Vulkan - Not Appearing in Programs and Features (Control Panel) ??? 385.69 Nvidia Driver
Vulkan question: 385.69 Nvidia Driver "Vulkan Libraries" not installed / listed ?! Hey I used DDU to wipe my drivers and installed Nvidia's Latest Driver: 385.69. I picked custom install and only installed the driver + HD Audio Driver. (Unticking physx, 3D and Experience) I checked "Programs and Features" in control panel - and I don't see a program called: "Vulkan libraries" in the bottom of the list. Could it be that Nvidia had removed "Vulkan Libraries..." and perhaps merged it into the Nvidia Driver in a built in fashion? Can you please check if you have such am item called Vulkan Libraries? Nvidia - response please? Thanks. I'm playing Doom now and it uses Vulkan in a great way so I want Vulkan to be properly supported.

That is the latest version driver runtime version. the latest API runtime is 1.0.61.1, if you install the sdk.

[quote="Sora"]That is the latest version driver runtime version. the latest API runtime is 1.0.61.1, if you install the sdk.[/quote] Is it really necessary? What's an SDK? Please elaborate. I figured the version that comes with the latest Nvidia Driver will be the most relevant and up to date. If my current Vulkan is fine the way it is- I rather keep it that way.
