In my crashed post, I had a reference that mentioned leaning on Dev Mgr to get out of this. It might be in one of the FAQs.

I'll check back to see if any of that helped, but other than what I've posted I don't think I can search any better than you search. This issue has been around for a LONG time.

Possible workaround

Hi,

Maybe try this just for the next boot to see if it gets around the _driver_ loading issue:

Press F8 when Windows is booting up until you get the Advanced Boot Options menu, then select “Disable Driver Signature Enforcement”.

Don't worry - it's not a permanent change.

Then try installing again.

Also I don't recommend this next approach but I tend to uninstall - reboot - then install the latest AMD graphics card drivers using:
ATIc Install Tool 1.16.0

I'd save that one until it's your last resort!

Well Bill,
Running out of memory cells here now, they are packed with a multitude of Catalyst gobbledegook !!

I have the new drivers installed, but not using the Catalyst Install Manager.
Fairly straightforward once I realised there was a path to achieve it.
First part of the Catalyst Installed unpacked the files to that AMD/Support folder.
Your hint to the Device Manager was the one, used the standard "update driver" button and aimed it at the AMD/Support folder, Windows found the .Inf files and loaded in the new drivers.

No Catalyst Control Center though, that is all still falling over whatever state I've set things up in. I've a grim feeling that whatever it is, it's going to take a system re-install to get rid of it.

Another adventure into Bill Gates's Wonderland LOL
I've posted something on the AMD Gamers forum, see if any of them can figure it out, but as it's not really game related I don't hold much hope, and I'm not even going to waste electrons bothering to ask AMD !!

Thanks for dabbling about in this with me Bill, I'll put it on the back burner for a day or so, but I'll niggle me, I can be very persistent LOL

Any way's as Zebedee said, it's time for bed.
Regards.
Mick.

Thanks also to you Callender,
Sadly the Driver Signature thing made no difference, routine went exactly the same, and failed exactly the same !!

Took the plunge with your 'Custer's Last Stand'
As it turns out it's not much more than a GUI bolted onto the front of AMD's own utility.
Virtually the same procedure, I was able to leave out some of the components, but as the CCC and drivers are united it really left me in same situation, it all downloaded, ran the Catalyst Install Manager, and failed just the same way.

So, chips 1 user 0

As you can read in the post to Slarty, the old fashioned way has at least given me updated drivers, and no issues for the future about keeping them up to date.
But the main issue is still unsolved, for now.

If you happen to have an epiphany and work it out, let me know LOL

Thanks for your efforts,
Mick

Great Mick,

CCC is fairly useless unless you want to OC.

I don't have enough brian cells to try and figure out why AMD/ATI is so difficult to install - so I always Punt.

Sleep well, my friend. It was a pleasure.

Small steps !!

A small update, after some sleep

Have worked around the 1st error message, "Unknown error creating or accessing folder C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies " Created the folder in advance, got in and did some digging about and made sure it was set for full control, did the same with the AMD/Support folder before trying an install of CCC.
No request from CCC about creating a folder so it recognised it was there this time.
Failed again though on the driver detection. But with a change of error message.
from :- AMD Catalyst Install Manager Failed to load detection driver.
to :- Detection Manager Failed to load the driver.

Will keep poking at this a while longer.

I had problems in the past installing CCC. Came across the below link to "totally" remove all entries of CCC and then do a clean reinstall. It's cumbersome and extensive; but it works!

how to properly uninstall ATI/AMD Software Drivers for Graphics Cards.

Good luck.

Thanks jr, have had a quick look at that, very interesting and worth a shot for sure.
Back to work here, so little evening time to go at this, but I'll be back with an update when I've studied and tried that guide.
