Indeed. this is the very poor information Microsoft gives about the piece of software.
I would appreciate additional information by AMD.
This update always fails to install on my machine - so far I had 5+ attempts to install it..
Honestly I fear an attack - or MS miss-configuration of the updates - behind this.
First, I could not find any Info on an Update from AMD.
Second, before I already got some updates (security), which are back from 2012. Suspicious!
So maybe the update systems has been compromised. But this is speculation.
I installed it, but I hope its nothing bad
What is the driver version number you got installed?
It's in the device manager/ system devices/ AMD SMBus
Date - 18-01-2015
Driver version - 184.108.40.206
Hmm, this is the original (default) AMD SMBus driver version from 2015 - the same version anyone gets installed and I have here without update. I really wonder what is going on at MIcrosoft?
Here is my (failed) update history
Maybe your version was corrupt.
I suspect the driver fails to install here coz it's not a newer version.
core question is why winupdate install (tries) unnecessary drivers which are already installed (working) and same version too. I got a few more drivers winupdate tried to install but failed - I got newer drivers of those already installed.
Looks to me MS is confused..
I even don't have this Driver. There is just an ATI relation.
Hello , I am the original poster of the question. I still don't have installed the update.
The current installed version of the AMD SMB driver is (16/03/2011) 220.127.116.11 . I see that most posters mention newer versions.
Is it then safe to install de update recommended by Microsoft ?
Yes. It's easy to reverse if you need to, just roll back to previous driver in Device Manager.
the matter is MS still updates this regardless already up to date @ our machine
