Windows 7: ATI Catalyst Control Center Wont Appear...

ATI Catalyst Control Center Wont Appear...

Hi people.

I've just installed windows 7 RTM, 32-bit on my Asus, with an ATI Radeon HD 3470 graphics card.
The driver for it is installed and working I think, but I can't seem to get the Catalyst Control Center to work..

I've installed the ATI Catalyst™ 9.7 Suite for Windows 7 (32-bit) from here Drivers & Tools | GAME.AMD.COM Everything seems to go well with the installation, it even says, installation completed, but the catalyst center isn't anywhere to be found.
When I go to the folder ..programfiles/ati technologies the folder is just empty. In programs & features ATI install manager is installed.

Can anybody tell me what's wrong? I cant get the CCC to appear at all.. Thanks, Arthur

It is possible that you downloaded the Drivers Only package and not the Catalyst Suite.

Yeah, that's the first thing I checked. I definitely downloaded the ATI Catalyst 9.7 Suite, Which says that it includes the drivers and the CCC. Upon opening the pack I'm given the option to install 'ATI Catalyst Driver' and 'folding@home'-(not sure what that is)

Try installing again (folding@home is a microbiology experiment using excess bandwidth to form a network of home computers).

When your installation is finished check the install log to see what it says.

I've already tried installing and uninstalling multiple times to no avail... Although the installer package doesn't mention anything about the CCC... Not sure if its worth mentioning but when I did the upgrade to Win7, The windows installer told me "
  • These programs might not work properly after the upgrade. We recommend uninstalling these programs before upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, open Control Panel, and search for "uninstall a program". (Note: Programs marked as * can be safely reinstalled after the upgrade.)
    • ATI CATALYST Install Manager *
    • ATI Catalyst Control Center *"

Though at the time I didn't think it would matter to much if I didn't uninstall them.. Anyway, I've been looking round the net and alot of people seem to have a similar issue.

I installed the 9.7 control center but the driver it likes is the older vista one, works fine for me.

7Emeralds, you upgraded rather than clean install? Am wondering if that may be the source of your problem. I have installed the 9.7 drivers and control centre on 3 machines in the last few days, had no problems at all, but all were clean installs.

Yes you are possibly right.. I had the same thoughts myself. I did an upgrade rather than clean install as I found it a little difficult installing some of my things directly on windows 7. Considering how long its taking to sort the ATI stuff out it might be preferable to actually try a clean install. As a matter of fact I had previously tried doing this and found the ATI stuff to all be working fine and accounted for.. However if someone does have a different solution that would save me a day of reinstalling windows and all my programs etc..
