That's simply an unusual graphics card for a professional workstation. Try to find a different, older driver that may be more compatible or at least configure it in such a way, that e.g. CUDA is turned off and AE doesn't even try to detect it.
Many thanks for the quick revert.
So whilst i would try and get a new GPU soon, could you suggest how can i
get around in the meanwhile? Have already tried the older version of the
driver but it isn't helping.
Also, I am assuming that working on the Windows 7 Professional Edition
(without Service Pack 1) will not have any impact on the installation? Cos
all the CC system requirements say windows 7 service pack 1, however
everything else is working fine except AE.
You must have Service Pack 1 installed. Many things will fail otherwise. That's what the system requirements mean.
