      KB4055532 – mass confusion!

      First listed as “Important” and checked, now shows up as unchecked

      “Uninstall Notes:
      This software update can be removed by selecting View installed updates in the Programs and Features Control Panel.”

      Shows up in ‘View Update History’ but not in ‘Installed Updates’ – can’t uninstall!

      to add to the confusion:



      “Please avoid installing this update on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.”

      Enlightment, please.

    • Nvidia UDA (Universal Driver Architecture)
      Supposed to fix all this nonsense about updating drivers (legacy/current models?)
      Problem: If using older graphics cards (including some that are being retailed today) (e.g. 8400GS, 210), there are no updated drivers for these, rendering the current value at about $10 per ton.
      Bigger Problem: Older Quadro Graphics cards (these were expensive when new) – According to Nvidia yesterday; “The Quadro FX4800 was released in 2008 and is a very old card.” “Since this has been EOLed, there will not be any more software fixes for it.” (last was Dec 2016). This is a driver problem not a hardware problem (as far as I know)!
      We have 5 CAD workstations here with those cards, two of which are SLI. These workstations function perfectly and now, through bad graphics drivers, are rendered to that $10 per ton scenario.
      Cost to repair (Used parts only = approx $2800 (this to return them to the same functionality as they are now.
      Able to purchase relatively inexpensive cards for the NAS’s (that’s where I saw shelves full of the earlier graphics cards (new)) that the 8205 drivers are not available for.
      Cost to repair (Used parts only = approx $2800.
      I don’t ever remember building drivers for these cards, I just installed ’em. Amazing how this happened all at once and with that many security problems???
