Battlefield 1: Not able to launch (invalid driver version)

Issue

When trying to launch Battlefield 1 the game throws an error saying the Nvidia drivers are out of date.

Fix

  1. Navigate to C:/Windows/System32.
  2. Find a file called nvapi64.dll and rename it to _nvapi64.dll.

This file communicates with the Nvidia API. Renaming this file should allow the user to continue launching the game.
If you experience issues with other games after renaming this file, simply change the name of the file back to nvapi64.dll.
