    Incompatible Driver Issue


    I am trying to update from Intel HD Graphics WDDM 1.1 to Intel HD Graphics WDDM 1.2. When I try to do it using device manager, it says it's not meant for my system (I'm on Windows 8 RTM). Is there a way to force install it?

    I am doing this in the hope of getting Minecraft to work.

    If it fails due to Win8, try changing the compatibility mode in properties (right click on program and select properties) to Win7.

    7, 8 whatever


    Yes, it is rather trivial to do on x86 but x64 you'd then need to sign the driver files or disable enforcement.

    Not sure precisely for Intel, but for AMD, you simply add NTx86.6.2 to the inf section header where the others are and then make sure the hardware ids have that in the header too. (For hardware ids section, just simply edit the existing .1 to a .2 instead.)

    When i try to install those drivers, it says it's not for my version of Windows (the drivers are for the Release Preview, but I'm on the RTM). How can I force install them?
    BTW: Kernel, I could not find a way to implement your method.

    Err, did you try the compatibility mode that I mentioned earlier?
    "If it fails due to Win8, try changing the compatibility mode in properties (right click on program and select properties) to Win7."

    Wait. Those were Win8 drivers, right? Something else must be going on. Are you using an graphics card for booting? Did you turn on the integrated Video for your chip in the BIOS (it will be normally turned off by default if there is a graphics card installed).

    The problem is the ones I downloaded were for Windows 8 RP. Even if I set compatibility to Windows 7, it won't install. And if I download the 7 drivers, it won't fix the Minecraft issue because they changed something up in Windows 8 that causes Minecraft not to run.

    "All of Intel's video cards are integrated. Expect varying rates of success."
    Hmm, sounds like Minecraft is not very robust in running various video drivers.
    try this. Otherwise, use Google to look for more answers using "minecraft windows 8 fix, intel"

    Didn't work, tried that and a lot of others. I'll google around and see if I can find anything else.
