    Do I need to check other components if I want the Control Panel to be installed?

    I giggled a little :)

    Just saw Techpoweup wizzard made the same utility as you, although his has problems with gfe ... that issue with cfg.file (last 3 lines) and if you dont remove them.

    Won't link it here though.

    Is it possible(by command line params) to silently install the repacked drivers without any user interaction?

    Hi, not a gamer and a true novice re graphics hardware; just wanted Chrome to perform better than it does w/ my default Intel UHD Graphics 620 (true hardware acceleration and pushing loads to GPU instead of using up all of my 8G of RAM). Was shocked by the bloat and weight of "gaming driver" software for which I don't use most features.

    So I came across your tool on MajorGeeks, it installed and ran without any problem at all, and it so freaking AWESOME. Configured Chrome and it blazes, everything is better. Associated Chrome to always run with NVIDIA in its Control Panel.

    However, the NVIDIA container and control panel does not start up automatically upon boot, even after tweaking to start every possible NVIDIA service I could easily find on boot. And I can't get them to manually start, either (although the NVIDIA Display Container LS service is running in the background after I set it to through Task Manager, there is no way to access the GUI).

    I installed it with the minimal options selected (to include Core Functionality: Core DIsplay Driver, Optimus support, HD Audio, Install Core, and PhysX) after scanning the link posted elsewhere here that goes briefly through the background processes used. My understanding is that "Optimus" is the feature that smart-switches between the Intel and NVIDIA adapters. I looked at the very talented programmer's list of dependencies in this thread, and I thought that I had the two for Optimus installed--that they were part of the "basic" features.

    Am I missing something? I really miss the speed that this gave me on Chrome--in fact, with all the flags enabled that I enabled to take advantage of the NVIDIA card, it is pretty much freezing on me now. Speaks to how much power I shifted to the HW.

    Some specs on my setup:

    HW
    • Acer Aspire 5 (A515-51G-53F6)
    • 8GB RAM
    • NVIDIA MX150 w/ 2GB (the good one, I double checked) and Intel 620 (default)
    • Intel Core i5-8250 1.6 Ghz
    SW
    • Windows 10 Pro x64, 1803, OS 17134.407
    • NVIDIA driver 25.21.14.1694 (or 416.94? confused--former is what shows in Windows Devices, latter, is name of actual download) for x64, slimmed using 0.5
    • Set the "nvcplui.exe" and NVIDIA Display Container LS to run on boot (might need to have other svcs autostart?)

    Thanks much--be easy on me, again, really green here.

    If I remove NGX core from driver package and I install it, is the NGX core removed from system (maybe using clean installation option in drivers)?
    I ask because I have installed on the system NGX core 1.3 and newer drivers have version 1.25 or 1.27 on the package so, after drivers' installation, I have the indication that NGX was not installed as there is a newer version in the system.
    DDU is not removing NGX

    You're not supposed to.
    This is just for the sake of getting rid of some useless Windows backround processes.

    A small enhancement request: please add setting to disable packaging driver into SFX archive. I find it a little bit overkill to pack driver that will be immediately unpacked to install.
