NVCleanstall installation issues in Windows 11

Scenario:

I am running Windows 11 build 22449.1000 and NVCleanstall version 1.10.0. Whenever I try to install Nvidia driver version 457.30 through NVCleanstall, the installation fails with error "Nvidia installer failed"

If I download and try to install the same Nvidia driver (457.30) directly from Nvidia's website, the driver installation completes without any errors.

I have not tried to install a different Nvidia driver through NVcleanstall to check if the issue is still reproducible.

Prior to updating to Windows 11 build 22449.1000, I never had any issues installing drivers through NVCleanstall.

Questions:
Is anyone else able to reproduce this behavior in the same Windows build?
Is there a way to review logs for when this issue occurs?
Will NVCleanstall have an official support announcement for Windows 11?

Thanks in advance!

I have not seen Build 22449.1000 anywhere - is that a DEV build? As far as I have seen, 22000.176 is the latest Beta build.......

Build 22449.1000 was released on 9/2 for both Beta and Dev channels, this might explain why you haven't seen it yet: Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22449 | Windows Insider Blog

I'm not sure if Windows doesn't like NVCleanstall anymore due to the fact that the driver signature is not from an official source, but it is purely speculation on my end, since I do not have any data backing up my claims

I totally agree with you, but I wanted to check if anyone else has run into this problem and if someone can help figure out how to get this fixed.

There should be a log file somewhere in program files or similar, anything useful in that?

Will definitely do testing for NVCleanstall compatibility once we're getting closer to RTM

I've rolled back to Windows 11 build 22000.176 and installing drivers from NVCleanstall are working as expected. Windows is running great as far as it goes
