Current WSL CUDA driver refuses to install with GeForce GT 710 under Windows 11


I’m trying to set up WSL 2 under Windows 11 with GUI support for Linux applications. I’m following the instructions from here:

As instructed I’m downloading the GeForce Cuda WSL driver from here:

My Windows 11 device manager says that I have a NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 graphics card in the system. When I run the installer executable 510.06_gameready_win11_win10-dch_64bit_international.exe, it fails with the error message (I translated this from German myself):

The NVIDIA installation program cannot continue
This NVIDIA graphics driver is not compatible with this Windows version
The graphics driver was not able to find a compatible graphics card

When I follow the link at the bottom of the GPU in Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) | NVIDIA Developer page for “Registered members of the NVIDIA Developer Program” then I get the same driver download as above.

How can I get the driver installed for my GeForce GT 710 card under Windows 11?


No dice.

R470 driver series is the last to support Kepler

Yeah, it kind of suck because it states plain as day that its compatible with wsl2, windows 11, and version 21H2 which is what I have, but was of course, like everything else in my life, too good to be true. I thought at first it might of been due to me having windows 11 pro, but no, it seems to be the American way nowadays is false advertising along with a lot of false hope.
