Installation of CUDA toolkit without replacing current display driver

I was wondering if it would be possible to install the CUDA toolkit without having to replace my current NVIDIA display driver. I do not want to replace the existing one if it is possible to avoid it. I am fine with the other changes that the CUDA installer makes to the system, just not the display driver.

The final aim that I want to achieve is to be able to #include <cuda.h> in my code, so that I can develop a CUDA application.


Yes, you can install without the display driver. However if the display driver does not provide at least the same CUDA runtime version, you might not be able to use all the CUDA features available for that specific version.
