I get the error message: “This software requires a newer version of the graphics driver”. What is wrong?

This error message appears if the CUDA driver is insufficient to the CUDA runtime library. The most likely reason is that the graphics driver is too old. Download and update to the latest version and try again.

From version 6, IMPETUS Afea Solver requires CUDA 11 in order to utilize GPU acceleration. This means that the server needs to have CUDA 11 compatible drivers installed.

On 14th January 2020, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2012 reached the end of their life cycles and are no longer supported by Microsoft. Due to this, the latest Nvidia drivers no longer support these operating systems.
