    Do the standard notebook drivers support the max-q version, 1060?

    I'm trying to install them but keep getting a path error? Could this be something to do with me having stripped the driver set down?, aka, all but driver and physx?, and laptop don't like it, whereas the desktop version don't mind?

    Yes they do support them.

    You're probably deleting the geforce experience folder which is required for install unless you edit setup.ini

    Well, I do not want the GBloat Experience, as I don't with my desktop, so this is the way I have always done it. Why does a laptop/notebook insist this folder is there in the first place?, but on a normal desktop install, it couldn't care less?

    It has nothing to do with laptops.

    Anything 398 and above requires that folder for install on all systems.

    Then can you explain how I installed the latest driver package, without that folder, on my desktop?

    You must have a special computer because I have 3 different systems that will not install it without editing the setup.ini, see above.

    If you didn't mod the driver package yourself, then perhaps what you installed was Mott's "Free of crap"-package (or something else like it)?

    As Agent-A01 says, installing without the GFE folder present shouldn't be possible without modifying setup.cfg. It doesn't work for me either.
    Note that this behavior was added with 397.93, so any prior driver wouldn't have this requirement.

    Well one learns something every day :D Turns out, it was the FOC package I was using, so I must apologise profusely to Agent-A01, and also thank all of you for directing me in the right direction.

    All good now after editing said file :)

    Many thx!

    You DON'T need that folder. Here's how you do it.

    Delete every folder except NV12 and Display.Driver.

    Open the CFG file and scroll to the bottom and delete these three lines

    <file name="${{EulaHtmlFile}}"/>
    <file name="${{FunctionalConsentFile}}"/>
    <file name="${{PrivacyPolicyFile}}"/>
