nvidia processes

Usually when I install new nvidia drivers, I get a message from DF asking if I want to disable nvidia processes that interfere with DF, and I do so. That didn't happen on my last install of drivers, and I THINK it's because I installed DCH drivers this time, rather than standard drivers. I was able to solve the issue on my own by renaming both nvsmartmaxapp.exe and nvsmartmaxapp64.exe in C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\nv_dispi.inf_amd64_b9ae772eb7ef9895 (had to change permissions on the directory first).

Is this a compatibility limitation with DCH drivers right now, or is there another issue going on here?

It could be, yeah. We've never tested with anything but the official NVIDIA drivers. Could you send me the link to where you downloaded them?

DCH drivers /are/ official nvidia drivers. They're made to follow the new standards for drivers laid out by microsoft for Windows 10. They can be downloaded from the same Nvidia site for standard drivers, but you have to select DCH drivers rather than standard drivers in the search. The installation will also fail if the standard drivers aren't completely wiped from the system beforehand, and vice versa for standard drivers (DDU suggested).

Ah, interesting! Thanks for the extra info, I hadn't seen that DCH option before. We'll do some further testing here and see what we can find out.

Thanks!
