    Windows 10 64-bit Standard 430.97 Hotfix. I was able to grab the package...er...unpackage?...folder full-o-drivers from the Temp folder and pack it up for storage myself, so no big deal, just thought I'd mention it in case you wanted to fool with it.

    PS: I was curious if it was a .NET thing so installed .NET 4.8 (was only 3.5 and 4.7.2 I think) but it made no difference. I don't know why it would matter, but just in case, more info:
    Windows 10 x64 LTSC 1809 @ 17763.529
    Search/indexing, System Restore, Defender = disabled.

    Hey gurus. I want share my research about GFE minimum dependencies.
    Thank you uKER for nice utility!
    PS: I not use GFE login, just import .reg file instead for my config. So, don't blame me if it's not works :)

    Sorry for the late response. I tried it and had no issues.
    Come to think about it, do you by any chance have spaces in your Windows user name?
    That's been an issue before in some other areas of the code and I haven't been able to test it.

    if do not select the driver and click the apply button and in the confirmation window, click YES, there will be an error.

    LOL That was a dumb one from me.
    The buttons should stay disabled if you don't load a package.
    Already fixed it. You'll get it in the next release.
    Thanks!

    You're not supposed to unpack the driver with WinRAR.
    NVSlimmer expects you to open the driver package itself.

    Thanks for the headsup, I'm on 430.86 and this isnt making connection attempts.
    My HIPs is set to ask if a connection attempt is made on Nvdisplay.container.exe
    I'll update and see what happens :)

    Np. Just realized I was using 0.6, but I can't see anything for 0.7 about removing added telemetry. I know there was some telemetry that users were talking about still remaining in the drivers but the author said it should be irrelevant.

    endless possibilities,

    None the less I like the tool it saves me the trouble of having to manual extract setup files and delete things I dont want or use and the semi recent change that requires use to to edit a .cfg file, just for setup to work

    I think you're answer is in post 168 (GFE dependencies).

    On a different note, thank you to everyone involved in allowing me to have this - it is a perfect answer to a real irritation.
