Windows 7: Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7

Probably not. Don't think WU would push these compliment hotfixes (a, b, c, d) rather just the major 10.10 one. I'd get it from the standalone download from AMD, or the link there. Every time I've used WU for a AMD or Nvidia graphics card update in the past, it was either older, or forced me to system restore after installing it.

Yea thats why I raised an eyebrow at it. Its only 25mb which is below the normal size. If you click on the info links on the right, they are linked wrongly.

I think that they were the 10.10e's or d's. I had 10.10 installed and I also
had it show up on WU.
Hmmm...
Downloaded, this is what MS is supplying.

It's just my own personal taste, but I never let WU install any graphics card updates anymore. You may have another opinion about it, but screw ups through WU turned me off to WU for those updates specifically.

I'm with you. WU generally works quite well for me, but you can count on it being a step or two behind (at least) version-wise.

I think the size discrepancy people are seeing is due to it being:

A) A stripped-down WHQL version
and
B) No CCC

But this is a higher version than the 10.10 release. It must be some hot fixes to the driver.
It doesn't modify CCC - it is a driver update.
Let you know if there are any problems. Installed painlessly with no reboot required.

I installed the hotfix and it was pretty much screwing with my flash player i uninstalled and reinstalled the 10.10 from the site im only missing the MLAA

Im still able to play full graphics but the issue of them not having this fixed is kinda annoying especially when they have new product that they havn't properly fixed the drivers for

what can you do i hope they get it right soon i not to happy wasting 300.00 on products not working properly
