Problem with Device #1? shuts down process
#1
I am new to hashcat, For the past 2 days I have been trying to crack my wpa2 hash but fail to do so because of "Device #1" It seems to be my Intel i3 Core Processor? I am not sure. any help would be great. I am using The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali) Linux on a live USB.

The command I give is:

hashcat -m 2500 -a3  .hccapx ?d?d?d?d?d?d?d --force


after this it starts but then encounter 114 errors then tells me the problem is with Device #1

If needed I can post the whole message it gives concerning the problem.

Any help would be much appreciated, I am not satisfied with cracking my wpa2 with a wordlist.

Thanks, I just found the solution. For some reason I needed to download Intel Driver and Support. I don't know why but after downloading this and installing, hashcat worked.
Thanks for your help.

You can also limit what devices are being used with the -d parametre. So if you're only wanting to use your dedicated GPU and not your CPU just choose that device with -d # in your command.
