10.13.6 build number vs CUDA WEB DRIVER

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I'm just struggling to get the CUDA driver installed on my Macbook Pro. (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014 , NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB ).


I have downloaded a 10.13.6 installer. (17G65)   I have checked the build version in: 

/Volumes/OS X Base System/System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist


so I am sure it is a correct version.


I did a clean install.

After the install, I have checked the build number in "About this Mac", and it is 17G66, (WTF???)  so therefore  can't install the web driver, cos it is written to 17G65, so I have got tis error message: "Mac OS X version 10.13.6 (17G66) is not supported with this package. Please see NVIDIA’s website for further driver information." 


After that, I'll start researching, I found this thread,  bad luck for me there is no driver  for built 17G66. 

Here are my questions:

- How can I install 17G65 ?

- I have seen, many other build version. Are they made for x86project, or can be install on original mac's?. If yes, is it safe? How can I get one of those installers?

- Any other way to install CUDA driver / WEB driver. On 10.13.6.?


all ideas are welcome

You could probably edit the file that carries the High Sierra build number or patch the Web Driver package to match build 17G66 (you can Google for both); however don't waste your time with High Sierra build 17G65 or 17G66, several builds followed through security updates, last one being 17G9016 released only a few days ago.


Update High Sierra to that latest build/security update through AppStore update, then proceed with installing the Web/CUDA Driver according to that thread you found.

HI Hervé,


Thank you for your reply. It's works well.


AppStore does not offer any updates. :-)  + WTF .

I have tried in terminal also by   softwareupdate -l, but "No new software available" 


Finaly found it by google.
