For unknown reasons I decided to force the new Windows 10 Creators update rather than wait for it. Now running Amicable Numbers on GPU and it lists "GPU is Missing." Mad There's some info on this at links below, but they mainly complain Boinc doesn't run at all. Mine runs, but doesn't recognize GPU. Using latest Nvidia driver. I don't see what to do other than roll back the update? You might stay away from the creators update for a while...

Some Google Fu showed this "GPU is missing" error has happened in previous large updates to Windows. The solution in this case is to uninstall the Nvidia graphics driver then reinstall. Appears to be working for now, but it has been only a few minutes... Cool

W10 has messed up NVidia drivers a few times. I've lost many tasks due to the auto update at least twice. You should be fine now that you installed the NVidia driver clean.
