If possible, roll back to 1703. 1709 is incompatible with Nthusim 4.1. Microsoft broke Nthusim 4.1 in the recent Fall Creators Update 1709.

Hi Brad
Decided to go back to windows 7 64bit.
In doing so, will NTHUSUM Plus version 4.1.296 work, or will I have to roll back
to an earlier version.
Sorry will you activate my NTHUSIM again.

Hi Brad
I have updated to Windows 10 today. Can you re-activate my license, please?
Will there be a fix for the newest Windows 10 versions? To be honest I don't know exactly how to roll back.
Best regard

Windows 10 1709 is an issue with the dwm desktop mode and Nthusim 4.1. At issue, I've spoken to ImmersaView and they've got no timeline on fixing the issue. I suggest using Windows 10 1703 or older and turning off windows update after OS install. If needed I can get you a link to an ISO of Windows 10 1703 to use. Problem is Microsoft keeps on doing quarterly OS patches on Windows 10 that always break dwm desktop mode. It's becoming diminishing returns for ImmersaView to support Windows 10 at this rate because they're constantly having to fix dwm desktop mode. This is an issue with ImmersaView and I have no control over their manpower as an independent contractor with Nthusim.

If you're using P3D as your primary sim, at issue, it uses dwm desktop warp mode to fix menu rendering in the sim, so you'll need to use an OS version compatible with Nthusim 4.1's dwm desktop warping.

I use the utility below to turn off windows 10 updates. I've been using it for awhile now with good success. If you can get Windows 10 1703 installed and use this, you should be ok till things are addressed with ImmersaView for a solution.

Thanks for all the information.

I mainly use Assetto Corsa. But I also use the PC for other games using Steam In-Home Streaming for non-Nthusim applications.
So I am not sure how well it will work with not having the latest Windows.
I planned using PCI passthrough with KVM to virtualize Windows and have two differently configured version. But NVidia the graphics card when the driver detects a virtualization.

Maybe I will setup dual boot for this PC.

Understood. If you need dual-boot let me know so I can accommodate for license. The license system is tied to hardware fingerprint, so different OS will require two licenses, but since it's really one machine, I'll over-ride that limitation manually by assigning you a second license. If it was a totally different computer that'd be another matter, but if it's on the same machine, I'll work with you to ensure you have 2 licenses without needing a second sale for the single computer dual-boot usage case.
