    Despite using 150% scaling myself, I'm unable to get the window to cut out.
    Anyone having this issue willing to try out a private test build, care to contact me via PM please?
    Thanks in advance!

    I also noticed the scaling thing too. You can right click the exe and use properties/compatibility to override high DPI scaling (allow the application to handle it), then it works fine.

    @uKER, hello.
    It is a fantastic way, but I have one question.
    After all steps and closing the utility, I have in "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp", two folder:
    First name 20200729025344(578MB), after cleaning driver files.
    Second name 20200729025623(320MB), after repackage driver.
    It is garbage on drive c:
    It would be better if after closing/exit the utility, thеsе folder in temp directory will be removed.
    Of course if it's possible!
    Thank you very much.

    Not sure if this is a bug but I don't see the option to install the driver at the bottom -

    This is the known DPI scaling bug. Workaround is to override high DPI scaling.

    Well, v0.9 should be up.
    I implemented the deletion of the temp folder and made an attempt to fix the DPI scaling bug.
    I couldn't reproduce the issue on my PC despite having changed scaling modes to several settings, so those that were having it please let me know how that goes.

    And last but not least, a big thank you to those that sent in donations.
    I never thought anyone would actually do it, but thanks to Andrej Vondena and Oleg Hristov.
    Much appreciated! :)

    EDIT: Apparently DPI issue is now fixed. Thanks to oli3 for confirming.

    Hi, can anybody tell me what Miscellaneous options must be enabled to Geforce experience to work? I left Geforce Experience checked, but when starting GFE it gives me error code 0x0003.
    Also is GFE streaming service needed for livestreaming or is it a nvidia Shield thing?
    Thanks

    I deleted the Nv Module tracker which doesn't seem to affect the driver (so far) :rolleyes:

    Updated to v0.10, adding support for the NvModuleTracker thingie (it did work anyway save for the warning).

    Again, thanks to those who have sent in donations.
    This time the shout out goes to Marcel Meng and Jason Marriott.
    Thanks, guys!
