Nvidia has been offering its drivers for Windows via nVidia Geforce Driver setup which includes Geforce Experience Center and the Nvidia Control Panel. The GeForce Experience is designed to let you optimize installed games, stream, record game plays and enjoy virtual reality. Whereas Nvidia Control panel is the main component of nVidia drivers, using nVidia control panel you can fine tune your Nvidia graphics card, overclock, adjust settings to suit your needs. Nvidia Control panel is designed for both novice as well as advanced users.
Considering the importance of nVidia Control center, Nvidia has launched its control panel app on Microsoft Store. Unlike the whole drive setup which is around 400+mb in size, the Nvidia Control Panel app is in 9MB in size while still offers same exact features that comes under driver setup.
Unfortunately, those who installed and tried run NVIDIA Control Panel app were greeted with a rather strange message which is as follow,
Supported NVIDIA Driver is not installed on your system.
To our surprise, we also received similar message, despite having the latest Nvidia driver installed and running on our Windows 10. The users too reported similar experience, even after having NVIDIA drivers installed, the NVIDIA control panel app ran into same error message.
Thankfully the fix for this issue is extremely small. Check the steps below to know how to fix it,

Thanx guys or girls!!!
I never make it without this information.
Not working for me.
It’s not working for me ?
Not working at all
This doesn’t work for me too. I have the latest dch driver installed (tried reinstalling multiple times) as I’m 100% sure this is the correct driver for my laptop with a 1660ti. The driver shows up in g force experience fine but when I install the garbage windows store Nvidia control panel app and try to open it I get an error message that the driver is not installed. On installing the app I do get the license agreement screen and the app installs ok too it seems. The registry value is also already set by default so I don’t need to change that either. I’m also unable to play games because the system defaults to use the (already disabled) onboard graphics chip.
When I name the registry it says that one already exists with that name
Same issue as everyone else with a newer build seems to have. That registry name already exists. Any further help on fixing this would be greatly appreciated!
I had this isse and was searching all blogs and forums for the answer with no luck. I eventually solved the issue myself:
1. Download the latest drivers for your GPU from nvidia, being sure to select DCH, not standard (worked for me)
2. Install the latest drivers, this will replace the current drivers with the new ones.
2. Launch nvidia control panel, should work fine, it did for me!
P.S. I’m new to computers but this definitely worked for me, I hope it helps you out too.
