--ok lazy get is a lot more elegant than this.
You either enabled SSAA at the global level instead of the profile (I forgot to ask that) or you don't have the correct NvApps.xml, there's no AA enabled there.

I'm guessing you got the one from C:\Windows\System32\. It seems nVidia no longer keeps NvApps.xml there (you might have one from an old driver set). It's now under C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA\. ProgramData is typically hidden so you have to manually type it in in Explorer.

That said, don't bother. I ended up downloading nHancer. 2x2 supersampling corresponds the following settings:

<PROPERTY Label="aa_selector" Value="0x10000000" Default="0x00000000" />
<PROPERTY Label="aa_default" Value="0x00000005" Default="0x00000000" />

At least that's the entires that nHancer added in Bioshock's section. However, SSAA didn't work when enabled at the profile level, it did work when enabled at the global level. I have the Steam version of the game, so it's possible the drivers aren't recognizing the .exe - that said the profiles work for other games I have on Steam.
