I have a remote system in which I've updated the Nvidia graphics driver, but now RDPDD.dll, which I'm guessing stands for RDP Display Driver, will not load (found this out via Event Viewer). I can use Sysinternal's Psexec to execute commands though.

I'm sure something has gone very wrong and the user of this system (a CAD engineer) won't be able to use his system normally. I've tried two remote reboots and that has not resolved the issue.

So I would like to use the "Roll Back" option for the Nvidia driver in the device manager. Is there a command-line way of doing this?

You can use the DevCon application to perform driver update operations from the command line.

Great idea. Did some googling and some stuff here seems interesting... – LawrenceC Jan 17 '11 at 4:34
