Information for anyone struggling with a PC, PPro CS5.5, Quadro 2000, and nvidia drivers 267.17 or 270.71:
This past week-end I struggled getting PPro CS5.5 to run right on the system I just built. WIN7 x64, 2 PNY Quadro 2000 video cards, nvidia drivers 267.17 & 270.71 both caused random crashes, and caused seize-ups/Not Responding's during conversion of projects from CS5. WIN 7 x64 always pointed back to an nvidia 64-bit .dll Bummer! Then when I checked Windows Update, there was a sizable update for nvidia, about 150 MB. Turns out that that update loaded the nvidia driver 267.79 (188.8.131.5279), and guess what? ALL IS OK FOR NOW! Yay!
I saw in an earlier discussion that nvidia is working on a 270.73 that will address these crashes, I'll keep my fingers crossed that all remains well until that release is out.
Thanks to Adobe and nvidia for addressing this!
Well, I am pleased to report that my setup runs just fine with the new NVIDIA 270.73 drivers!
PPro CS5.5 converts projects from CS5 just fine, and it ran the PPBM5 benchmark just fine.
