That's just what I was referring to. It downloads all right, but patching the driver results in spinning beachball... MKL lets one to edit plist easily inside the kext and makes sure the permissions are set correctly.

Can you give me a patched NVDAStartupWeb.kext by NVIDIA Web Drivers Updater.app? thanks

It never produces one nowadays, but I'll need to see about that after I've installed the security update...

So i would change the NVDAStartupWeb.kext .plist by hand! I always do that with an .plist editor (even Textedit would work).

Simple copy that .kext to desktop, Finder show content, open .plist and edit the .plist.

Then use some kext install utility to install that changes .kext from desktop to /S/L/E. ( i use Kextwizard, old but good).

After that, the prelinked kernel  automatically should have been updated (newer time date than before) , but can take up to 1 Min after finishing the util/kext install.

IDK what negative impact by doing these; except "invalid signature". But on 10.11.6 (15G1502) NVIDIA WebDriver-346.03.15f07 just loaded & it works.  :)

That's just what I do, but as an editor I like to use aforementioned MKL... Let's see what happens when i have the time to tinker.

If only I could try Sierra, but my Mini isn't new enough...
