    Don't tell me you actually trust those reviews?
    I switched to DCH on purpose a few days ago with DDU so that Nvidia would screw something with the forced DCH upgrade.
    Zero issues, control panel was installed automatically after the main driver package.

    How did you get NVCP, from the MS store?
    If DCH drivers don't come with CP windows update should provide it, the last way would be to MS store.
    I could imagine times were you update drivers but you're on an older version of CP.

    Also note, you should not have to use DDU to install drivers. I never have.

    windows update is not a qualified provider for DCHA support applications.

    Yes. Either it was scheduled to install automatically or I triggered it somehow, maybe by clicking an Nvidia tray icon. Anyway ~30 seconds after I turned my internet back on after the driver install, I got a notification from WinStore that nvcpl has been installed.
    But it wouldn't be a big deal to me if I had to manually install it from the store, it's only a couple of clicks anyway.

    Does anyone know how to change the text language for these new drivers?
    The dutch text language is horrible for finding settings.

    The old way with deleting .dll's in xx\NVIDIA Corporation\Display\ and xx\NVIDIA Corporation\Control Panel Client does not work anymore since these folders don't exist with the new drivers.

    Wrong. That would essentially be side loading an application outside the MS Store which would be a huge security problem if allowed not just by Nvidia but any vendor.

    I have had several store apps fail to boot with all sorts of "did not register with DCOM within the required timeout" errors in the past, they are much more less reliable than the good old win32 apps.
    I hope there will always be an option to get the good old panel.

    When you first install DCH drivers, it will automatically grab the NVIDIA Control Panel from the Windows Store assuming you are connected to the internet. If you uninstall the NVIDIA Control Panel and the NVIDIA DCH display drivers manually, Windows 10 will assume you did not intend to install the NVIDIA Control Panel so on the following installation, it will not automatically grab the NVIDIA Control Panel from the Windows Store. We have a complete FAQ along with link to manually download the NVIDIA Control Panel from the Windows Store available in case you have issues with your installation:

    Microsoft only support distribution of Hardware Support Apps through the Windows Store.

    Manuel, when will the 445 driver officially be released, and for which version of Windows is it designed for 2004 or not?

    I went from 441.41 to these .66, to vulkan 441.71, but returned to 441.41.

    Vulkan were the least smooth for some reason, these .66 also not so good.
