I've been using it for about a month now. My PC is an 'All In One' box and there are no side affects for other computing uses. Windows 10 behavior with Nvidia wants stereoscopic to always be enabled and after booting into windows they do exactly that. This presents multiple problems developers did not consider for some users under certain circumstances. Unfortunately, toggling stereoscopic on and off in a .bat command no longer works properly with the switch using W10 so this is how to fix that bug. This new task will now toggle nvstlink to disable when user starts or logs on to windows. When 3D is needed, the code will enable and disable when it's no longer needed so everything functions normally during a session. Upon the next start or logon, this task will ensure another smooth transition. This is important because a session may consist of various 2D and 3D viewings.
I'm going to assume you and others can read the directions without pics. There are many ways to do this but I suggest you do it exactly like this:

Open Task Scheduler.
In the left pane, highlight Task Scheduler Library.
In the right pane, select New Folder and name it Stereoscopic.
In the left pane, expand Task Scheduler Library.
Right click Stereoscopic folder and select Create Task.

General tab/Name/ type Stereoscopic.
Check Run only when user is logged on and Run with highest privileges.
Configure for: Windows 10 or whatever your O/S is.

Triggers tab/New
Begin the task: At startup.
Enabled is the only thing checked.
Select Ok.
Select New again.
Begin the task: At logon.
Check Any user and Enabled then click Ok.

Actions tab/New
Start a program.
Browse to "C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\3D Vision\nvstlink.exe".
Add arguments (Optional): Type /disable.
Click Ok.
Click Ok again.

When windows boots to the desktop, your panel will flash to black for a moment. This is stereoscopic being disabled via your new task and allows the codes to function as they did using older O/S's and drivers.

Please rate this thread as you see fit and let me know if this works as well for you as it does for me.


I have been working my way through this guide step by step and have stumbled across the same issues which triggered your solution above. The only difference is that I am using Intel Graphics as opposed to Nvidia. I have a win 10 installation with PDVD 15. Any ideas how to fix for Intel? Would appreciate any hints / suggestions.

Also one additional point. My display is 4k and when the BD playback in PDVD stops, it.changes my setting in Win 10 to the native 4K screen resolution although I was using 1920 X 1080 (3D) prior to starting playback.
