    Can I change the dates of the Intel(R) Chipset "Driver"?

    Hello everyone,

    I am facing a rather puzzling issue:

    1. I clean installed Windows 10 (1703) on my HP ProDesk 400 G1 MT and Device Manager\System devices looked like this after a complete Windows Update:

    2. I downloaded from the manufacturer's (HP) site the latest version of the Intel Chipset Support (Device Software), i.e. Rev.A, allegedly released on Sep 21, 2017...

    3. After having successfully installed the package here is what I got:

    Which left me satisfied with the version, but NOT with the date...

    Having said that I do not understand how on earth occurred to HP to date a driver 18/07/1968, I wonder whether I could simply mod the dates to put things in line.

    Is it possible at all to get the right date (19/04/2017) and, if yes, is it sufficient to change the date in the relevant .inf files b/4 the installation or should the Setup and/or the corresponding .cat files be also modded?.. How?

    Thank you very much you for your attention.

    Apparently the culprit is not HP, but Intel and the explanation is here:

    Forum - RE: Intel Chipset Device (= INF files) - 23

    Be sure to read the following post by Fernando though.

    He has also done the modding job which can be found within the start post of the above thread:

    Forum - Other Drivers (= INF files)

    Thanks a lot to Fernando !

    As far as I am concerned, case closed.

  3.    02 Oct 2017 #3 is a terrific resource, and Fernando's modded USB drivers for USB 3.0 and 3.1 fix many issues that afflict modern Windows PCs. Thanks for sharing this resource and the explanation!
