    This is a Quadro beta dated 11/09/08 and is available only for XP32/64 at the German NV site. Might be useful for those who have probs w/ the 180 series drivers. Supports only Quadro, all other cards will need INF mod:

    XP32 International: http://www.nvidia.de/object/winxp_178.49_de.html

    XP64 International: http://www.nvidia.de/object/winxp64_178.49_de.html

    Thanks for your work on the inf for Quadros, F_L_C. I am currently working with 178.46 Quadros and i must say they are by far the most stable drivers for me. They work smooth in both gaming and video editing. Ill keep them as long as i dont see a real reason to move to 180+.

    Happy Thanksgiving...

    NP dude, this is a rather strange release, BTW. First, it's rare to get an official Quadro driver that's beta status. Second, it seems to be only available for the Germans cause it doesn't show up at any other site. And third, it didn't include the usual "nv4_disp.inf" but an INF with a name similar to mobile INFs. I have not installed it as I'm using 180.70 w/ no issues. But a very odd driver indeed.
