I have Vista32, and a 9600GSO card.  I updated divers and NVIDIA desktop software several times up to version 197.45(  The latest drivers, 15.01 show as available in the NVIDIA control panel, as well as the 257.21 package, so I download them.  I run the installer as usual, it completes and I restart.  I check the driver version and it remains at 192.45.  I tried starting in safe mode and uninstalling the driver and reinstalling the new one and it goes through a successful install with restarts and everything, but the driver still shows as 192.45.
Is 15.01 was released in 2007.. And the control panel says that 256.21 is available, and that I do not have the latest drivers
I check settings through NVIDIA control panel version
How do I update in this case?
