Lenovo Vantage keeps showing Intel Management Engine Interface as a critical update

2021-07-02, 22:22 PM

Lenovo Vantage keeps showing Intel Management Engine Interface as a critical update though it is installed already.

 

Here's the problem.  The Intel Management Engine components are at level 2112.15.0.2221 while the Intel Management Engine Interface driver is at level 2108.100.0.1053 .

 

Lenovo Vantage sees the Intel Management Interface driver level is not the same as the Intel Management Engine components level and therefore keeps showing the Intel Management Engine Interface as a critical update.  This is incorrect.  If you read the readme for this update you will see that the levels are supposed to be what i have listed.

 

The problem is with Lenovo Vantage.

 

Please correct Lenovo Vantage to recognize that the Intel Management Engine Interface is supposed to be at 2108.100.0.1053 and not 2112.15.0.2221 .  The level 2112.15.0.2221 applies to the Intel Management Engine components and not to the Intel Management Engine Interface.

 

Thank you.

Hi 

Issue is fixed,  Vantage no longer push Intel management engine interface driver, please verify on your system. 

If it is solved, could you mark my reply as answer? 

Thank you

Hi magic71121,

 

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Vantage?

I experience the same problem on my TP E570.

I agree with your opinion, and am eager for Lenovo team to fix the issue. 

Thank you in advance.

Hi magic71121 Paper Tape,

 

I was having exactly the same issue and have previously had similar issues that I find very frustrating.

 

The workaround that I found for this issue was to do the following;

  • Download the update directly from the Lenovo website rather than use Lenovo Vantage or System Update 5
  • Run the downloaded file (I ran it as an "Adminstrator" but I am not sure if this is what made the difference.
  • After rebooting my laptop, I ran the "Check for Updates" using System Update 5

After performing the above steps, the update appears to have been recognised and does not show up as being an outstanding "Critical Update".

 

Hopefully this works for you too, but I agree that Lenovo probably should have picked this up in testing and resolved before sending out.... especially if they are calling it a "Crital Update".

Your workaround does not work as Lenovo Vantage still comes up with this critical update.  Lenovo Vantage needs to recognize the correct level for the Intel Management Engine Interface and not the level for the Intel Management Engine components.  This is the problem.  Even in Lenovo Vantage the additional information shows this.

Hi  YK_home and everyone
I just replicated this problem on my E570 system, I guess there is something wrong at the driver ID identifying in Vantage update pushing, I already asked internal team to check this issue, we will fix it ASAP.

Thank you.
