Your current video card driver does not support this NVENC version please update your drivers.

I was getting ready to start my reboot of settling into a new Windows system
yesterday on a laptop I reset to Windows 10 factory default and decided to go
with OBS for screen capture, which I was able to get from the Microsoft store.
But upon trying to start a capture, I was immediately hit with the message:
Your current video card driver does not support this NVENC version, please
update your drivers.
Now whenever I get such a precise error message, I’m going to shoot a video to
show how to fix it:
Unfortunately, I had to install Camtasia Studio again for screen capture
because of a chicken-and-egg problem without being able to use the Open
Broadcast Software until this driver update was complete. Happily, I was able
to download the video driver from the NVidia driver from their site. The
hardest part was figuring out which driver I needed for my laptop, which turned
out to be the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, which I could tell from going to Windows
Device Manager and expanding Display adapters.
