Hello,

 

I'm trying to update my graphics driver. I have version 9.17.10.3347. The pc is an HP P6-2326s. I bought it 2nd hand about 4-5yrs ago. I added a HDD & installed Win 8 from HP provided disks. Updated to 8.1. No issues there. Tonight I downloaded the latest driver from HP's site, SP64086.exe. When I try to install it I get a doesn't meet minimum requirements error message (9996).

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

This can be caused by not having the .NET Framework support all installed. Check what .NET version(s) are installed, depending on what version the installer needs, if it's looking for Ver 3.x or lower support, Ver 3.5 should be present, if it needs Ver 4.x, the current is 4.7.2

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/install/on-windows-8-1

 

If both are installed, then that's not going to be the cause.

Do you have Ver 3.5? That provides support for all .NET versions 3.x and older, 4.7.x only provides support for Ver 4.x

I'll have to check when I get home. If I don't, do I just download that version? I guess I just thought having the latest took care of all .net functions?

Follow the link I posted, it has instructions.
 
Their explanation is:
 
"The .NET Framework 4.7.2 can be used to run applications built for .NET Framework 4.0 or later."
"The .NET Framework 3.5 supports apps built for .NET Framework 1.0 through 3.5."

OK, I've installed 3.5 & restarted. Tried installing the driver update again, still the same error message.

I have to ask - why are you trying to install this graphics driver update ?

 

Are you having graphics driver problems or has your graphics hardware suddenly developed problems ?  As a general rule drivers do not need to be updated so long as they are still working. I would have said that so long as your graphics were working satisfactorily following the 8.1 update leave well enough alone !  The mere fact that a later driver exists is not sufficient reason to install it.

I want to play a new mod for my favorite game (Supreme Commander Forged Alliance). Here is the link: https://www.moddb.com/mods/loud-ai-supreme-commander-forged-alliance.  "The installer will create a parallel set of files for your Supreme Commander FA installation so that your original game remains untouched, and you can use the installer to not only keep the package updated, but switch easily back and forth between LOUD and your original installation. The updater also acts as a launcher so that you can run your game from the installer after checking for updates."

When I try to run it, I get an error message saying it "failed to create Direct3D. Please ensure system has current video drivers." I can play the original game fine & am not aware of any other video glitches other than being an older system.

I had a look at the link you supplied and the LOUD modification to this game seems to be fairly well supported both with a forum and a Discord server. You might have more success seeing what your fellow players there have to say, it's always worth asking fellow enthusiasts.

 

Sorry I can't add anything more to what Platypus said.
