Windows 7: Install Nvidia control panel for Windows 7?

Install Nvidia control panel for Windows 7?

I have updated my nvidia graphics drivers (on my old PC - GTX660) - now 442.19 - and would really like to have nVidia Control Panel (Windows 7 x64) but cannot find a download site. The control panel is not included now of course in the display driver setup...

I have NCP on another Win7 PC, (though that has a GTX1070 - does that matter?). If I can't find an installer, is there a way to copy across the necessary files from there so as to have nVidia Control Panel working on the older PC too?

Or will some other application replace NCP and do a similar job?

Thanks!

I have an NVIDIA video card installed in my Win-7 PC, and the CP installed along with the driver. I don't need it though and never use it. I can do all the video settings that I need right from within Windows.


Why do you really need the CP?
Just curious.

nVidia appear to feel the same about the nVidia control panel, In windows 10 it's recently changed to an optional downloadable item, basic settings are made within Windows Settings

Try this link:

Microsoft Update Catalog

Half way down the page is the download for the GTX 660. I believe this will install the nVidia Control Panel. At least it did on my Windows7 Pro.

WORD OF CAUTION: Like any installation, be sure to create a restore point before installing this update.

Hope this helps...

OK, found that, thanks. Downloaded the (cab) file and ran the setup.exe. Result:

OK, I do in fact already have nVidia Control Panel! Problem is (and why I didn't see it before) that every time I connect a second monitor (in this case, my TV, via an HDMI connection), it shuts down and cannot be restarted until I close the connection to the TV. Have to Google that, but maybe someone knows why this would happen?
