Just as a note here, the link at the top of the page to download the SCS works fine, the link at the bottom gives a 16.9MB download that seems to be an incomplete versions of SCS. This is for SCS 8.0.

Hi erinn,

The problem is that the top link is for the entire package, whereas the bottom link is for the source kit only. This is confusing I agree! We'll fix this soon.

HMM..Link not fixed. I didn't even see the top one. I was starting to thing the docs for this were even more disorganized than I had orginally observed.

Kind regards,

@StockTrader - I had the same problem extracting the broken ACU.DLL file (7zip); you can download the full package from:

Extract and navigate to \IntelSCS\ACU_Wizard\

Launch the ACU_Wizard.exe and see the Intel AMT Configuration Utility .PDF included in that same directory.

On this page under "Introduction" you can also click the "Download the full Intel® SCS 8.1 package Here" link which will redirect you to direct link I posted above.

I'm just looking for a simple host based configuration (HBC) method so I can launch the AMT configurator from the localhost and enable Intel AMT 6.x/7.x from a couple PCs so I can use the Remote KVM capabilities.

I found RealVNC free (port 5900) combined with Radmin free w/ AMT functionality to be an excellent alternative to RealVNC Plus (paid software).

I found an easy way to enable Remote KVM was to download; then extract and run \Windows\Intel_AMT\Bin\KVM\KVMControlApplication.exe (copy three .dll files over from Bin64 into same directory if not on x86).

This link for Out of Box Configuration for KVM Remote Control came in handy too (see included .PDF and run kvm.hta:

My challenge is making it simple for SOHO users to enable Network Activation and Intel AMT SOL/IDER KVM without having them monkey around with manual bare metal configuration settings in the BIOS, etc while at the same time making it easy for me not to have to deploy crazy enterprise tools and mess around with IDEs/Visual Studio, Powershell, etc. just to do a simple setup on one or two PCs with vPRO KVM capabilities that I want to manage remotely.

Honestly, this should be a simple GUI application and wizard with quick setup guide that can easily be deployed locally to fully enable and configure Intel AMT 6.2 and up.

Why Intel makes it so convoluted to perform these simple tasks for small installations explains the slow adoption of this powerful technology.

I mean seriously; you should see the insane amount of documentation, forum posts, Google Searches, SDKs, etc. that I had to go through just to setup something that could be done in only 5 minutes; even for the relatively uninitiated!

Sorry if I ranted a bit but over two days messing around with this nonstop is enough to drive anyone insane...

Unless it's Intel's plan to enslave me; so far they're winning. :)

Please excuse my grammar/spelling. I really don't have the time to be writting this post anyway but I thought I'd share in hopes of saving some other poor soul the agony of deploying Intel vPro AMT.
