I can't install Geforce experience

I have a problem with Geforce Experience. When I try to install the drivers, it says “NVIDIA GeForce Experience 2.1.5 status not instaled” and “NVIDIA Update Core status error”. I tried to uninstall and install again several times, install previous drivers, cleaning registers… and nothing it works. If you have any solution I would appreciate. Thank you.

I’m having the exact same problem, started 2-3 days ago. It’s quite annoying? Did you fix it or are you still having problems?
Either way i’m following!

I got the same problem recently, After buying Dying light today i want to optomilize the game with the geforce experience program.
It dind’t start so i contact live chat supported by Nvidia…
Can honestly they made it worse… now i can’t even download it anymore.
Hope there will be a fix soon for us all.
After spending 5+ hours with these guys i am nowhere near a solution.

So it’s currently under investigation.
Ill post any progress in the future.

If ur trying to do the same things with the live chat support.
Make sure that when u follow the instructions u make printscreens of the result to proof that u have done it in the right way.
It’s allot of work, but they can’t resist not to help you.

Got the same thing, very strange I must say. Glad to hear it’s under investigation and I look forward to any respone you may give me.

Best regards, Hugo.

I have had the same issue For a while now and still no fix.
I wouldn’t mind to much but I want to use shadowplay for recording.
Can someone please help




Sorry for The multiple posts

It’s still not fixed. I’ve just tried to install the new version and as in the version I get these problems

  • NVIDIA GeForce Experience version - Not Installed
  • NVIDIA Update Core version Failed
    If anyone knows a way to fix this I would really like to hear it.

I’m having this problem now.

I have done EVERYTHING they’ve asked me. And nothing! I can’t play any games at all and I too have the GTX 760. I’m just waiting for a reply from them. If my problem gets solved, I will share it with everyone.
So frustrating!!

I had the same problem and solved today.

Steps I have done:

  1. Removed C:/NVIDIA folder
  2. Removed C:/Program Files/Nvidia*
  3. Removed C:/Program Files (x86)/Nvidia*
  4. De-installed everything NVIDIA-* (3D, Audio, everything) from the "Programs and Features" Dialogue
  5. Installed Geforce Experience and Drivers
  6. ???
  7. Profit

Note: I had to stop the Nvidia Services to delete some of the files, you can do that in the Task Manager with Admin Rights (click “Show processes from all users” in the “Processes” tab to enable admin rights) under the “Services” tab.

If I remember correctly I had to restart multiple times between the de-installtions. The standard VGA driver will be installed during those reboots.

Anyway, that way it worked (and I also freed like 10 GB of older driver versions), I hope it helps someone.

Had the same issue today, i had just reinstalled windows to use the 64bit version,so needed to reinstall drivers.
geforce experience failed.
looked in device manager and some components didnt have drivers, used my motherboard driver disc to install these drivers, including acpi driver,I retried installing geforce experience and it worked, easy fix and worth trying first?
hopefully this helps.

Same problem here.

I tried to install the 350.12 driver version, it deleted everything related to graphics and it didn’t install the new one. So, my graphic card is “useles” right now.

I installed the driver through the device manager and tried installing Geforce Experience but it didn’t work either.


Hey guys,

Im having the same problem with GeForce_Experience_v2.4.3.31. Cant install it… I havent been able to find a solution to this… have I missed something in this thread?

Been having this installer issue since the experience program first came out. Why should I have to jump through hoops to get it updated? Shouldn’t it just work? Seems to me that Nvidia spends all their money on hardware engineers but none on software engineers. Just fix this already…

I just got notification when updated on that unable to install it and ALSO unable to install Net. Framework 4.0 even if I already have it installed. New product, but same eggs.

Did this work for anyone else? and do I need to delete my driver too? I’m not to keen on doing that if I can not reinstall it again. I just don’t want NVIDIA to start any hicups with my system…

I have Windows 8.1 (No jokes please)
GTX 760M
i7 oh and it’s a Notebook if that counts for anything…

Never had this problem intill recently when I just feelt like opening the program, Don’t really use it for much else than update my drivers every now and then when I think the current one is the source of my problems…

I too have problem with GeForce Experience install - Status “Not installed”
