Windows 7: Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7

HDMI Driver Missing in 12-3_mobility_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc.exe

The HDMI driver(AtihdW76.sys) seems to be missing in the Win7 64bit version of Catalyst 12.3 Mobility. I keep getting an HDMI Driver Fail on install.

I did notice that in the extracted folder "C:\AMD\Support\12-3_mobility_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc\Packages\Drivers\WDM\HDMI\W764a" there is a file named AtihdW76.txt, instead of AtihdW76.sys that says:

FILE QUARANTINED

Microsoft Forefront Protection for Exchange Server removed a file since it was found to match a filter.
File name: "winmail.dat->Win7.rar->Win7\W764a\AtihdW76.sys"
Filter name: "FILE FILTER= AMD Delete: *"

Can anyone help?
Thanks

Can you add the AtihdW76.sys to the whitelist, or exclude list in Microsoft Forefront Protection for Exchange Server?

This is not a company PC where you don't have Admin privileges?

No, this is my home laptop. I will have a look at that link you posted because I'm not sure what Microsoft Forefront Protection for Exchange Server is. I believe the Exchange Server was used by AMD, I'm not using it on my end.

Forefront is the corporate version of Microsoft Security Essentials. My university uses it on all the computers in their labs. Are you downloading this through a school account or something like that?

No, I am using my LAN @ home, and I downloaded it from AMD.com. I have never had an issue installing Catalyst Mobility on my laptop until now.

Forefront Protection for Exchange Server is a security solution mostly used in enterprise. You did not install the programs on this laptop? If you wanted, you could uninstall this, and switch to something like Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE), or Avast! Antivirus. We are all curious how you come to have this paid commercial security program on your home laptop. A Guy

I installed Catalyst on my home laptop(yes, the one in my sig). I have Kaspersky AV and I don't have Forefront Protection for Exchange Server. I'm using Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium 64bit.

Can someone download and extract Catalyst Mobility 12.3 for Windows 7 64bit, and look at "C:\AMD\Support\12-3_mobility_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc\Packages\Drivers\WDM\HDMI\W764a". I want to know if there is a file named AtihdW76.txt, instead of AtihdW76.sys

Thank You

OK, I extracted and found AtihdW76.sys

Zipped it for you if that helps?

Thanks 'A Guy'. I looked around on the web and I see others having the same issue. I saw that a user on the guru3d forums actually copied and pasted my whole post from here in Sevenforums. I found that the new AtihdW76.sys version is now actually 7.12.0.7706 (A Guy's version is 7.12.0.7705). So if anyone needs it, I included all files in the extracted W764a folder.

I ended up downloading Catalyst 12.3 from here, instead of AMD and the HDMI files were included.
If I'm not allowed to post the link can an admin please edit. Thank you.

Glad you finally got it sorted (I am assuming you did?)
