Hey, thank you for your work, the utility is really cool!

Please help me to fix this issue. I usually install drivers via Revo Uninstaller so that when I need to uninstall them - there will be no (hopefully) traces left. And usually I used NVCleanstall with the following options:

- picked graphics driver (required) and usb-c (for an unknown reason there's a device for it in the list of devices, although my 1660ti has no visible usb-c ports);
- checked disable telemetry and clean installation

And then, when I tried to install it via Revo Uninstaller, it would install just fine.

Today I updated NVCleanstall from 1.6 to 1.7 and downloaded the latest driver which is 451.67, I did everything like usual but added 2 expert tweaks - disable driver telemetry and enable MSI, and it failed to install via Revo Uninstaller, it said "Error: NVCleanstall settings file not found". When I then tried to run setup.exe directly (not via Revo) - it seemed like everything got installed like usual.

So my question is - how to fix that so that I install it through Revo Uninstaller?

Hmm good question, this might be a Revo Uninstaller issue.

When you select "Disable driver telemetry" it rebuilds the digital signature on the installer files, and signs them with a certificate it creates

NVCleanstall settings file not found
With certain tweaks the original NVIDIA setup.exe gets renamed to setup.nvc and NVCleanstall puts its own setup.exe there, so it can control the setup process. This error message is when "NVCleanstall.ini" cannot be found.

Does that file exist next to setup.exe ?
