    Correct the keyboard on Surface Pro 3?
    I have 2 Type Cover that stopped working on July 22, after the july update. Many users with the same problem.

    Are you sure that you are using the correct Intel DPTF driver? Version 8.2.x was not designed for Windows 10 1703. In addition those drivers do not install correct on device Vid_8087&Pid_0AC2 and Vid_8087&Pid_0AC3 used in this Surface Pro. Already in April Intel released appropriate DPTF drivers 8.3.x for Windows 10 1703. The latest version available from the Microsoft product catalogue is 8.3.10205.4743.

    seems the windows 10 drivers for this new surface pro is meant only for 1703? what about if we have windows 10 1607 or 1511?

    1. Windows 10 Version 1607 (Anniversary Update, Build 14393) and Windows 10 Version 1511 (November Update, Build 10586) are not supported on Surface Pro (Model 1796). The minimum supported version of Windows 10 is Windows 10 Version 1703 (Creators Update, Build 15063).
