* Remove ATI install manger /CCC and install = FAIL (cat installs', no driver)

* Uninstall through device manager = Annoying FAIL (I no longer
have the option to delete the drivers which may be the issue. Windows is over-riding / blocking the new drivers)

Attachment 7701

* Manual install through Device Manager = FAIL (I point to the folder with the .inf and Windows says "driver is already up to date")

* Device manager uninstall + Driver Sweepr in Safe mode = FAIL

Overall, Cat 9.4 on Seven x64 = FAIL for me I'm not even going to bother with trying them in Vista
That is just wrong and messed up that you can't do anything with your drivers.

Are you gonna change your name too Driver Breaker now

Might as well change my name to driver breaker too, as I have the same problems.

Nice going ATI...nice one.

Instead of driver breaker, how about DRIVER DOMINATOR ?, I got Catalyst 9.4 installed! IN YOUR FACE ATI!

In the end I got it by doing an express install where catalyst installed, but the drivers didn't. Catalyst then informed me it was incompatible with the current drivers.

NEXT:

Device manager > Display adapters > update driver software.

THEN:

Browse my computer for driver software > Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer > Have disk

Then pointed it to:

C:\ATI\Support\9-4_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_wdm_enu\Driver\Packages\Drivers\Display\LH6A_INF.CH_78303.inf

It installed and one re-boot later it's done with crossfire re-enabled

The small step I missed was the "have disk". I was just pointing to the folder itself. My fault for following a bad direction on the amd forums

I'm glad you got it to work SE...I can't even get past the "Install" "Uninstall" window before it crashes. I can't get to the custom or express window.

Did you even test it once on a machine with Win7 ATI? geez.

You might be better off going straight for the safe mode /driver sweeper root and hope the issue goes away I wish I could help you here, but I never encountered the errors you did

At any rate maybe you should stick with cat 9.3 - 9.4 has re-introduced the 2nd card stuck at high clock speed and the inability to adjust 2nd card fan speed. It's even ignoring the .xml profile. So near, so fail

Look above.

The ATI External Events Utility Service is now called the AMD External Events Utility

lol, cross posting Good to see mate ...Although is that still the 9.3 CCC? (compare the Catalyst Control Center version number with mine)

I've sorted the fans out(you can now independently adjust each card in ATI overdrive)

Now I'm just stuck with the 2nd card running at full clock at desktop

I was right about these drivers making me work....
