Power Efficiency

It is possible for Intel Power Gadget 2.0 to crash Windows

I sorry if it is in the wrong forum, but it is my first time

I probably cannot reproduce the problem. I am just posting that it is possible for the Intel Power Gadget to invoke BOSD. I wonder if this crash dump is useful.

I am running window 7 64 bit Home Premium Service Pack 1

Here is a small snippet of windbg

Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : EzPwr.sys ( EzPwr+111e )

I have the latest version of Java installed but Power Checker quits silently.

Hello all,

My ISV tells me that he is able to start the Power Checker baseline test, but after 2 seconds after pressing start, with about 1/10th of the green status bar showing, the Power Checker quits silently.

The following log file that is generated seems to indicate that it is failing to run the Java runtime:

23-May-2012 09:46:38:Initialize and detect power source successfully

23-May-2012 09:46:40:User clicked Start button!

23-May-2012 09:46:55:Entering Method = DataCollectionThread.run()

Cannot install Intel Power Gadget 64-bit on Asus Zenbook.

Hello all,

I have an ISV who has downloaded the Intel Power Checker on his new Asus Zenbook, but needs to download the Intel Power Gadget to get it working. Unfortunately when he tries to download the 64-bit version he gets an error message saying:

There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.

He appears to be complying with the system requirements. Has anyone encountered this problem, or have a suggestion for a workaround?


How does one Enter the Competition for Power Efficiency Apps?

Over a period of last 1-1,5 Years we've developed and successefully tested our applications for Power Efficiency. All of our apps have been validated and have cleared the Power efficiency test. The applications are listed on Software Partner finder and we're Intel Software Partner Program Premier Elite Partners. I was wondering if anybody could lead me to submitting the apps for Competition.
Thanks a lot,
