WiFi Link 5100 Update fails

2010-09-04, 16:40 PM

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

I have a Lenovo 4446-25U G530 running XP Pro and equipped with WiFi Link 5100 AGN with driver 12.2.0.11 11-17-2008. 

 

When I attempt to update my system using the Lenovo Care, I get a message to update my WiFi driver to 12.0.0.73.  During installation I get an error message:  c:\PROGRA~1\Lenovo\SYSTEM~1\session\52wi07ww\Vista\Docs\Icons\Thumbs.db  Access is denied.  At this point installation is halted at 80%.  When I click OK on the "Access is denied" window, the installation continues until I get a messge from System Update stating "1 Package was successfully downloaded and installed" 

 

When I view installation history, the updated driver (12.0.0.73) is listed as having been installed, however when I check for system updates using Lenovo Care, it continues to show the WiFi Link 5100 driver as a pending update.  Apparently the installation is not sucessful.

 

Is this a Vista only update that I should ignore?

 

Regards,  Lou

check the file and delete it, then try again.

also, you may need to run lenovo care with admin privileges ( right click and select "run as admin" )

I deleted the file and ran lenovo care with admin privileges.  This time I did not get the error message.  The update seemed to run as it should, however I have the same problem as before.  Lenovo care system update still shows I need to update my WiFi driver to 12.0.0.73 while my installation history shows it was updated today. 

 

How do I check my system status to see which portion of Lenovo care is in error?

I could not find an error log for lenovo care.  How do I check my system status to determine what driver versions are installed?

OK, so now I've confirmed the update did not work--I am still running 12.2.0.11 driver dated 11-17-2008.  Is it not possible to update the driver, or is it just not worth the trouble?

Download the driver manually from the webpage. Uninstall current one, restart your PC, and then install the new one.

if your device works properly ( i think it does ), ignore it.

if you insist to update it, try this.
