(Looks around the internet regarding Windows 8) Uhhh... don't knock yourselves out on this. If the driver team has some other projects they think might be more interesting to work on, I'm good with them being a little behind the Windows 8 release date.... or a lot behind....

You might ask Dell about it. Notebook computers sometimes do special things to their drivers. You're probably better off not doing the consumer preview (read: beta test), though. Wipe the drive and re-install your old OS.

Someone mentioned that it would be unheard of, that MS would not allow directx 11.1 in Windows 7. I think it will debut with Windows 8 but become available within the week or so with windows 7. It's only a 0.1 difference.

I got it on my TV computer. It's not bad and I could get used to it. MS might try to concentrate on making this OS less bulky since it will go on lower performance tablets and such. This might make it the better operating system if they concentrate on that rather than the usual bells and whistles.

Wonder what will be the first directx 11.1 game we get to try out?

I've just installed the consumer preview, and I can't get 3dTV Play to do much of anything. The option for Stereoscopic 3d don't show up in the Nvidia Control Panel, and running the setup seems to work but never gets to the actual activation program.

Anyone had any luck?

Cheers

Wish I could help but it works for me except when I try to use roller mod where the setup wizard does hangup. I am using latest drivers 295.73. . I have tested it w trine 2 and the straight 3dtvplay works great.

I'm using the Win8 drivers rolled out through Windows Update so I'm guessing that's where I'm running into problems. Rather than roll back I'll await an updated set and/or 3dtv play activation thing :)

W8CP with 3D Vision on GT435M *(driver 196.17) and IR USB adaptor. Photo viewer 3D works full screen but not windowed. Also, with the "Direct3D stereoscopic 3D sample" ([url="http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Direct3D-111-Simple-Stereo-9b2b61aa"]My link[/url]), IDXGIFactory2::IsWindowedStereoEnabled returns false.

Is this expected behaviour at current state of drivers or is there a W8CP compatible driver somewhere?

No sooner had I commented full screen Stereo 3D works on my Win8CP laptop, then Windows Update kicked in with 'NVIDIA driver update for NVIDIA Geoforce GT 435M'. Apparently this 'update' deleted the Photo Viewer program (though leaving the shortcut on my desktop) and Vision controller is missing from NVIDIA Control Panel/System Information/Components and can't get 3D at all.

Is a replacement update in pipeline?

Turns out that the Windows Update .cab didn't include the 3d vision driver etc. After installing the complete package from Nvidia (296.17) I once again have 3dtv play working! :)

Let's see if Dirt 3 still crashes /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

Yep, Dirt 3 still crashing although it's on loading rather than later as before.

Apparantly the WHQL 296.10 drivers don't suffer from this; reckon I should chuck these on Win 8 CP?

Trine 2 and Sonic Generations worked fine, so we're getting there! /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
