    That would explain why the executable file (downloaded driver) cannot be installed anymore. It will give an error when one tries. One has to use GeForce experience in order to be able to install it. Consequently, it is basically impossible to use DDU to strip the installed driver of the unnecessary items, since in the process of using this third-party app, one needs to use the executable to reinstall the driver.

    I know for a fact that the executable file worked for the previous version.
    I used GFE on machine "B" to install. Snagged the installer .exe from Program Data and used it on machine "A" to manually install after I had done a DDU. All fine.

    Sounds real good. Why didn't I think of that? Thanks a lot for the tip. I will give it a try.

    I'm wondering when this new WDDM 2.6 will actually start to deliver in terms of gaming performance.

    yea Hitman 2 has crashed twice since installing this version.
    Do you play in DX12? I get crashes and freezing in this title aswell.

    If you are on 1903 with a WDDM 2.6 enabled driver (430.39 is supported), DX12 games should in theory run better with variable rate shading. Here's an interesting read regarding background shaders in D3D12 aswell: New D3D12 background shader optimizations for Windows 10 19H1 - Windows 10 Forums

    @Faith, good point, it may well be DX12. If it keeps doing it, I'll change back to DX11.

    Variable rate shading is not suited only for the new RTX GPUs?

    Since this thread is well populated with gamers and GPU gurus, a quick question.

    Occasionally, not always, and randomly, my desktop background images get a very quick flicker, almost like a momentary tear in part of the display.... looks like a black spray of lightning! Any NVidia driver. Only happens with the backgrounds, nowhere else, ever. I've tried the disable of quality reg edit back and forth. Been happening since I've had the box for 2 years.

    Reporting back on your suggestion. It did really cut it. I didn't have Machines A & B; the graphic driver on my other machine is AMD. What I did, was to go to Program Data on the same Machine (main machine not on Insider Program), copy the installer from there and paste it in a Download Folder I have on an external HDD. After that, I launched DDU and proceeded to uninstall the current NVIDIA Driver by following DDU's tutorial. When finished, I rebooted and used the installer copied and pasted before to the Download Folder on the external Drive. From there, everything went really smooth as evidenced by the following screenshots:

    As you can see, I am very happy about that and I owe it all to you.
