Intel Chipset Software Utility, should I install it? [duplicate]

"I just installed windows 7. Intel recomends to install the Inf utility after you install the operating system and before you install everything else.
There is no version for windows 7 yet."

"You primary answer is at the Intel link you gave.
Do I need the Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility?

Did you just install the operating system?

If the answer is yes, you should install the Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility to ensure that your chipset is optimally configured.
Note The Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility is not required and not available on systems running any version of Microsoft Windows NT* 4.0.

If the answer is no, you do not need to install the Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility.

About when to install,

If the Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility is required for your system, it should be installed immediately after installing your operating system and any operating system service packs, but before installing any other device drivers.

About the Windows 7 support, here is one Beta user interaction at the Intel forum."

"I would not install it unless a specific problem arose that would require the installation of the INF utility to solve.

Windows 7 has excellent driver support, so I doubt you'd get anything truly important."
