Topic: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

Well, the festive season has come early for us all. 
Because of all the hard work of our dedicated testing team, we are proud to present our FINAL Graphics DriverPacks!
These DriverPacks have undergone extensive testing on a wide variety of hardware and we've invested well over 1000 man-hours in their development.

The files have now been moved to our wicked-fast Simple-CDN host. 

Our mantra is "Stability over Currency"
Please feel free to report any problems in this thread (but you won't have any!)

Completes the runtime requirement for the ATI Catalyst Control Center.  Contains .NET 2.0 & VC 2005/2008 installers (compatible with Windows 2000/XP/2003).
Only required if you do not already integrate .NET and VC 2005/2008 in your source.
.NET 2.0 installer graciously donated by YumeYao.  A .NET All-In-One (2.0, 3.0, 3.5) installer is also available for download.  Just replace dotnetfx.exe in this package with the .NET AIO if desired.
Only required for ATICCC compatibility and ONLY if you don't already integrate your own method of .NET/VC++ runtime installers.
Do NOT use if you already have .NET/VC++ runtimes integrated into your source.

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

well at least two of them did!

Once again a simply outstanding job Mr_Smartepants!

No news is always the best sign of success! Sad but true...

Well done sir... you're my hero!

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

The download was amazingly fast!

Already tried on my old ATI system and it works! (as expected)

I'm going to load on a few nVidia systems too and will post if any issues (none expected)

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

Hum...didn't find the following:

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_029A&SUBSYS_019B1028&REV_A1\4&1C9EC085&0&0008: NVIDIA Quadro FX 2500M

I've never tested this before, so I don't know if it worked with older packs.  It is a laptop, Dell Precision M90.

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

How to I download anything? I went to Simple CDN and and found no link to download - just comments about how great they are.

Hmmm.  I'll have a look but I'm positive that is supported.
*Edit,
Yes, it's supported in DriverPack Graphics A\N1\nv4_go.inf.  But if you can, try to move that .inf to DriverPack Graphics A\NM\ and retest.  It shouldn't make a difference, but it may.
Can you post/email your setup***.log files?

LOL, you need to look at the main page and click the "downloads" menu item.  http://driverpacks.net/downloads
SimpleCDN just owns the host where our files are stored. smile

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

Logs here:

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?zlhgmzgyd2g

I'll make the change you suggest and test that today.

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

Awesome work dude! This is a huge undertaking!

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

Moved A\N1\NV4_GO.INF to A\NM\NV4_GO.INF

No change...still doesn't find it. sad

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

Can you also upload the setup***.log files too from %windir%
I need to see why XP setup is skipping that .inf.

In the meantime, I'll go through the .inf and see if I can see anything I may have missed.
*Edit
Oh crap.  I spotted yet another typo in that .inf (it was full of them).
Here's how to fix it while I upload a final revision.
find/replace all instances of:
nv4_WSApps_NV3x_Mobile
with
nv_WSApps_NV3x_Mobile

and:
nv4_NV3x_Mobile
with
nv_NV3x_Mobile

That'll fix it!!!

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

Logs are here:
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?ijnwnqwx4xz

I assume the changes above are in NV4_GO.INF?

I assume I move A\NM\NV4_GO.INF back to A\N1\NV4_GO.INF?

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

Yes on all.

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

Testing underway.  Will report back shortly.

EDIT: Either I screwed it up, or there is more to it because it didn't work.  I'll collect up my setup logs and NV4_GO.INF file and post them shortly. sad

EDIT: NV4_GO.INF and setup log here: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?ktmlglmyljr

All DriverPacks are available from links on our home page here at DriverPacks http://driverpacks.net/driverpacks

But the easiest way to do it is just to use the update checker page in DriverPacks BASE wink.

That is a quote for the books Jeff. Perhaps a FAQ question tongue

OK, I know where the problem lies now.  Thanks for the logs.  They pointed to the problem.
I'll make my changes and post the corrected .inf for you to test.

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

OK, I rebuilt the nv4_go.inf file.
Can you replace your old .inf with the one in this archive (link removed) and retest please?

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

I'm happy to retest, but I'm out of town until Saturday.  I'll try to squeeze in the test Saturday and report back then.  Thanks for all your hard work on this!!!!

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

OK, I understand.  This time of year it's difficult for everyone to find time for these projects when the focus is family/friends/festivities! big_smile
I'll incorporate the new .inf into DriverPack Graphics A 9121 as I'm sure it will solve the problem.

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

Updated first post with temporary download link for DriverPack Graphics A 9121.
Corrected major failures in N1\nv4_go.inf

Re: Graphics DriverPacks are final!

THANK YOU for the finalized Graphic Packs.

YOU GUYS ROCK bigtime.

I have been checking the Nightlies, and when I went there today to build a new XP Pro SP3 disk, there were no newer files than those I already had.

Great!

Then I run BASE and I'm told THERE ARE UPDATES, which I am downloading now at what appears to be a speed faster than my ISP provides (is your speed math correct on the download rate???) - normally maxxed out at 350KB/sec and your updater reports well over 400KB/sec. Hey - I'll take it, whatever it is, but wanted to give y'all the feedback.

My experience building with the latest Nightlies has been excellent, so whatever you're doing, KEEP DOING IT, PLEASE. <grin>

Yes, the BASE update notification works great, just like all the rest of the Driver Packs. Wim will be proud.

OK, back to the build grindstone. Consider this a BIG THANKS from a Big Fan in Atlanta, GA.

Best holiday wishes to you and your families and circle of friends, now and always!
