[solved]  incorrect driver version
Downloaded Beta v5.79-3390, but when I try to run either the 64 bit or 32 bit version (my system is 64 bit), I get the following error:

Edit: I did an Uninstall after first seeing the error, but it did not help.
Please attach the Debug File of this problem, I will check that.
You might also try to go into "Driver Management" of main settings and check what's shown there. If it reports that a driver is installed, try to remove it.
Unfortunately I was unable to start that version so I could not generate a debug report.

But I did start the previous version and was able to deselect the persistent driver option, and I removed the existing driver. I then restarted with the newest beta and it loaded without issue.

I have never seen this problem before, and I believe the persistent driver option has always been selected.
Is there a benefit to having the persistent driver option selected or not?
Not much benefit for persistent driver currently other than a slightly improved startup time.
In the past it was thought to be used for running HWiNFO without Administrator rights, but this option won't be possible anyway. Since v5.79 there was a lot of work on hardening security of the kernel driver and among other updates it introduces an enforcement to be used with Administrator rights only.
This problem should no longer occur in v5.79-3395 Beta.
