    Intel RAID / RST USER INTERFACE?? [GUI] Windows 10? Where?


    gang I cannot find a download anywhere for the USER Console/GUI/UI for Intel RST [rapid storage technology] that is compatible with Windows 10? This is NOT a driver question - the driver [latest dated august and ONLY one certified for Windows 10 64 bit] is already loaded and presumably functioning correctly per device manager.
    What I need is the human interface because there are error messages in windows log indicating malfunction.
    The original GUI, that goes way back to '07 or so died in the transition to windows 10. will not load/run.

    when I search this topic I get nothing but driver builds. no GUI/App/Program - nada. There are a number of threads on the topic but no luck - all roads seem to point back to driver files.

    pls help if you can

    Drivers

    The driver includes the GUI as it installed on in my system tray.

    Least try your PC manufacturer's site for this ? This is mainly used for RAID setup and management, not sure it's needed for Windows 10 unless possibly using this mentioned. Where are you seeing these errors, might be missing other system drivers, possible SATA Preinstall drivers.

    no. not on HP site.
    like I said at outset - this ain't a driver question. all drivers for everything appear to be ok.

    the last GUI I can find is what was running just fine under Windows 7, dates back to 2008. The service won't run.
    tried to reinstall and get a reject saying 'wrong platform' -

    to the other point: there is only one package I see that is ok'd for windows 10 and it is really simple: just the drivers. unless there is another stash somewhere.
    the user interface is important. need the status, health, error reporting/alerts etc. this is raid 1, not zero

    When you install the driver, it will install the GUI as my notebook shipped with the driver but no GUI with Windows 7 and I recently installed the driver which came with the GUI in Windows 10. This is the one I used because the newer major version didn't support my chipset...

    On my Gigabyte site it is version 14.5.0.1081 for 64bit and is just the SATA controller drivers in zip file, that is it. Might tell you not used anymore or no new version GUI for Windows 10. Ones trying to use will get rejected. Be helpful if filled in system specs as much as you can or use Speccy post a screen capture, showing Windows 7 now under your name.

    i'll get on that Speccy assuming that system returns from its 'dark side of the moon' ...
    I kicked off a rollback this morning to Windows 7 [from 10] and its been "restarting" since. ....
    there ain't THAT much data on the system so I suspect the RAID driver may be giving it trouble.
    likely will have to start from zero and rebuild the whole thing.

    to the GUI, the Programs [x86] folder shows the app plainly. its a normal looking application with a few subfolders, dating back a couple years, around 20MB worth of files. I tried the windows 10 compatibility tools but nothing worked which didnt surprise me. The tray icon loads and looks normal until you actually try to DO something with the app, which invokes the GUI [iastorGUI.exe] which hangs, bails, and impressively leaves NO ERROR in the windows event logs... If I could figure out where I originally got that zip or msi or exe I think it would probably reinstall and work.

    aside from that, many report ill-behaved results under windows 10 with the latest Intel drivers [dated August]. it pounds the CPU erratically. I noticed on another forum some fishing about for a driver that works, of whatever vintage.
    system runs, does what you want it do, but I have no idea what the integrity of the mirroring is since the errant upgrade.

    Did you right click Start Menu -> Programs and Features, then Turn Windows Features on/off and make sure both NET Framework 3.5 and 4.6 are checked as the GUI requires that when I looked at Intel's website yesterday when you asked the question.

    Not sure if this was said, make sure to check for all system driver updates SATA controller, Chipset software drivers. As it is i have no clue to your system specs to help guide you, as far as i see for IRST GUI not for me as far as my board goes as it only provides the SATA controller drivers in the IRST package download.Just make sure everything is up to date for system drivers.

    it is really difficult to check all the drivers, but I updated to the "official" only windows 10 drivers that intel posts [only 1 thus far]. it didn't change anything really. still a lot of background traffic and the behavior of the gui is the same.
    Editorial comment: on other windows 10 installs with varying success, it appears that merely "update to the latest" is not good advice. some 'windows 10 approved' drivers loadable via windows update are downright dangerous. I found some of the best results to be had by using generic MS provided drivers. again unfortunately: once one loads a combination [what are the mathematical potential combinations of drivers in the system? infinite?], one cannot safely prevent windows 10 update from overwriting your hard work. ask me how I know. leaving such a bomb in the hands of a non-technical user is an error

    for anyone reading this now or henceforth the specific package version was 10.1.0.1008. some assembly of that vintage had the full GUI and I'm beginning to think that was THE only one ever released. they may have obfuscated it as when I websearch that version, all I see on the intel site is the barebone driver packaging. none with gui.
    also I misstated the executable name above... the correct is IAStorUI.exe.
