Can you tell me if the eVGA voltage tuner works with this driver? When I used the .46 version, the voltage tuner program would not load.

I couldnt tell you as voltage tuner didnt do anything for my overclocks so I dont use it.

These are the best drivers to use if you are interested in using the latest Quadro driver on a GTX 260 yes?

You can fix it with a registry tweak. I've done it myself, and it's perfectly fine.


Navigate to: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex

Delete: NvCplDesktopContext.

Then, re-enter the registry key.

Navigate to: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell

Right-click on Shell and add a new Key: NVIDIA Control Panel

Then right-click on that entry and add a new key: Command

After adding the new entry Command, on the right side panel, double-click the Default Value entry and type/copy/paste:

c:\windows\system32\nvcplui.exe

And you're all done.


Save this as a .reg file if you don't want to do it manually.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
