Important info for NVSTRAP/RIVERTUNER Users.

After some much needed help from Unwinder here is how you can run the newer
(than 30.30) nvidia drivers with rivertuner.

UNINSTALL NVSTRAP DRIVER FIRST!!!
Reboot
UNINSTALL NVIDIA 30.30 (Windows Add/remove programs)
Reboot
Run the Detonator 30.xx to 40.41 fix (Can be found at www.guru3d.com nvidia
files)
Reboot
Install the new driver (I used 41.03)
Reboot
look in the rivatuner folder there is a tree like this
Rivatuner\Patchscripts\NVSTRAP Antiprotection\NVStarp Antiprotection w2k.rts
run this file
click the comtinue button then browse to winnt\system32\drivers and select
the nv4_mini.sys file and run the script. (this removes the anti NVStrap
from the driver)
Now reinstall the NVStrap driver as usuall and reboot and you should be away
laughing....

brian, did you get any better performance out of this driver? perhaps IV6 isn't so sluggish....hopefully? -Joe

I don´t think that sluggishness comes from the viewport performance of Inventor, what I noticed is that it really kicks your CPU´s bud if you have great amount of parts in an assembly. Even if I only try to move and rotate assembly it starts to compute, that should not happen while that´s the job of the video card. So my guess is that it won´t effect the mentioned sluggishness that you noticed !!

Brian, I have been trying to do this and I cannot get it to work. I think I
am doing it wrong because I cannot find the "Detonator 30.xx to 40.41 fix"
and I get an error when I try to apply softquadro. Can you describe what
nvstrap is and what I need to do to make my geforce 2 gts into a quadro?

Thanks,
Jeremiah

*** Must be running Win2K - WinXP
***Download and install the detonator driver version 41.03*** from
www.guru3d.com
*** Reboot***
Download Rivatuner from www.guru3d.com
look in the rivatuner folder there is a tree like this
Rivatuner\Patchscripts\NVSTRAP Antiprotection\NVStarp Antiprotection
w2k.rts
run this file
click the comtinue button then browse to winnt\system32\drivers and select
the nv4_mini.sys file and run the script. (this removes the anti NVStrap
from the driver)
run rivatuner.exe
Click on the little button on the first page besdie the word customise
Click on customise low level settings
Click on NVSTRAP driver (if not there I had to reboot a couple of times
Click install nvstrap
Force quadro features on
***reboot***
Your card should now be recognised as a quadro, and the speed is much
better...


After installing NVSTRAP. The big thing to check is if you
open a Inventor window then goto tools, app options, hardware, diag INV also
should see your card as a Quadro now not a geforce

You can never reboot to many times ;-)

It will make your GF4 show as a Quadro4 to some
degree but it will not make any difference to any type of performance. So in
short NO it will not work for a GF4.

Brian,
Will this do any good for old Elsa Gloria II's? I think these are Plain Quadro's?

Thanks

It can help overclock it, but not much more

Thanks Brian, I did that and it sorta works. Windows sees it as a quadro 2
pro, and it feels faster, but inventor still thinks it is a geforce 2 gts.
I am happy that it is faster, but I don't know why inventor does not
recognize is as a quadro.
