Google Earth 5.0 problem

So I downloaded the Google Earth beta 5.0 from Google's website the other day and it worked fine. I just installed the latest WDDM 1.1 driver for my 8800 GTX and now when I try and open up Google Earth I get an error message "Driver components mis-match. Exit is the only option". What in sam hell does this mean?

Have you tried reinstalling GE? There might have been a conflict during the new driver installation..

GE creates two additional shortcuts to control the rendering mode.

Start in OpenGL mode (googleearth.exe" -setOGL)
Start in Directx Mode (googleearth.exe" -setDX)

Have you tried running these? not sure which is the default OOB so if not try both and see if this resets anything for you

"Exit is the only option" Does it actually say that in the error message, don't know why but that is quite funny, sounds like something you hear in a film.

Hi, I am hoping some can help me out.
I am trying to install GE and it does not let me and says "access denied error code 9."
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
