Just bought and installed a new EVGA RTX 2060 XC Ultra and I have tried the EVGA driver and after unpacking and running a system check, it says it cannot install on this version of Windows and I will have to install the 'standard' driver from NVidia. I downloaded and installed that driver and it tells me the same thing. "Cannot install on this version of Windows."
And that's it.
Before closing it on the 4th attempt, I went to the directory and opened the inf file and there are clearly drivers for the RTX cards.......When I try to manually force the location and file into windows, it shows all the drivers in the inf EXCEPT RTX.
I am running Windows 10 Pro 64bit US English, nothing special about it. It is activated and 100% legit.
Any ideas?
 
UPDATE!
I do not know why it was hanging up.
I installed driver version 419.35 and it went through without issue. It passed the system check and offered clean install option which I did.
I then tried to download and install version 442.19 and it would not install due to the 'windows version'.
I tried 436.48 and it went through complete without issue.
Again I tried 442.19 and this time it went through.
 
When a driver has 'clean install' options the system check should not be looking for a minimum previous version.
This driver acts like a update and not a full driver package.
A clean install should not leave anything behind but apparently some registry entries are not removed with these packages.
 
I verified that no updates or other applications were running in between all this.
 
Whatever it was, it is fully loaded and running now. So far I have had no issues with it and I have done a few benchmark apps to verify as well.
 
Thanks for all the responses.
Much appreciated.

    Make sure you actually downloaded the 64-bit driver, and make sure your windows install is fully up to date.

    Grab Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) and the latest Standard NVIDIA Display Driver..Then run DDU in Windows Safe Mode using the Clean and restart option..After restart, install the Standard NVIDIA Display Driver..See how that rolls.

    There have been a number of updates making it hard to know which update(s) aren't working well.
     
    MS updates
    Origin update
    MW update
    Nvidia update
     
    All within a day or two.
     
    I have only been playing two games recently, BF5 and MW, and both crash quickly. I have had to dumb my card 300 on the memory and 10 on the GPU clock just to keep the games running.
     
    I went back to the previous nvidia driver and no change. I'm thinking the MS updates are the issue or my card is failing. I did notice a gain in 2G of extra disk space reinstalling the earlier nvidia driver.

    My PC crashed several times after those MS updates but has since settled when it updated another patch to fix the original update(s).  I know, it can be amusing. lol

    DCH drivers cannot be installed over a standard system, and Standard drivers cannot be installed over a DCH system.
     
     
    https://www.geforce.com/drivers#
     
     FYI:  Windows Driver Type
     
    "Standard" packages are those that do not require the DCH driver components.
     
    "DCH" (Declarative, Componentized, Hardware Support Apps) refers to new packages preinstalled by OEMS implementing the Microsoft Universal Driver paradigm.
     
     
    To confirm the type of system you have, locate Driver Type under the System Information menu in the NVIDIA Control Panel.

    I was helping someone on Reddit with the same card and issue as you earlier this week. After troubleshooting, the actual resolution for them was simply to update Windows. Now obviously this might not be your solution but, out of curiosity, is your Windows OS up to date?

    Yes, all up2date.
     
    I noticed MW had an update today and I believe Origin update as it was loading. 
     
    So far BF5 isn't trying to load Gsync but I'll have to disable read only on GForce and up my cards numbers again to see if all works as before all the recent updates.

    Just to make sure you have the latest Windows version, type winver in the search box and press Enter to open "About Windows"..Should be 1909.
     
    Use the Update Assistant to update to the latest version of Windows 10 if needed..Click "Update now" and then Run (or Save/Download) the Windows10Upgrade.exe from the popup.

    Driver 442.19 seems to be the source of all problems.
     
    Back to 441.87 (previous Driver) and issues resolved were.
     
    1) the increase in card temp (5c or so) now running cooler as before.
    2) crashes (except same old Dx12 on occasion with MW) but plays much better and cooler now.
    3) No forced Gsync. Thought Origin was the cause but it was the 442.19 driver forcing Gsync on.
       I uninstalled/reinstalled the two drivers three times and it is definitely the 442.19 driver forcing Gsync on.
    4) was able to bring 2080ti back up to prior memory/clock speeds.
