Re: AMD Display Optimization?

Clicking on the links gets some negative comments from people who have tried to install these things...not able to install, etc.

No dates on the apps...so hard to tell how long they have been there.

Re: AMD Display Optimization?

Linked an article (currently in moderation) from 3rd party in Jan. This part,

I installed 19.2.3 last night, multiple restarts and a shutdown, I don't get the app pop up.

Maybe windows overrode your install ?

Been reading some not good things about these UWD drivers (Intel and Nv.). Once your on them they're not easy to remove and/or can no longer(supposedly) use or install regular drivers.

Haven't researched it fully( but I opted out/chose not to install the intel ones on my new cpu).

Wonder if the recent threads on driver installs freezing/fails are related to UWD.

Re: AMD Display Optimization?

I have no real idea how the AMD Optimization software was installed but guess it was the latest driver - I uninstalled those tools a few minutes ago.

UWD drivers are much smaller in size than traditional installers -  my Realtek Audio UWD is ~30MB in size (download) while the traditional Realtek driver is ~250MB+ to get it. The only caution about UWD is uninstall the old traditional driver first then install the UWD - no install over. So far not seen any problems.

Re: AMD Display Optimization?

Intel has been notifying users, that go to the site, of the pending changes for quite awhile. I wonder if users that have installed these through WU are having conflict issues.

What is changing?

Microsoft is changing the way that hardware drivers work on the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), Windows® 10 (and later), and Microsoft Windows* Server 2019 (and later). Hardware running on these operating systems can use Windows DCH Drivers. Intel will begin distributing Windows DCH Drivers for its products beginning in November 2018.

How do these changes affect driver updates for Intel products?

As of November 2018, driver updates for Intel products on these operating systems will begin transitioning to Windows DCH Drivers. After a driver has been updated to a Windows DCH Driver, it's possible to roll back to a legacy driver; however, rolling back isn't recommended as it involves a complex process that could result in system instability. This system instability is especially pertinent to graphics drivers. You can find more information on this subject.

How do I load Intel® driver updates?

You can load most Intel® driver updates using the Intel® Driver and Support Assistant (Intel® DSA), which will:

  • Detect your machine’s configuration.
  • Identify your current Intel® drivers.
  • Notify you of any drivers that need updating.
  • Give you the opportunity to update those drivers.
NoteThe Intel® DSA tool doesn't currently work for Windows* Server or Ethernet products. For these customers, and customers who prefer to manually identify and load a specific driver, these customers can use Download Center.

More detailed information on DCH Windows Drivers can be found on the Microsoft site.

Re: AMD Display Optimization?

Maybe it auto installed from MS store, windows reliability history monitor might show where it came from ?

There is no search function in this monitor?

I checked the Feb but nothing in there.
