those aren't CUDA drivers. CUDA drivers are in the 4.2.x range right now. those are display drivers. you may actually need to go back into the 290 range. for quadro its 270 range. before you think those are "stale" drivers, please know that are given bug fixes / updates. so increments in the .xyz part counts. while they may lack certain major feature additions / updates, they provide a stable fixed point in space for developers to work with. it tends to be games generally using the new and improved stuff while the older drivers are more stable controlled environments. so you may in fact just need to install some what lower version graphics drivers.

you should also look at the adobe specs for what drivers are certified, and run with them because they will work. as you have found, newer make not work
