    I was running driver version 441.87 on my RTX 2080 Ti since 9th Feb 2020. No issues. On 24th June when I start my system I noticed a new folder was created: C:\nVidia Corporation\umdlogs. I just deleted it, but then every single day it gets recreated. Just started out of the blue. No driver, windows or any other updates. Hadn't even updated any non-related applications.

    So I updated the graphics driver. Didn't solve the problem. Post on a nother forum which pointed me here. Downloaded latest DDU and followed the instructions and uninstalled the drivers. The only thing I disabled was the retrieval of drivers from M$ Update, which I had set in group policy anyway (I gather group policy os not applied in safe mode?)

    After that I was unable to install any version of the nVidia drivers. The installer kept responding "Not compatible with this version of Windows". Say what?

    Had to restore from a Macrium Image.

    So there's two issues here... the creation of this empty folder and Not being able to install graphics drivers after using DDU.

    I use standard drivers. I won't use DCH drivers. At least until there is no other option, at which point I'll look for alternatives.

    That folder is only created where you the user have enabled umd logging.

    also sounds like you turned on a device block for the graphics card and forgot about it, I asked Wagnard to consider checking for and removing this a while ago.

    Ok, so how do I turn it off.
    I didn't turn it on and forget I did so. If it's on then it was accidental and I didn't know I did it. I don't even know what "A device block for the graphics card" is.

    I believe that would be back on page 89 of this thread?

    This message is probably because you blocked it with the "group policy" if you didn’t select the right policy you may have blocked the installation completely.
    Or with this message: Not compatible with this version of Windows
    Either wrong OS selected , Also possible you REQUIRED the DCH driver or the STANDARD one.

    As an alternative , you could install Geforce Experience and let it install the good driver for you.

    As other said, UMD has nothing to do with DDU.

    Please, help me! After using DDU on Win7 I can no longer use emulators that use Vulkan api! (RPCS3 and Dolphin). What can I do?

    Try to clean the NVIDIA driver with the new DDU 18.0.2.7. There is a fix I added that could affecvt Vulkan.
    If not working, try to go back to your earlier driver.
    RPCS3 here work fine on my NVIDIA hardware currently.
