Call of Duty Black Ops 3 runs very noticeably smoother with this driver. More than it ever has before.

Heaven Benchmark 4.0 DirectX 11 tests give scores right up there with the best of the scores of other recent drivers.

Modded INF not working with this driver, Get the Hash error

I also see Anniversary edition gets its own section in INF

The threatened issue has come to fruition

I'm gonna try installing this driver by editing one of the existing lines in nvdmi.inf, are you saying that you reckon you won't be able to get your nvdispi.inf working with this driver?

EDIT:  got the driver installed OK by modifying an existing line in nvdmi.inf

What version of Windows you runnin ?
Developer version = no go
Normal version will probably still allow non WHQL, with driver sig enforcement off
This driver has 2 parts in INF anniversary and non

I'm running the Anniversary build, the normal consumer version, I used bcdedit to enable the boot menu & disabled driver signature enforcement from there to install the driver.  Ah, it's the developer version of Windows that won't allow you to install then.

Got the Sig enforcement sorted needed to run it again and add a 3rd setting

Modded INF for this driver
Should work on both versions of Win10, anniversary and pre.

I'm getting a "Service Installation in this INF is invalid" error when trying to install this on my system with the Modded INF.

Any clues of what to do to fix?

I'm running a 560M on Windows 10.

Are on Anniversary edition ?
That installs fine for me, can't test Win10 normal due to having abnormal edition
The editions have different parts inside the INF as they handle drivers differently

Sorry if I'm ignorant, what qualifies as the Windows 10 Anniversary edition? I'm running the windows 10 that was upgraded from Windows 7 with the free upgrade. 64-bit.

 

I figured that out. I'm still on build 1511 Win 10 Home. So I'm downloading the right driver from nvidia.

Modded INF should still work though I had a look but nothing popped up at me
