Physx install questions
I am running a 9800 gx2 on a asus p5n-d motherboard(on 64 bit vista)and would like to install physx, I'm a little confused on how to install it all. I downloaded the 177.40 drivers and installed them, then I installed the physx 8.06.12 software. From what i have read there is suppose to be a seperate physx control panel in windows control panel, and i do not have a physx control panel. Also if i open the nvidia physx properties on the info page it states; No AGEIA physx processor installed. The physx processor portion right below it is also blank. Are there other drivers that must be installed too? What am I missing?

Thanks in advance

Nothing since you have no Ageia card. In that panel click the next few tabs and it'll say "GeForce PhysX."

I simply dumped my Ageia physx software that came with Vantage when I installed Nvidia PhysX.

I was told by someone at xfx support that we didn't need the seperate phys-x driver if we had the new drivers with it included.
I have the 177.39 drivers myself.
If you go into windows explorer click on the name of the hard drive you have it installed on.
As soon as you open it up look for the Nvidia folder and click on it .
click through the folders until you get into the last one with all the contents showing.
Look for the icon that says PhysXsetup and click on it.
This will now install Phys-x on your computer.
No go into your start menu and look for this in your list of programs.
NVIDIA PhysX Properties
Click it and you can play around with some of the demos or applications demonstrating Phys-x.
