TwinCAT System Manager
Ethernet problem after installing TwinCAT System Manager

Hello, I have a lap top with Intel 82566 Gigabit Ethernet Card. I installed TwinCAT system manager v2.11.2022 and configured the ethernet adapter as TwinCAT PCI Ethernet Adapter according to this link

I started an Untitled project and when I pressed Scan Devices on the I/O devices tab, it didn't find it as EtherCAT device - TwinCAT PCI adapter, but as RT-Ethernet Device - Intel 82566 Gigabit Ethernet Card. The XML files for EtherCAT are installed in the TwinCAT/IO directory.

What could be the problem?
