Just a heads-up for nVidia users (and possibly others as well). The Windows 10 "Creators Update" seems to have wiped out all my customised settings from the nVidia control panel. All the settings for each GPL .EXE file are gone. I was checking to make sure GPL ran properly after the update, and I noticed that I no longer had any anti-aliasing. Sure enough, when I went to the control panel, the settings were wiped.

So if anyone notices any graphical oddities when running GPL, check your settings. You'll probably find that they've been changed or wiped. :censored:

Thanks again for your excellent customer service, Microsoft! :wall:

Geez, what the heck are they doing over at MS?!? :blink:

Thanks god I decided to stop at WIN7 and not do any more update since the end of 2016.
I'm happy with this settings bu I have also installed Linux mint 18.1 and it seems to work pretty well too.

ginetto, I sure hope that you mean you don't do ALL updates (ie suggestions, drivers, etc) but DO install all security updates.  There is a very nasty piece of Malware circulating the globe right now.  Please allow all security updates on your Win 7 system.  :)

Good to have the NVIDIA Inspector saved my settings,
I can allways restore them and even edit them, e.g. when 55s came I just added the gplc55.exe manually ;)

Glad I too kept my windows 8 HP laptop and my Windows 7 (used to be Vista) Toshiba laptop and not upgrading to Windows 10 :color:  

Having said that I feel for people like Saiph and others here,who have used Windows for GPL and gaming for years.Now ending up with total anarchy on their machines :hb:

With the recent cyber attacks it seems Microsoft are teetering on wobbly legs and shoving out updates(even though you need security updates) without giving the user the choice and chance to review them :dino:

Hope you sort things out Saiph :thumbup:

TP:

Thanks for the tip! I've just downloaded it and will try it out ASAP. :thumbup:
(All settings are back to normal now and GPL is looking as pretty as ever. It's actually fairly simple to do, it's just a pain to have to repeat the same settings for each GPL EXE individually. Hopefully Nvidia Inspector will help with that in the future.)
