That link didn't work for me, but if you go to NVidia's site and go thru the driver selection the normal way, they should be there.

Edit: Here's the links...

Edit 2: Nevermind, they must have removed them or don't have them up, yet. Weird. Not the first time this has happened.

Vista comes with 86.82 from 1/31, but damn, these are even newer.

Also, these help smooth out the mouse movement.

No INF can make these work with windows XP, vista has a whole new driver model.

There is nothing I can do here.
XP can never have glass effect.
The drivers that come or are for Vista are LDDM and have no control panel yet.

But it does look like the XP drivers will skip the 85 series all together.
We may see XP drivers start again with the 90's.
The 85 series look to be exclusive for vista.

It's a rather stupid idea because by the time vista is actually out the 85 series will be done with.

I'm only guessing.
But there hasn't been a single 85 series XP driver, not even a hint of one.

Nothing but Vista drivers for the 85's.
nVidia havn't offered me a developer place yet, I'm still waiting :D

There would little point of releasing one now as we're already upto 87.15 not much room to move to work on both 32/64 and Vista at the same time.

Also Vista drivers being LDDM means a whole different driver with no Control Panel and all these Aero effects to implement.

Sorry for my ignorance on Vista, but if there's no CP for these drivers, how do you make adjustments?

You can't with just these LDDM drivers.
You'd have to install XP drivers to get a control panel, but you loose the Aero effects.

I have more feelings that the 90's series might have the new Control panel added.
And maybe we get 4 choices on the buffet of drivers per release.
XP 32 and 64bit and Vista 32 and 64bit.
At some point the LDDM drivers are going to need a control panel, probably quite soon to test DX10 which will come with Vista's release ?
The new 80's FW control panel looks like it is going to fit in with the Vista feel.

Just a thought
