NVIDIA 418.81 driver (Feb. 4th) doesn't work with Octane - please don't update yet! We are working with NVIDIA to fix ASAP. We need to recompile Octane 4/2018.1+ to work with this driver version, and will post an update to this thread once that is done and confirmed working. Thank you!

If you have updated to this driver, here is how to revert: viewtopic.php?p=356426#p356426

I followed all the instructions but Windows won't allow me to install 417.71. Any hope of getting this fixed soon? Losing a lot of time

You went into safe mode and uninstalled 418.81 with DDU and after the restart it would not allow you to install 417.71?

Hello,
Any update on getting this fixed? I am going on day 3 with no renders. Windows will not allow me to install 417.71 and I followed all the instructions. Don't want to do a complete reinstall of everything.
Thanks
Matt

I don't know how you've tried to, but i made the same mistake of updating to 418.81 and I just went to the Nvidia website and downloaded 417.71 and it worked for me.

Hi Matt,
if you are running under Windows 10, you could disable automatic windows 10 update, then install 417.71 Nvidia drivers.
To get an effective Nvidia drivers installed, please use DDU Nvidia unistaller drivers, the best way to get a clean installation.

Thank you so much for your reply. Nothing is working.
1. Started in SafeMode
2. Ran DDU Nvidia Unistaller
3. Downloaded Nvidia 417.71 installer
4. Error on install (See photo)

Windows 10, version 1809
Thanks
