No OpenCL compatible devices found

I ran into an issue running hashcat on my Hyper-V Kali Linux VM.  I kept getting an error “OpenCL Platform #1: Mesa, skipped! No Open CL compatible devices found ERROR: No devices found/left”


I did a little Googling and eventually came across this site which documents how to install the Intel CPU ICD.

Very helpful stuff!  From there I followed the OpenCL driver link and finally ended up at a download link for the OpenCL Runtime for Intel Core and Intel Xeon processors.


I downloaded the runtime for Ubuntu, decompressed the archive and ran the install script.


Opened hashcat and booyah!  There’s my CPU.
