You have Mail Jason, As I suspected I was able to install 285.79 without too many problems, update and physics would not install for some unknown reason, but other than that 285.79 works and for the moment is the end of the line, unless I go the route of renaming Drive D: to C: and then doing a lot of tedious work replacing D:\ with C:\ in the registry and I'd rather not, as once was enough under XP Pro x64. I also ran the test over again this time in a copy of the test folder with all the old results deleted.

I wonder what it would think of my Intel computer, the "C" drive has linux installed on it currently.

"D" is the Windows drive.

"D" is the Windows drive.

I'd not touch 290.36 as It will leave orphan files and cause reboot issues cause of someone at nvidia who made an error in one file as where to install at, It took Me hours of rebooting and restoring to try and work My way out of It, only the driver I'd had installed before trying to install 290.36 worked right.

So My recommendation and advice is that If Your Windows Drive is not in C:\ to stay away from 290.36, If It is, then go ahead and install 290.36.

That machine will stay on 266.58 anyway as it also crunches AP on the GTX460.

I have 290.36 installed on my GTX560 machine as I am running a CUDA 4.1rc build.
