Windows 7: Windows 7x64 Pro, ASUS Z97-P Boot/Logon error: "xxxxxxLog.iniis lost"

Windows 7x64 Pro, ASUS Z97-P Boot/Logon error: "xxxxxxLog.iniis lost"

I have started a new thread since it is a long time since this error was discussed.
Below is a simple way to supress the error and somequestions as to why/what MEI is perhaps miss-installed and what it does.

I have just installed windows on an ASUS Z97-P andafter a number of tribulations I began to get the error:-
at Boot and Logon. xxxxxx are numeric digits. Theerror is displayed by a process, "ASUSSetup", in Task Manager which is killedwhen the error is acknowledged.
This problem seems to date back to 2010 and perhapsbeyond. Staring at the message I guessed that there is a format error in it. Itshould read:-
C:\User\User -User\AppData\Local\Temp\xxxxxxLog.ini islost.
There may be a number of similar files in c:\.........\temp\ namedxxxxxxLog.ini. They contain the address of the ASUS MEI driver (managementengine interface), for example:-


The file causing the error will not be there, so copyone of the others and call it xxxxxxLog.ini
Be sure to check that the folder:-
MEI_win7-8-8-1_VER10001204_1-5M is in C:\windows\ orwhere ever that folder exits.
The error should not now occur.
This may be considered less dangerous than editing theregistry.
I do not have any idea why these .ini files are in thetemp file, vulnerable to deletion. They could be made “read-only” I suppose.Also, I do not know what the MEI is supposed to do. If it is an interface Iwould expect an application to be provided somewhere. For example the Intelfolder in “start|all Programs|Intel“ which contains a Rapid Storage TechnologyApp.

Does anyone know the answers as to why MEI isapparently miss-installed and where is the interface rather than “ad hoc” edit in the registry?
