For those doing a fresh install of Microsoft's latest Windows 10 operating system (version 1809 October 2018 Update), you may encounter an issue with NVIDIA graphics drivers. Namely, a message may pop up when you install the graphics driver, telling you "The standard NVIDIA graphics driver is not compatible with this version of Windows". The issue is caused by the operating system automatically installing the GeForce 398.36 DCH graphics driver through Windows Update, immediately after first log-on. DCH drivers are also known as "Universal Windows Driver", "UWD", "DCHU", and "Declarative, Componentized, Hardware Support App", and leverage the Windows UWP platform for driver control panels while promising simpler updates and maintainability.

If networking is available during the Windows 10 installation, the operating system will automatically look for a graphics driver on Windows Update, which is a good thing, as it simplifies the setup process for the majority of users. At this point, everything will appear to be fine, however, once you attempt to update from that driver to the newest version from NVIDIA's driver download page, the error will appear. This is highly frustrating for some users, who have been reporting the issue on several online forums, including NVIDIA's own, with little attention paid thus far from their developers.

Intel Graphics - Windows 10 Modern Drivers Version: 25.20.100.6444 (UWD)

WARNING: Failure to read the below may result in system instability

These new drivers labeled as either UWD (Universal Windows Driver) or Windows Modern graphics drivers aren't backward compatible with our previous graphics drivers we are now labeling Legacy. This means if later you want to revert to a Legacy driver you will need to uninstall the driver via Windows Apps and Features and reboot the system before installing a Legacy driver. Failure to do so may result in minor to major system instability.

DO NOT use the INF / Have-Disk method to install or uninstall this driver as it bypasses the Intel installer designed to install these new drivers, thereby possibly resulting in minor to major system instability. For this reason, we're not providing the ZIP file for the next several driver releases while users transition to this new Microsoft driver platform.

For more information about UWD/Modern drivers

Highlights:

  • Automatic Game Tuning Feature Updates
  • Intel’s First Windows* Modern Driver
  • Launch Driver Games

     

Introducing Intel’s Windows Modern Driver also called Universal Windows Driver (UWD).

For more information on Intel® Graphics Controllers supported

This Windows Modern driver requires an Internet connection for Windows to automatically download the Intel Graphics Control Panel from the Microsoft Store.

Earlier this year, Intel introduced a feature in the Graphics Control Panel to automatically tune game settings for Intel® Graphics on 6th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors or higher (including 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics). Today, we're adding new capabilities and supporting more games!
