I can’t seen to get the smi tool running. Dependency walker reports is not even a valid PE executable. Can anyone verify?
I wasn’t able to reproduce the same issue locally. Can you try re-installing the driver, but with logging enabled? After extraction (default path looks like C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\310.90\Win8_WinVista_Win7_64\English) you should be able to run setup.exe from the command line. I was able to enable logging with the following:
setup.exe -n -log:C:\NVIDIA\Logging -loglevel:6
The C:\NVIDIA\Logging directory will then have the install logs. If you send me those logs, I can look them over.
