    I just recently noticed that if you install the "free of crap" or "minimal" nVidia driver installation you are missing out on the latest approved by nVidia Vulkan runtime libraries so I have decided to host a folder for anyone wanting to install them and will try to keep it up to date if this thread proves to be useful for people here.

    I have provided a graphic showing the 3 installation methods, a text file with the latest information on the Vulkan runtime libraries provided, and the actual Vulkan installer, and even a custom rar of the latest driver cut down to the minimalistic version of the installation method. The latest nVidia approved Vulkcan driver can be found within the Display.Driver folder or downloaded from the folder below.

    Because it won't install it unless you install the driver straight from the original package or you do it yourself. I don't run the original installer as I unpack it and install what I want so nVidia doesn't install the Vulkan drivers. I didn't realize this until the other day. Just trying to help some people out.

    Hmm, I've been doing this forever now and vulkan is installed every single time.
    I remove all folders except NVI2, PhysX and Display.Driver - then I install the driver using setup.exe, do a custom clean install, select everything and done. Vulkan gets installed every time. Am I missing something here...

    i always use DDU before installing a new driver and using the free of crap method and every time the vulkan rt gets installed no problem with this at all and playing vulkan games such as Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus with no problem or i miss something ?? i have no problem with uploading a separate installer i just asking if i do something wrong

    Strange as I do the same but didn't have Vulkan installed so I had to seek it out myself to get the new Wolfenstein to work.

    I use the regular drivers and Vulkan stopped installing automatically since the last 3 driver updates so I manually install it from the Graphics.Driver folder

    If someone doesn't know this, you can always get the latest version of VulkanRT from Lunar-G's Vulkan SDK: https://vulkan.lunarg.com/

    Because that's the API version the current Nvidia driver supports. The current driver doesn't support Vulkan features higher than 1.0.56 even if you install a higher version of the Vulkan Runtime.

    OP updated with:

    Vulkan Runtime Libraries 1.0.65.0 up to date from the nVidia Win 10 390.65 x64 driver.

    I also added 390.65 Win 10 x64 desktop minimalistic package pre-made in rar format.

    Sorry to say OP but you got two things wrong, one, the latest version is 1.0.65.1, and two, Vulkan IS installing, but since a few versions ago it is intentionally not shown in the installed programs list.

    I think the official runtime does that too, although come to think of it I never stripped out the 1.0.65.1 ones from the full SDK though it's just some smaller fixes to the installer itself as I remember from the changelog and nothing for the Vulkan loader or .dll files.
    (Which well the driver whether AMD or Nvidia likely have their own Vulkan files but sometimes the runtime fixes a few bugs and not just support for new extensions and such.)

    It can still be seen via something like CCleaner or you can just go to the C:\ Program Files folder and the Vulkan sub folders and run the uninstaller from there to remove it, which I tend to do since this system uses the Highlander rules and there can only be one. :p
    (Don't really need more than the latest runtime since it's backwards compatible after all, maybe for the SDK itself and programming or debugging through different versions but regular users likely have no need of that.)

    All I know is that Wolfenstein 2 wouldn't run until I manually installed Vulkan because it was not recognising it as installed. I thought I would put it up here for people in case they ever need it. Also, no you are wrong. Extract the driver and look in the display.driver folder. nVidia provides 1.0.65.0 not 1.0.65.1. I am providing the one nVidia provides with their driver not from any other source. If you install the VulkanRT from the nVidia driver it will show up in your program files as that version.

    For me it installed, Wolfenstein 2 worked . but I can't see the Vulkan Installer in Add/Remove programs. but all the DLLs are in System32 and SysWOW64 weird.

    And there are vulkan files in ProgramFiles (x86) \ vulkanRT\ 1.0.65.0

    I used the DDU and minimal Installation
