I have a MEG Z390 ACE and using Dragon Center, all these fail to install. How can I fix this?

Maybe try it later? Or manually download them from the website:

Btw Dragon Center 2.0.92.0?

Yep, I'm on 2.0.92.0 of Dragon Center and I've had this problem for some time now.
Sure I could find the drivers manually and try to install them but with no issues, I don't think I'll bother. Just find it funny why they keep failing since I haven't had much of these issues before updating the drivers via Dragon Center. After all, being able to keep your drivers up to date in an easy way is one of the main purposes with Dragon Center.

How did they fail to install? During the installation circle? Still the same after second attempt?
I've seen this kind of issue before with older version of Dragon Center, could you share the Log file generated by this Dragon Center Diagnostic Tool here?

It just says it failed and then the update process finishes with no further messages. I was told above I could try getting the latest drivers from the website to install them manually but just found this for example. Where as you can see the driver reported as being online is later than the version available via the download section for my motherboard on the website. So it appears the latest version is only available via Dragon Center. Also interesting to see how the size of the updates differs a lot between what is available via the website vs Dragon Center.

Will try the diagnostic tool you're referring to and post the result here.

This is what it looks like when I try to update the Intel ME drivers for example where after it fails, Dragon Center is restarted automatically and I'm back at square 1.

Please don't use dragon center to update drivers or the bios. Go direct to the company website, like direct to intel.

I wonder if MSI shares that view?

I've been using Dragon Center both for driver and BIOS updates for years without any issues until now.

Have never used it for updating the Bios Or Drivers, but from the topics in the forums it seems there is just as much chance of bricking you Board using Dragon Center as any other method for Flashing your Bios or Updates Failing.

Was able to get the Realtek audio driver update and Intel ME driver update installed by resetting MSI Dragon Center via Windows 10 Settings-Apps but the Bluetooth driver update keeps failing no matter what I do.

After everything said in here, you've convinced me guys - MSI Dragon Center completely uninstalled! Which actually feels like a good thing since I like to keep my PC as clean as possible and only install those things I really need. As for driver and BIOS updates, it kind of feels nice knowing you're always on the latest version. However, mostly I think it's more wise and less risk of issues if you avoid updating until you have an actual issue which you think will be fixed by an update. I guess the old saying "Don't fix anything that ain't broken" still is golden and will try to remember that going forward!

Thanks for trying to help and pushing me in the right direction guys!

Dragon center is trying to do a lot in one place. It's ambitious and doesn't quite work, maybe one day it will. Before the 5000 series release flood there were quite a few people reporting problems. Quick Google highlights views on other sites. The one major flaw with it, is when it comes to updates. With m-flash you have to put the right file in your self, and there are little safeties. But at least you can see everything, with dragon center you can't. You go on trust and if the file it fetches does not match your motherboard....
