    1.Decompress archive
    2.Delete all folders exept -> first screenshot
    3.Open setup.cfg with notepad, go to the bottom of the file, delete strings -> second screenshot
    4.save/close setup.cfg -> run install

    P.S. Forgot to mention this is for RTX cards. For GTX you may need some other folders to stay

    Thanks for update !

    Inside the setup.cfg file, you have to remove 5 lines, not 3 (for RTX and maybe GTX too)

    Is there any issue with installing RTX version on a GTX card? I have 3070 and 1050ti machines and I want to keep a single package if possible.
    Am I missing something in the RTX package which is required for the GTX card?

    Thanks for providing these updates.

    Is there a clean version of the Studio drivers available? The first post only seems to contain Game Ready drivers...

    Now it's not working again (517.48), "An unknown error has occured" (with NV site EXE too) , like if EXE doesn't work, i used windows update EXE (2022-10-11 KB5018410), it worked, since when NVidia drivers are change to do so ?

    My PC is offline, can't have internet and that's not an option, does it possibly is the cause ?

    Back to 511.79 again... (edit, worked....... ! AGAIN !)

    It seems that by using the NVSlimmer utility it reduces the size even more ...

    I see the "cleaned" versions have some .dll extracted already which makes them bigger when extracted but possibly better when compressed via 7zip,
    but I guess after the installation it doesn't matter anyways :)
