this still installs the 909.02.03 version, did they forget to change build number?

Did you just install this version on top of your existing one? If so, try uninstalling and reinstalling. I put these on a fresh Windows install with no previous graphic or PhysX software, and it worked just fine.

Interesting... the version number in file properties of the installer says 0203 as well as the version number in programs and features.

They do have *slightly* different file sizes however -

0203: 41,161,496 bytes
0408: 41,162,008 bytes

i can bet they forgot to change the version number when they compiled it.
