Updating nVidia drivers: Standard vs DCH drivers

On December 9, 2019 nVidia changed all of their driver downloads to ‘DCH’ versions.  These drivers use a driver install package that require Windows 10 build 1803 or later for compatibility.  NewTek systems use Windows 10 LTSB (Long Term Service Branch) which running on a build of Windows before this version.  The LTSB version of Windows does not support ‘DCH’ packaged drivers, a standard driver installer is needed.  The functionally of the driver itself isn’t different between the DCH and standard version, just the method of installation.  

The drivers available from the main download link on the nVidia site will get you the DCH version of the drivers.  To get the correct drivers, follow this link to the driver search page that allows for standard drive downloads (nVidia Driver Download link) then go to step 5 listed below.  If you want to manually locate the page from the nVidia site, follow these steps. 

Note- There is not a functional difference between the DCH and standard version drivers; just a different method of installation.

  1. Go to
  2. Click on the Support link at the top of the page.


3. Click on the ‘Find the latest driver’ link.


4. Near the bottom of the page, click on ‘Beta and Older Drivers’


     5. Select these options for download:

  • Operating system is set to ‘Windows 10 64-bit is selected’
  • Windows driver Type is set to ‘Standard’
  • Recommended/Beta is set to ‘Recommended/Certified’

    6. Click on the 'Search' button.

    7. In the list of results, choose the ‘GeForce Game Ready Driver’ you want to download. Typically, you     want to choose the most recent driver that is still dated before the release of TriCaster you are installing.


  8. Click on the 'Download' button to get the driver.
