Elden Ring seems to be the talk of the town these days, and everyone is deeply engaged in obtaining the best gear and defeating all the powerful bosses. But for some users, Elden Ring is missing from GeForce Experience.

Other issues, too, seem to plague the title, for instance, users being unable to use controllers on Elden Ring. But for now, let’s focus on the issue dealing with Elden Ring and GeForce Experience and how to add the latter to the former.

Why is GeForce Experience not finding Elden Ring?

Here are a few reasons GeForce Experience is not finding Elden Ring:

  • Compatibility issues: If you’re wondering why you can’t find Elden Ring in the list of games displayed by your GeForce app, it’s not a glitch. It’s simply because Elden Ring is not yet on Nvidia’s supported list.
  • Missing permissions: In many cases, missing administrative privileges can lead to this problem.
  • Path not accessible: If the specified path for Elden Ring is not accessible due to limited permissions, GeForce Experience will have trouble recognizing or finding it.
  • Misconfigured firewall settings: Another reason many users encountered the error was when the firewall blocked either GeForce Experience or Elden Ring.
