Quick question.  I am running Win10 (B9879) and it will not allow me to update the NVIDIA drivers.  I am stuck with the default Win10 version, 340.xx.  When I try to install the latest drivers the NVIDIA installer fails saying my operating system isn't recognized.  Is there a way around this?

<setup title="${{ProductTitle}}" version="344.80" installerMin="2.1002.158.1139">
<filter name="x86" platform="x86"/>
<filter name="amd64" platform="amd64"/>
<filter name="xp" max="5"/>
<filter name="minVista" min="6"/>
<filter name="VistaAndWin7" min="6" max="6.1"/>
<filter name="minWin8" min="6.2"/>
<include name="${{ResourcesDirectory}}\presentations.cfg" select="/presentations/*"/>
<include filter="not-manifest" name="${{ResourcesDirectory}}\theme.cfg" select="/theme/*"/>
<strings>
 
That is the setup config. The issue is that that they changed the nomenclature. Windows 10 is now version 10. Not 6.3/6.4/6.x

<filter name="minWin8" min="6.2"/>

 

Try adding at the end: <filter name="minWin10" min="10"/>

 

It's a shot in the dark, but it can't hurt

Thanks, David.  I'll give that a shot.  However, I didn't think the kernel version number had changed until that Chinese team got hold of a leaked build that's later than the last Win10TP build (B9879).  I think I saw that it was build 9888 and it was the first time anyone saw that the kernel version number had changed to 10.0

 

Regardless, your suggestion is worth a try.

Well, didn't have to try your suggestion after all, David. Microsoft released a patch for Win10TP Build 9879 today in an attempt to correct all the stability problems that showed up in this 3rd TP build. After applying the patch, the NVIDIA 344.65 installer worked just fine and the update was successful.

Great to hear.  In your opinion, do you think Win10 is stable enough to use as a daily driver? Any performance enhancements? All around.

Well, I'm happy with this Windows 10 preview version and I took the risk to use it at my daily FS system. Sometimes I think P3D v2.4 runs smoother but one can be fooled so easy so I'm not sure about this.

 

It's your decision and I can't and won't give you any recommendations.

David - as Spirit stated, I won't recommend Win10TP for your main FS machine since there are so many variables and YMMV.  However, I have been using Win10TP on all my computers and have been very pleased for the most part.  The third TP build (9879) had some stability problems but the patch I referred to above fixed many of those and all seems to be well now.

 

FSX and P3D performance are excellent!  With FSX especially, the joystick disconnect problem that had plagued so may Win8/8.1 users has been fixed, which is a huge relief.  Since installing Win10 I have had dozens of flights with no joystick issues.

 

All-in-all, Win10 looks like it just might be what Win7 was to Vista... a drastic improvement.  And Microsoft are finally reverting back to a desktop centric schema with a Win7 style start menu, which will please many folks. 

 

I think you'll like it, but again, YMMV.

I'm installing it now. Fingers crossed.
