    You should uninstall your graphics drivers and after pc restart try to run windows update, maybe there is a new drivers version from microsoft, cause like i said before, microsoft updated intels first gen graphics drivers, it includes opengl too, so maybe they updated some more drivers ?

    yea, I did removed the old intel driver using driver fusion in safemode. it left no native intel drivers in my laptop so it runs on non-native display (looks like 800x600 fully stretched). windows update was set to check for drivers but let me choose which to install, sumthin like that. installed custom cert installer provided in first post and installed this modded driver. fingers crossed and after successful restart, I now see my gui sitting on tray again! what a relief! big thanks to thread starter! not really bothered with little watermark since I can now customize my graphics settings in control panel. what'd you do to make gui work? I really thought it has something to do with my outdated .net 3.5

    With many thanks


    Just wanted to thank the original poster and driver mod fellow. Your work has enabled me to overcome a surprise that struck this morning, when trying to run the Avid 6.5.1 video editor which I carry around on my laptop for unexpected location editing. Your driver mod enabled this program, which wouldn't display moving pictures with the Windows 8 Microsoft driver, to work again. Company policy dictates our laptops and operating systems; my job involves a little more accuracy on the part of video drivers than the company IT department is able to think about!

    This is a Toshiba Satellite C660 device on Windows 8 Pro, running the Intel Express G45 chipset with a Core Duo (possibly) processor. I followed the instructions on the first post, downloading the driver from the link, and the certificate mod also along with the test-message removal program. All I did was follow instructions. Windows Update is switched to "optional" at all times but I religiously install all security updates. The desktop background still has the test-message overlay (the removal program stated "success"), but no program suffers from it, including the editor.

    So the job got done, and IT will see my solution (your solution) later and I'll deal with it from there onwards. THANK YOU. Got a PayPal?

    Now here's my feedback after using it for quite a while. Despite the fact that I finally managed to control the 3d graphics settings in control panel, I noticed that the game I am playing (soulcraft from windows store) before I installed this driver lags noticeably. It runs between 21-28 fps compared to 29-35 fps when using intel gma driver with modified inf only (I mean, that part where ; no install on Windows 8, was replaced and nothing else was modified, even intelgfx gui is not working). I tried running Bubble Blast 2 and the lag is very noticeable. Now opera and chrome lags a bit with smooth scrolling enabled, even in light webpages like google search, so I think this is not app-specific but system wide. My onboard graphics is intel gma 4500mhd. Thank you in advance!

    @Adam No paypal, the thanks you gave is enough. It's feels great helping people
    @TalaPantas I added registry key to the driver which overwrites the original registry key installed by the windows driver which disabled the gui. And I can't do much about the lag. I don't have a laptop with the series 4 to test new drivers with anymore. (and I'm pretty sure the Series 4 graphics weren't that powerful in the first place.)

    If it would not be too much for you, can you show us the location of modified registry keys to get igfxui to work? I'm just kind of interested to knowing it nothing else (im a script kiddie and i'd love messing with it XD), but it's really ok if you won't and yea, 4500MHD s*cks really really bad and all, but at least it allows me to play some cool indie 3D games run by unity engine, though not here in windows 8 since i can't bear the lags and frame skips compared to running it in windows 7.
    i always know someone somewhere is there to help. really glad i came into the right place and found the right person XD
    hoping for your continuous support and more power
    big thanks XDleader555!

    This is the setting in the inf I found that disabled the CUI (When set to 1, it is disabled. I set it to 0 to enable it)
    HKR,, CUINotRequired, %REG_DWORD%, 1

    I'm not sure of the specific registry though.

    strange i cant find that line in the driver for 4 Series i just downloaded from here http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...&DwnldID=22166 . is that from zip or exe or i dont get the right download link ?


    Click image for larger version

    i tried searching the entire inf from your mod for "CUINotRequired"
    and i got 2 hits:

    [DisableCommonUserInterface_AddSwSettings]
    ;If this Registry key is set to 1 then CUI will not Loaded.
    HKR,, CUINotRequired, %REG_DWORD%, 0

    [DisableCommonUserInterface_DelSwSettings]
    HKR,, CUINotRequired

    these lines does not seem to be included in the driver i just downloaded from above link. will try to copy/paste these lines and mess up with it at the moment

    It's not there by default. So when you install the driver the registry is never changed to 0. It stays at 1. That's why the CUI is disabled by default.
