what happens if you execute a chipset driver installation package and the package does not recognize the chipset?

I ask it because i would execute the chipset installation package of the chipset RTL8812AU while i have the asus usb wlan adapter ac56 which would have the chipset rtl8812AU following the information on the internet.

Have you tried the Realtek site for the driver?

I speak about that realteak driver installation package.

I didn't have tried anything untill now.

The asus ac56 is a plug and play windows 10 device but the plug and play driver seems to have problems.I still have to buy the device.

So i would execiute the realteak driver installation package.

But i ask myself can there go something wrong when the realteak driver installation package does not recognize the asus ac56?

Or will i see the driver installation package will not succeed the installation of the driver and nothing happens which means my plug and play driver continues to work?

If I understand correctly you have not purchased the USB dongle yet and would like to know if the driver will self-install (plug and play) when attached to the Windows 10 computer. 

 

I am not sure but I believe it will. I suggest you post in the ASUS forum. After reading this thread you may want to consider a different dongle for Windows 10. It seems the ASUS driver is buggy.

 

The support page shows the latest driver available for Windows 10 is dated Feb 2016 which includes the software utility but I don't believe this is required in order for the USB dongle to connect.

sorry but you didn't understand me correctly: i had no question about the plug and play driver but about the realteak installation package:

I ask myself can there go something wrong when the realteak driver installation package does not recognize the asus ac56?

Or will i see the driver installation package will not succeed the installation of the driver and nothing happens which means my plug and play driver continues to work?

Usually if a driver fails nothing will happen, especially if the driver does not recognize the device.  but if it does you can go to Device Manager and select "Revert Driver". Also, creating a Restore Point will let you revert before the driver installs. It's always wise to create a Restore Point before the driver install.
