Modded INFs for Win7/Vista are up for those that don't have one of the limited Quadro supported in oriignal INF.

Will get round to XP INFs shortly.

Strange, at the time of this post, these are officially available from Nvidia for Windows 7 x64 for Geforce cards, but not any other OS. Windows 7 x86 and all versions of Vista/XP still have 185.85 as the last official WHQL release.

Check the file name again. ;)

Yeah, the "win7_winvista_64bit" is what makes it strange. Right now, the only way to download 186.18 from Nvidia with official support for Geforce cards, is from the Windows 7 x64 page. The drivers for Vista and Windows 7 are identical, but it is not listed for Vista on Nvidia's site. Obviously anyone who wants the Vista driver can simply use the Windows 7 link.

Mirrors Edge SLI shadow corruption?
Empire Total War troop graphic corruption?
Gears of War total corruption?
Fixed?

have you compared them to 190s?

Mirror's Edge in SLi is running sooo smooth now definitely noticed a FPS boost. It still has the minor flicker, but at least the annoying green tint is gone.

190's were absolute crap for me, but I'm keeping these for sure. :)

Edit: Nevermind. As soon as I started playing it after I wrote the above comment, the green flicker was back. WTF?!

I got the drivers via NV's driver beta/whql page, Quadro, then select OS and I choose UK to get the international version.

All 4 versions were available this way, there was only 186.08 beta under 'Geforce'.

UPDATE
I see these are also available now for Geforce's on NV's site.

Does it go away if you change that SLI setting in nHancer?

Everytime I boot into Windows with these the refresh rate changes from 60hz to 24hz for some unknown and very very very very very very very stupid reason.

Digital Vibrance not working with these drivers on a 7800 GTX 512 and Win 7 x64

Crashed in WoW with these, first time I ever crashed in W7. WoW just minimized and there was a yield icon by the Action Center saying Nvidia driver stopped responding.

Event Log said NVlddmkm.sys stopped responding and successfully restarted. Again, never had this error before with WoW, even in Vista. I was using 185.85's before.

I was able to alt-tab back into WoW, but the mouse wouldn't work at that point, I could move with the keys but not click any icons or bags, but I could click the menu, so I logged off and back on and it was OK.

Weird.

Could be a sign of video card failure.

Happened to me :(

Sigh, yet another driver that has resize hdtv sli bug resizing to 1810x instead of 1920x. Back to good old 182.50 the last driver that worked in this regard.

These caused severe flickering when loading the campaign map in Empire: Total War. Back to 182.50 and it was gone.

PowerDVD 9.0.1719 crashes for me with Nvidia PureVideo enabled. Took me awhile to finger out but once I disabled PureVideo it worked fine.

Can anyone else confirm this problem with PowerDVD 9? I need to know if I need to dig deeper for the cause or not, thanks.

These drivers have broken my Arcsoft SimHD plugin in 1080 mode. I get a thick green line ontop of the screen and it disappears when i use the other two lower res modes.

I actually like these. nVidia CP doesn't take forever to open with SLi now.

Around half the performance of the 181.71 drivers in Empire total war. Was a really quick check though and the only game.
