Downloading Software FAQ

How do I download or update my software?
To download your Intel® software product files:
  1. Sign in to the Intel® Registration Center.
  2. From the list of products on the main page, choose the product you want, and then select Download.
  3. From the Choose a Version drop-down menu, select the desired version. The versions are ordered first by major release, and then by update number from newest to oldest.
  4. In the Choose a Download Option section, select the blue button that best suits your needs (there may be multiple options). For older product versions, you may need to select a box indicating consent to an agreement to see the buttons.

Alternatively, if you have Intel® Software Manager installed, you can update your installed products by selecting Update in the Downloads tab.

Note that you can only access new versions of the product until your support expires.

What is the difference between a customizable package and a full package?

With a customizable package, you download and install exactly what you need. You can choose all component products from the full package or just a subset. In addition, you can install the package immediately while connected to the internet or download the customized package and install it later without requiring internet connection.

The full package is intended for cross-platform use. For example, you can download the full Linux* package on a Windows* system and transfer it to the intended platform. The full package download cannot be customized, but you can still choose the configuration you want during installation.

Where can I download the Intel® Software License Manager for my floating license?

  2. Select the product that has a floating license.
  3. On the Subscription history page, select the orange Download button next to Intel® Software License Manager.
  4. From the Choose a Version drop-down menu, select the operating system for the license manager installation. This can be different than the operating system the software product will be installed on.

What should I do if my .tgz file downloads as a .solitairetheme8 file?

If your Windows* system has Microsoft* Solitaire Collection installed, your system may automatically assign the .solitairetheme8 extension to .tgz files. Downloads for Linux* systems use the .tgz extension, so they can sometimes be mistakenly reassigned.

You can resolve this issue by renaming the file and changing the extension back to .tgz.

To prevent any reoccurrence, change the file association on your Windows* system or uninstall the Solitaire Collection.
