    Installation Help - Wants to uninstall network port?


    This is a bit odd, in the Windows 8 upgrade adviser tool it said it was compatible but when I go to install Windows 8 I see this error.

    Intel(R) Network Connections 16.7.166.0
    Uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with Windows 8

    If I remove this I assume I will no longer have network connectivity, has anyone seen this before?

    Thanks!

    Did you try the Intel updater?

    I had to uninstall the driver, then reboot. It worked using the driver windows update had for it.

    However, after going through the complete install it gave me this error

    "A winpeshl.ini file is present, but no command were successfully launched. This could be caused by incorrect formatting or an invalid executable name. Please consult the documentation for more information"

    When you close the command prompt it reboots the PC. Right now I'm back in Windows 7 but they couldn't have made this install any more difficult..

    any ideas?
