  1. In case anyone from Microsoft is reading the newsgroups the latest video
    driver update for 8800 GTS videocards released yesterday via the Windows
    update for Vista do not work for supreme commander. Lockups and freezing in
    this game. Reverting to the latest NVIDIA beta driver version as shown on
    the guru of 3D website does not experience this problem.

    Was there actually a new NVIDIA 8800 driver released yesterday thru MS ? I
    didn't get offered anything for Vista64 in Windows Update, and when I forced
    the issue, all I got was the dreaded 100.65 whql re-installed. ?????

    Ok thanks, thats the one I've gone back to as well but its a beta, out
    courtessy of Guru3D or Tweaks R Us with modified inf file, and little thanks
    to Nvidia. It was just a wild hope that Nvidia may have finally released a
    new driver enabling a bit more of the supposed functionality of the rapidly
    aging "Vista Ready" (lol!!) 8800GTS card.

  5. I am unable to install any nVidia updates via MS Updates. "Update
    Unsuccessful" after many tries.
