Windows 7: Getting W10 Intel graphics drivers to run in W7

15 Sep 2018   #11

Win7 pro x64

I have not tried drivers past 4678 and do not plan to, as this system has been stable for a while. If I recall correctly I did get some minor graphics artifacts within lotus 1-2-3 (a poorly behaved 20 year old program I use a lot) when using ver 4678 which is why I went back to 4664. I just ran tests on my i7700k hd630 kaby lake-7th gen running driver 4664 and it passes all the xtu and ipdt tests without a hitch. But in my view, all that matters is stability in day-to-day performance. Stress tests stress a machine way beyond my daily needs, so I tend not to use them.

I see that the guy at videohelp is using my basic method, but his method is more involved and requires transferring igdumdin32. I would speculate that this is required for him because he is on a kaby lake-R 8th gen cpu, whereas I am on a 7th gen. The igdumdim32/64 files that are a part of 4678 were made prior to the 8th gen cpus, so presumably the newer versions are required for 8th gen cpus.

All told, I am confident that 7th gen kaby lake is rock solid on 4664 and 4508 within win7, but have yet to see evidence that there exists a method to get 8th gen running perfectly on win7. But good to see someone working on it.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

Tried using the 6286 components , but Intel Graphics Settings failed to run.
Anyone had success with using files more recent than 4860?

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

5068 update:

Was able to install the latest Intel Graphics Driver for W7 v15.45.5068 on a HD620 GPU (hwid 5916 & 280B) without having to modify the .dll files. Just add the appropriate entries to the respective inf setup files.
Can anyone kindly advise if the same procedure will work for the UHD620/UHD630/HD630 GPUs? Or is .dll modification a must?
Many thanks and best regards,
