Windows 7: ATI Catalyst Control Centre not installing with 7

Hey - Glad you are sorted!

I just downloaded 10.2 Catalyst for my AGP 4670 card and they came with 3 XTRA items of software this month!
10.2's managed to identify my card correctly and install catalyst correctly. System seems miles quicker too, Scrolling etc.

Things to be told to those Canadian Geeks at AMD/ATi.

1. On ATi feckin download main page they should state clearly laptop drivers are special and people should download from laptop manufacturer website! Perhaps red flashing text?

2. We should be told if we download certain Catalyst driver improvements whether we need to download updated M/soft stuff such as Visual C++ in order to make the stuff work properly.

It is incredible that Ati do not inform people to update Visual C++ on the main driver page!

Perhaps they do this to drive people around the bend? If not they are a sloppy bunch of Geeky fekkers with NO checks put in place to see if the correct information is disseminated to their customers when they release new drivers!
(if true what Rik55 posted about Visual C++ & the different updates needed for 9.11/10.1 improvements to work properly)

Visual C is included in the installer as it is with game installers. As always you should choose a custom install when installing the drivers.

AHHH - but you don't download AGP "Hotfixes" do ya?

I can assure you, whoever uploads them at ATi includes anything they like with them! They vary monthly!

I've checked this coz you get far more Xtra software with the ordinary 4600 driver downloads as opposed to 4600series AGP 'Hotfix' downloads! Seems like they take a bit more 'care' over releasing the mainstream drivers!

What 'extra' software are you referring to?

Stuff like a 230mb dowload of MS Visual 3.5 which Rik55 mentions updates the other versions.
