I can't install PhysX(error 2738)
Hi, I downloaded the latest driver and it fails when it tries to install PhysX. I tried to install it manually but just gives the error 2738. I've seen a lot of other topics withthe same issue but none of them has a solution for my problem. I'm running on a win 7 x64 build and I don't have any PhysX version installed, because I tried to launch the Supersonic Sleed demo and it said so. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance, Mike

I have the solution!!!! All you have to do is to download this:[url]http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe[/url] My problem was related with McAffee AV that I previously had installed. That software removes all the traces and then I just was able to install PhysX again. Hope it solves your promblem too.

This fix works for both 32 bit and 64 bit Win 7. Had same issue, nothing else worked. But this did. Note to Nvidia: Fix your installer please. http://yetanothercomputingblog.blogspot.ca/2011/12/error-2738-occurs-when-installing-msi.html
