Use this standalone version if you need to update nView independently, without updating the NVIDIA Display Driver.”

Checked release notes on some older drivers, and it was part of those drivers as well. Not sure exactly what it does, since there is no settings to change or any active service running called nView. Perhaps more settings for those running Quadro?

Here are the release notes if someone has more time to dig in: https://us.download.nvidia.com/Windo...ease-notes.pdf




Think there was some temporary issues where they decided to disable it. They have done so before as well hehe
Yea, I've seen nview in quadro drivers before and thought it was exclusively for them. I figured it was so that businesses with multi monitor setups would have to buy quadros for the best support. Maybe windows 10 multi monitor support has gotten good enough to largely obviate it and they are trying to get some use out of it by tossing it in with geforce. Or maybe like you said: for quadro users running geforce drivers, if that is a thing.
Just seemed like an out of place freebie from Nvidia. It is a standalone thing if I remember right. I picked up a $30 kepler based quadro a couple years back to see if geforce drivers were holding back my tv's supposed 10 bit capabilities and mostly learned how geforce and quadro don't get along very well together.

Maybe it is a goof in the notes.
