Default New Nvidia WHQL - 190.62

Just came across these, released today:

New in Release 190.62
  • Adds WHQL support on Windows 7 for Microsoft’s new DirectX GPU Computing API: DirectCompute.
  • Optimized for the latest PhysX gaming titles: Batman: Arkham Asylum and Darkest of Days.
  • Installs PhysX System Software version 9.09.0814.
  • Includes several bug fixes. More information can be found in the release documentation.
  • What is your Windows 7 upgrade plan? Take a Quick Survey.
New in Release 190
  • Adds support for OpenGL 3.1
  • Adds support for CUDA 2.3 for improved performance in GPU Computing applications. See CUDA Zone for more details.
  • Adds a new user-controlled power management setting for select GeForce 9-series and later graphics cards (only available on cards that already support more than one power state). This option allows users to set a performance level for each DirectX or OpenGL application.
  • Includes several new control panel features and numerous bug fixes. More information can be found in the release documentation.
  • Users without US English operating systems can select their language and download the International driver here.
You know where to find them.

Awesome drivers, never have I had every single startup program crash upon reboot after the driver install. 82 errors in the application log. I'm thinking it doesn't like that I have nview installed...

The description for Event ID ( 1 ) in Source ( nview_info ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: NVIEW : SetPoint: WAIT_TIMEOUT, LAST SUCCESS: (thread 0xa58) (cmdName:SetPoint.exe) WindowManager.cpp 3400


A quick google shows nview seems to be BORKED with these.

Driver uninstallation is also effed up.

You restart manually and then are greeted with an Nvidia command prompt saying *NVIDIA: yes / no.
