Intel® NUC, Intel® Compute Stick and Intel® Compute Card
You can use the utility to update all drivers on an Intel® NUC, Intel® Compute Stick or Intel® Compute Card. If you want to get the latest drivers for these products from another PC, you can use the Search Manually feature.
Are all Intel® drivers and software updates offered by the tool?
No. The Intel® Driver & Support Assistant (Intel® DSA) offers a subset of the drivers and software available on Download Center. View a list of which drivers and software are excluded.
Where can I download the Intel® Driver & Support Assistant?
This application does not support older versions of Internet Explorer*. We recommend using Chrome*, Firefox*, or Internet Explorer v11 browsers. Intel® Driver & Support Assistant should work on Windows Vista*, but we do not do any validation on that OS.
I can't use Intel® Driver & Support Assistant when there is a newer version available. Why is that?
Upon release of Intel DSA v3.0, there is a known issue affecting some systems when upgrading from Intel DUU v2.9 to Intel DSA v3.0. If this issue affects your upgrade from Intel DUU to Intel DSA, try these steps:
Uninstall Intel DUU or Intel DSA via Control Panel.
Delete all old log files from C:\ProgramData\Intel\DSA.
You must manually download and install the latest version posted, if:
You have Intel DUU version 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124, released between August and December 2016
You tried running Intel DUU but received a message similar to the one shown below
The auto-upgrade feature was disabled
Go to Control Panel and uninstall the Intel® Driver Update Utility.
Return to Intel DSA and download the latest version. The latest version enables the auto-upgrade for future versions.
Until Intel DSA goes to a truly auto-update version, this might impact some updates to installed versions, and Intel DUU users who use the old application.
Do I need to uninstall my previous Intel® DUU version to install Intel® DSA?
For most users, there is no need to uninstall older Intel DUU versions. New Intel DSA should easily install over the old Intel DUU program. If you do experience issues updating, refer to the previous question above.

There are several reasons why Intel DSA may be blocked on your computer.
If you are using the Microsoft Edge* browser, please see our FAQ below on resolving issues with this browser.
If you are going through a proxy to access the internet, you may need to configure it to allow access. You can check your proxy configuration by following these steps:
Open the “Internet Options” control panel, which can be found in the Windows* Start Menu.
Select the “Connections” tab at the top of the window, and then select the “LAN settings” button near the bottom of the window.
If you are on a company network, and “Automatically detect settings” or “Use automatic configuration script” are selected, then you will need to contact your network administrator to allow connections to localhost. If you are not on a company network and these settings are selected, you will need to manually configure your proxy device to allow connections to localhost.
If the “Use a proxy server for your LAN” checkbox is selected, make sure the “Bypass proxy server for local addresses” is checked. Click the “Advanced” button, and in the “Exceptions” text area, add “127.0.0.1”, and then select “OK” and “OK”.
If you are using the Firefox* browser and connecting to the internet through a proxy, you may need to change your settings. From the menu in Firefox, choose “Options” and then select the “Settings” button in the “Network Proxy” section. If “Manual proxy configuration” is selected, please ensure that the following entries are included in the “No Proxy for” text area: “localhost, 127.0.0.1”.
If you are running security or firewall software that may block network connections, you will need to configure your software to allow access to the Intel® Driver & Support Assistant. Please refer to your security software vendor for instruction on how to manage this access.
