At the last page, actually you have 2 options: the possibility to open the temp folder where the extracted driver is, and to install the driver. It would be nice to add a third option for creating a new slimmed repackage of the driver, with only the features that I've selected before. This would be a time saver, having a ready-to-go repackaged driver and not worrying about repeating the entire procedure again.
Another interesting feature regards the MSI mode, actually there is the possibility to set it on or off, just add the option also to change his priority to High.
The last question is about the driver telemetry experimental feature, i think that is buggy because it makes problems with some Anti cheat softwares (Apex Legends in my case), i think it should be fixed.
Sorry for my bad english.

Open the temp folder and copy it somewhere else, or do you mean "create a .exe installer with the contents of that directory"?

There's a thread here with a test build that fixes this

Yes, i mean this

I also tried this, but the setup of the driver doesn't start, idk why

I want to ask you another thing, in the temp folder the Geforce Experience folder appears, even if I did not select it from the list, is that normal? I'm using version 1.9.0

All I do is create a self extracting 7Zip from the temp folder of the slimmed install.

There’s also a few MB GeForce Experience folder under Program Files/Nvidia/installer. I’ve wondered about it.

Yes this is normal, some files from GeForce Experience are needed for the installer to work at all

Good suggestion, I'll add a button that creates a self-extracting ZIP

That folder can also be deleted

All you have to do for the installer to work is to remove these 3 lines from the setup.cfg file, right at the bottom

Code:
        <file name="${{EulaHtmlFile}}"/>
        <file name="${{FunctionalConsentFile}}"/>
        <file name="${{PrivacyPolicyFile}}"/>

Just a FYI, not saying you should change how you handle your software

Yeah, that's an option too. I felt like that's easier to break than just keeping those files

Yes I meant this, that is what I usually do, but it is a bit annoying to do on my own every time

Yeah, thanks!

I always do this too, because I was convinced that it was a bug of the program

Will work on the MSI changes next, the fix for Easy-anti-cheat is already included in the test build

I tested your build with the settings on the images, I made a build package and I installed the driver from it, no problems encountered.
I really like the new interrupt features, seems to work properly, the same also for the compatible Anti-cheat method.
I only have little stuttering problems on games with the HDCP disabled, I don't know if it's just my problem, maybe wait for more feedbacks about it.
Geforce experience folder still appears in temp, but I suppose you haven't worked on it at the moment.
Nice work, hope it helps

No plans to change that, the folder really contains only a few files that don't get installed
