The following applications are being EOL’d (end-of-life). They will no longer be available starting with Intel® RST version 18.0 currently targeted for release in Q2 2020:
- Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) User Interface (SetupRST.exe)
- Intel® Optane™ Memory User Interface (SetupOptaneMemory.exe)
The Intel® Optane™ Memory and Storage Management Hardware Support Application will continue to be available from the Microsoft Store* to deliver monitoring and management capabilities for the Intel® RST storage subsystem. Note: The Intel® RST Driver is required to be installed before installing the application, read more here.
Q: Why will these applications no longer be supported?
A: The Intel® Optane™ Memory and Storage Management Hardware Support Application combines premium Intel® RST capabilities into one easy-to-use application. It will take the place of the EOL'd applications. Future development work will focus on the health and capabilities of this application.
Q: Will these applications continue to be available to download on downloadcenter.com?
A: No new versions of these applications will be available to download on downloadcenter.com. Alternatively, the Intel® Optane™ Memory and Storage Management Hardware Support Application to manage volumes must be downloaded from the Microsoft Store. See full requirements here.
Q: Can I just go to the Microsoft Store and download the application now?
A: Yes, it's available now. See the full requirements here.
Q: Can I continue to use the Intel® RST and/or Intel® Optane™ memory application? Or, should I remove before installing the Intel® Optane™ Memory and Storage Management application?
A: We recommend that you only use the Intel® Optane™ Memory and Storage Management application to get the best support and new features and capabilities.
To remove these applications, follow these steps:
- Back up all data.
- Disable acceleration with Intel® Optane™ memory. (See how.)
- Restart the computer.
- Uninstall the application.
