Nvidia Inspector help needed W8.1

Recommended Posts

Trying to run Inspector in W8.1 for legacy 3D.

 

It needs .NET Framework 3.5 but even with an internet connection, the files won't download. :confused:

 

Anyone have a work around or the files in "stand alone" format for installation?

This program works really nice, you need to have your install media plugged in and point to where it says on the link. So download from first link and read second link.

Download Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Offline Installer for Windows 8 and Later - AskVG

 

Or you can mount or extract your iso and use command line which shows you commands at bottom of this link.

I didnt use the above installer websmile posted because I didnt want internet but if you already installed internet than that might be easier. I feel like it didnt work for me but I might be remembering wrong.

Most of that is beyond me, but the last option leads to hours of this bar scrolling on the screen. :D

I would use the program, all you do is open the program and point the installer to the place they show which is your usb drive with the install media and then it's done in like 2 min or less. All you do is open the program and click the drive letter where the install media is under installation settings and then click start installation and it does it for you. it's like 1-2min. The program is that first link in my google drive, the second link is instructions but just do what I listed above.

 

So

 

- download program

 

-open program

 

-under "Select windows install media" click on the drive letter where your usb drive is plugged in. (must still be plugged in) You shouldnt have to touch the second drop down, it should change itself once you select the drive letter in first drop down.

 

- then click start installation

 

I think I downloaded the program because I had same trouble as you. It was the only thing that helped me.

The app worked!

 

Thank you.

 

Why do they make it so difficult?

 

 

I dont know, I think it's some sort of bug but I am a little software challenged. I went thru exactly what you did and was so happy I found that app, maybe there is a better way but it's the only thing that worked for me. Plus it works without internet. Glad you got it going.

Easier: Use newer inspector, I had to do that to avoid installing net framework... Newer inspector simply runs on w8.1 / w10 without installing anything...
