    will newer nvidia driver versions work on old windows 10 builds


    for example assume i tried to install nvidia driver version 445.87 on windows 10 build 1511. will i be allowed to do that or i won't and i will get an error message during the setup which says i am installing driver on an incompatible version of windows?

    if the setup worked then will everything be perfect or i will get issues like bsod which was mentioned on this post https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce...idia-drivers/?

    if i am not supposed to install new driver version on old windows 10 build then where does it say which build number does the new driver version support? i checked the release notes of nvidia driver version 445.87 and it doesn't mention anything about unsupported windows 10 builds

    :)

    will newer nvidia driver versions work on old windows 10 builds

    From the NVidia DL site:

    Since it is broken down by Family OS, not version, it seems to imply version independent. I do not know that for certain.

    You would probably have to ask the NVidia Tech Support people to get a definitive answer that is documented.

    will newer nvidia driver versions work on old windows 10 builds

    this is hypothetical. i am currently on build 1809. i just want to know if new nvidia driver is supported on old windows 10 builds. if not supported then i need to know where it says which build numbers the new nvidia driver supports

    i am not updating nvidia driver from device manager and i am running the setup file which i download from the nvidia website
