    Cannot install Nvidia DCH Drivers


    I used DDU to uninstall the Standard drivers while in Safe Mode. But the DCH driver installer still shows that my system is not compatible.

    I did the same procedure for the Intel Graphics drivers and I was able to install the DCH drivers successfully.

    Any particular reason you want to use the DCH instead of standard for your GPU drivers? DCH is for the most part for system OEMs and certain operatingsystems: Getting Started with Universal Windows drivers - Windows drivers | Microsoft Docs The transition between these two driver models will happen eventually on supported systems to my understanding.

    To kickstart the process try this: Let Windows Update first download and install the Nvidia driver, then make sure you get the correct DCH driver from Nvidia, aswell as the DCH compliant NVCP in the Microsoft Store.

    First question is why do you think that you need the DCH drivers, second, they really are not needed.
