Driver Difference?


I just wanted to install cuda 3.0 and therefore downloaded:

However when I search just for grafic card drivers on the main page( i find the following file:

  • 197.13_desktop_win7_winvista_32bit_international_whql

My question is, whats the difference between the following drivers and which one do I have to install to use CUDA 3.0?

  • devdriver_3.0_winvista-win7_32_197.13_general.exe (89,5MB)
  • 197.13_desktop_win7_winvista_32bit_international_whql (114MB)


You will have to install the “devdriver_3.0_winvista-win7_32_197.13_general.exe (89,5MB)” to be able to use CUDA 3.0 capabilities.


thx for the reply.

So all I have to do is to install the devdriver (and leave the 197.13_desktop_win7_winvista_32bit_international_whql at all).?!
And before that do I have to deinstall my old driver or can I simply install the new one on top?
