Shadowplay Desktop Capture requires Windows Aero?

#1LinkIsAboss77Posted 4/7/2014 9:07:07 PM
So after upgrading Geforce Experience to version 2.0 along with the new Nvidia beta driver, it's still not letting me enable desktop capture. I can see the option to enable it, but it's greyed out. I noticed on Nvidia's website that at first it says you only need to update Geforce Experience and your drivers to enable desktop capture, but then a couple lines down it says Windows Aero must be enabled...

Here's the link:

So I guess Windows 8 users aren't supported for the time being? Just want to make sure I'm not missing anything obvious. Any help/thoughts would be appreciated!

Yes it requires aero, I know there was a way around it before where you could cause a full screen game to crash then you could record the desktop probably would still work with W8. Now also keep in mind if I'm not mistaken shadowplay is still in beta so features might not be 100%

Alright cool that's what I figured, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something obvious xD And you're right it's still in beta. I'm sure they'll get it figured out soon enough though. Thanks!!

FYI, Windows 8 still uses Aero, they just did away with the glass effect.

I know what you're saying, but technically Windows 8 ditched Aero. Even if most of the features of Aero are present such as hardware acceleration. And unfortunately the Shadowplay desktop capture beta agrees with me :/

Works fine for me on W8.1
