    I've got a DP35DP motherboard. I'm running W7 x64. I really wanted the desktop utilities because I like monitoring fans and temps. So I went ahead and installed the vista version of the management engine driver in vista mode and it installed without a problem. Most of the desktop utility engine functions work (not all). The monitor functions work without a glitch just like they used to under vista. The other functions that no longer work just appear disabled.

    Anyhow I am not getting the PCI Simple Communications Controller error or any other error in device manager. I'm assuming, from reading this thread, that its because the mgmt engine driver is installed.

    I have the DP35DP as well and the same PCI error. How do I run the install in compatibility mode?

    PCZero, Its been a while, still working great, but I think I used vista mode, if not it was XP. I would try vista and remember to take a restore point before you start just a safety measure.

    For all those with a 965 series Intel chipset, I was able to get the driver working. Intel doesn't list the Management Engine Driver under the drivers-for-965 list, but they do list it under Desktop Boards -> Q963 Express Chipset Boards.

    This driver is also compatible with the 965 chipset. Here is the link:
    Intel® ME: Management Engine Driver for Intel 963/965 Chipset-Based Desktop Boards

    Once you download it, you'll have to run in win WinXP compatibility mode (right-click the file once you download it, go to the compatibility tab, and select WinXP mode.)

    Worked for me, good luck.

    Solution for missing PCI Simple Communications Controller for Intel DP965LT (and a few other) motherboard and Windows 7 users:

    -> download this Intel Menagement Engine Interface driver:
    Intel® Desktop Board DQ963FX Intel® ME: Management Engine Driver for Intel 963/965 Chipset-Based Desktop Boards
    -> unpack it
    -> run program Setup.exe in Windows XP SP2 compatibility
    -> Missing PCI Simple Communications Controller will be instaled and replaced by Intel Menagement Engine Interface in System Devices

    It worked for me.

    Looks like it. Duplicate responses aren't at all uncommon by the nature of these boards. Dont let it throw you. Should just increase your confidence factor since there is agreement.

    Since I installed Win7 64 I have been trying to resolve that PCI Simple Communications Controller error for ages. Your solution worked but I did run into a problem at first. When I ran that program in XP mode as you instructed I received an error message that this system does not have the correct qualifications or something to that effect. On that same website there is a link to my motherboard and others with additional updates. I downloaded the file at the link "Intel Chipset Device Software for Intel Desktop Boards" and installed it. Then I ran the first file again as you instructed. That did the trick. Finally it's fix. Apparently I needed to update my system with that other file first. I spent a lot of time searching for that solution. There were always others experiencing the same problem but no fix. Thanks a million.

    I'm happy with the Intel software for now. But since it is now unsupported I was wondering if anyone has found any other 64 bit software that has the same monitoring and alerts. I've found a couple 64 bit apps that will read all of the fans speeds and temps, and actually do it without special drivers, but the background alerting function wasn't part of these applications. If anyone knows of 64 bit software with monitoring and alerts please let us know.
