    The Nahimic 1.4.4 app is locked down to specific subsystem IDs as it is an exclusive feature for newer MSI laptops. The application makes a check against a .DLL file to validate you are one of the supported systems at launch, and there is not currently a known workaround. The new Nahimic adds support for the mirror driver. The behavior you described indicates you are not one of the supported models, so you can downgrade using @hacktrix2006 installer to the 1.4.2 version. Make sure you disable auto updates in the Microsoft store or it will auto-magically upgrade you again to 1.4.4 and you will have to repeat the process to downgrade.

    @epguy3 There is will add the files to the next driver release, there is no real point in repacking the installer. It will simply confuse everyone.
    As for the Nahimic 3 V1.4.4 issue i get the same thing too but its to do with an ID check within the latest version of Nahimic's UWP which then uses a .dll file to check on with the Subvendor ID's that are allowed to use it, this is due to an Exclusivity deal it would seem with MSI.

    However i am working on a new installer script that is being actively tested right now.

    Edit: Side note, out of that pack the only thing that is new is just the Extension files, Mirror and SWC drivers are the same in the new installer right now.

    For what is worth, I "tested" your beta installer (8959.1) after upgrading Win10 to 2004 and it works just as good as it did on 1909.

    Interestingly enough, I received this driver update through Windows update today. Is that where you got it as well?

    I already have the file, just waiting on my compile for router firmware to finish so I can run some tests before getting sorted for the new installer.

    it may have been available thru WU but not yet listed from MS update catalog as MUC still has the 1.7.2 version and not the newer 1.8.1 version (ms may post it there later this month)

    the WU link may get recorded onto a local windows update log file or event viewer file

    try using "powershell get-windowsupdatelog" command in powershell cmd prompt & view the log file in notepad to get the actual link from MS
