NVWMI Error in Application Log

I have a Windows 8.1 VM (XenDesktop) that is getting the following in the Application log multiple times per second. I’ve tried removing/clean installing the driver package.

Passthrough or vGPU?

Which driver?

I am having the same issue. We are running 369.95 with M10 vGPU. We are on 6.0 with the 6.0 drivers and only two machines are experiencing the issue. Did you guys find a resolution to this?

Hi there, I’m trying to monitor our servers using the Nvidia WMI performance metrics. I can go onto the box localy or remotely using perfmon and get the data, no problem. But whenever I try to use RCP (say wbemtest.exe or out ITSM software) it can see all other classes, except for the Nvidia classes. I’ve been through a whole load of support papers, still no joy. it’s almost as if the NVidia class isn’t avaialble to RPC calls.
