yesterday after upgrading to windows 11.

but after uninstalling WSL2 and virtual machine platform this morning, my XTU is working fine now!!!

Well, uninstalling WSL2 would be really bad for me because I need it to work.

Also, on W10 I was using XTU with WSL2 installed, so I don't see why it wouldn't work on W11 as well.

For now,I guess the WSL2 on Win11 is the another performance tuning application running

Hello rodrigoyasuda, 

 

 

I would like to inform you that we tried to replicate the issue using:

 

- i9-9900k

- Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU), version 7.5.3.3

- windows 11 build 22000

 

However, we did not have the same problem (see picture attached). This issue seems to be caused by the second tool (Alienware Command Center), as a test, try uninstalling the Alienware Command Center and check if the issue persists.

Hello Deivid,

 

I tried uninstalling Alienware Command Center and the issue still persists.

Can you try replicating the issue by enabling Windows Subsystem for Linux and Virtual Machine Platform?

 

Thanks in advance.

Yesterday, when I enabled only Virtual Machine Platform on Win11 , the XTU stopped working again!!!
