Hi all,

I'm having an issue in which Visual Pinball (latest version) won't open when I have Geforce Experience enabled (latest version) for Shadow Play.  I see it running as a process in task manager.  I've tried installing latest drivers, running as admin, card is a 3080.  I know it's Geforce Experience because when I uninstall it, VPX opens right up.   I need Shadow Play for pinup recordings.  Any suggestions?  Thanks ahead of time.

Wonder if GeForce experience is the cause of all the issues with the latest VPX beta people have been having?

So I found out on my particular system (VP Cabs Wizard with upgraded 3080 card), VPX won't start unless I uninstall Geforce Experience, or stop the NVContainer service.  I thought this might be because I had an AMD card in previously.  I did an AMD clean-up tool run but did not resolve the issue.  I was able to remediate by launching the VPX.exe in Windows XP compatibility mode.  So far so good.

@ Wiesshund, I was going to try OBS next if I had no luck with Shadowplay.  Thanks.

no problems here with gf experience with an rtx 3070, but I'm still using an old version from 2021 (for various reasons).
