Hey all. Brand new to hashcat. I just downloaded the latest version of cudaHashCat and tried running the example but am getting a strange error. I know CUDA is working just fine as all the samples provided by NVIDIA work flawlessly. Anyone have any suggestions?

ERROR: Shader Model 1.0 - 1.3 based GPU detected. Support for CUDA was dropped by NVidia.

Remove it from your system or use -d and select only supported cards.
Your card isnt supported by cuda any longer.

^ Notice how your GPU is no longer on that list.
Would rolling back to an older NVIDIA driver (and cudahashcat?) solve this problem or am I just SOL and in need of buying a newer card?
You would need to buy a new GPU to use cudaHashcat.
Nvidia Maxwell cards are very economical.
I was afraid of that. I suppose I've been long overdue for an upgrade regardless. Thanks all.
Gentlemen, why are you misinforming an OP?

Binary release 1.31 doesn't depend on "improved" CUDA lib and thus works on GT 240 and any other arrays which considered discontinued by rel 1.32.
We're not misinforming anyone. We no longer support 1.31, and the timebomb for 1.31 will go off soon anyway. Time to upgrade.
