Worked fine on Windows 64 Bit - Nvidia GTX 460, it told me it was up to date and I recently updated it, so yeah good job.

[QUOTE=Ashley]@Kyatric & others - if it didn't detect the card, did the link to Device Manager work and allow you to find the name of the card?[/quote]
Yup it launches the device manager.

[QUOTE=Ashley]Was that process straightforward to identify + update the driver still?[/QUOTE]
It should indeed.
As I said, I've made it so my laptop only works as a local server, cut from internet.
It feels like the driver for my laptop I should get from Toshiba's website anyway, and not Nvidia's.
For now I'm not really wanting to update those anyway, I have a small harddrive on this computer, and hardly execute (graphical) applications on it.Kyatric2012-02-25 02:46:18

OK, here's beta 2:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15217362/graphics-driver-updater-b2.zip

Changes:
- added 'copy' link by graphics card name so you can easily copy+paste it
- tweaked the graphics card detection code. It should be slightly more likely to successfully detect your hardware. Let me know if anything's changed for you.

@pencilrebel - have you tried installing the latest drivers directly from nVidia?

@Ashley - false alarm - have a look here - http://www.scirra.com/forum/topic62315_post382587.html#382587
Possibly some option for a future to solve any graphics problems for VMWare acceleration.

Hi. I tried updating my NVIDIA driver a couple of days ago and after 25mis downloading it came up with a message NVIDIA Installer cannot continue
this graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware

I am female 54 and sometimes frazzled but would like to try to understand this so I can make some progress in trying to make a simple game.
Thank you for your time

@Aziones Do you know what graphics card you have and which operating system you're on?

If you can, go to Device Manager (in the control panel) and click on Display Adapters, it should list at least the card series under there.
