Internal tests showed that it could be the case, but then everyone must run on 190.xx drivers.

No schedule for the change yet.


first post in that thread.

your right in a way, the apps page still shows the old cuda version still listed, you shouldn't be getting this message unless GDF disabled the 2.2 version for today. my apologies..

You should be able to get the 2.2 version.
What client version do you have?

When this started happening it was v6.6.36. Tried v6.6.37 and now 6.10.0. Still getting no work:

GTX 260 with NVidia drivers 185.81, Windows XP64, has run great before this change :-(

It should work now. We were requiring 185.88 for cuda2.2.

Message 12182 - Posted: 28 Aug 2009 | 14:33:21 UTC

Hi guys,

Just attached to this project last night.

I am getting the following error;

8/28/2009 10:15:18 AM GPUGRID Message from server: Can't use NVIDIA GPU app for Full-atom molecular dynamics: NVIDIA driver version 18200 or later needed

I have a GTX 295 running v186.35 drivers.

I am using BOINC 6.6.36

Any ideas?

Thanks,
R

You should get it with 190.xx but we have to check on the error message.

Any help on this, guys?

I'll have to detach from this project if I can't get it to work.

Many thanks,

Instead of this once the project sent me a WU, it crashed very quickly.

186.35 and 185.81 are both beta drivers, right? I'd try a WHQL one. And when in doubt (i.e. already crashed some WU) also use the driver sweeper.
