Hi there
I managed via a fix to the inf file to load the INTEL HD display drivers - but I cant seem to get the output to use the "Virtual Desktop" to expand to two monitors like I could for W7 and XP.

The file you need to change so the package will install on W8 is this one (attached) replace the same named file in the GRAPHICS folder

The other parts of the driver including acceleration etc work fine. View attachment igdlh64.zip

Hi all again now fixed -- you need to let Windows update the .NET Framework (don't know why or care but after the update driver works fine for multiple displays again).
