Cannot install cuda_10.2.89_441.22_windows.exe on windows7

I’ve selected to download local exe for windows7 (cuda_10.2.89_441.22_windows.exe).
And when i’m trying to install it, it simply fails.

Traced via sysinternals procmon.exe to
C:\Users\XXXXX\AppData\Local\Temp\NvidiaLogging\LOG.setup.exe.log file.

Inside the file, I get following error lines:
ERROR: [NVI2.NVOsConstraint] 87@CNVOsConstraint::PerfornOperatingSystemCheck : Minimum OS version check fail - Version: 6.1.7601 < 6.3
INFO: [NVI2.NVOsConstraint] 87@CNVOsConstraint::PerfornOperatingSystemCheck : Minimum OS version check pass - Version: 6.1.7601 <= .

Can you help to understand what’s wrong and how to install it ?

That is your problem right there but I am not sure why it failed exactly. The mystery is I have the same OS, W7 with SP1 and it reports 6.1.7601 and I was able to install CUDA v10.2 on it just yesterday. This is very curious.

Make sure you download the correct version of the installer. It needs to be the one specifically for W7.
