There is no file (below in the error) that exists in
the /usr/share/nvidia directory.

Additional info:

Steps to reproduce: (console command)

ERROR: nvidia-settings could not find the registry key file. This file should have been installed along with this
driver at either /usr/share/nvidia/nvidia-application-profiles-334.21-key-documentation or

work, but values cannot be preopulated or validated, and will not be listed in the help text. Please see the

This is related to task #38604. The default registry key file got added, but I forgot to mention the key documentation file.
