Error: Not Supported processor type | Windows 10 |

Error while installing Intel 520
Are you getting Error that “This installation package is not supported by this processor type. Contact your product vendor.
Don’t worry there is nothing wrong with the machine and the software you are trying to install. In layman’s terms, I would say it is just a Windows 10 problem that they have started labeling the drivers and your computer needed an upgrade of Windows to required build or version which will match up or exceed the labeled version on the driver, you can check Windows 10 version typing “WINVER” in Cortana search.
If you want to understand it technically below is an example:
Starting with Windows 10, version 1607 (Build 14310 and later), the format adds a new part in the INF file: the [BuildNumber] part. That means that it started to define the build number of the Windows version when installing the drivers. Soon after, Intel and VMware have started to adopt this new technique and also add the [BuildNumber] part into the installation information.
So you will find this issue most of the time while installing Intel HD 520, 530, 630, 620 graphics drivers or VMware software package on Windows 10 platform :

Error Processor type not supported
Fix:
Just update the windows to latest Build 1803 spring updates.
You can manually check the updates already performed click here to know how.
You can search in Cortana “update” and on top you will see “Security and Updates” select that now select check for update in windows 10 operating system.
If you find a problem or finding difficulties then you can definitely update the windows to 1803 or later version by shortcut method by going to “Media Creation Website and selecting update now.
Issue explained and resolved.
