    Catalyst drivers won't install - Windows won't let it


    After I installed Windows 8 Pro from scratch it automatically installed my Radeon HD6900, everything worked fine, but Photoshop has some problems in the advanced GPU-drawing-mode. So I wanted to see if an original Catalyst driver would work better, besides I wanted to have access to the Catalyst Control Center.

    I deinstalled the driver Windows automatically installed and started the Catalyst installer. It told me, everything went fine and the screen flickered as it always does, when you install the graphic card driver.
    But listed in the device manager was still the one windows installed at the beginning. And the CCC won't start, telling me:

    "Catalyst Control Center cannot be started. There are currently no settings that can be configured using Catalyst Control Center."

    When I deinstall the driver again and reboot I have the wrong resolution (that's how it should be without a graphic card driver installed), but only for a few seconds. Then Windows kicks in and installs its Radeon-driver again.

    Is there any way to install a Catalyst instead of the one Windows keeps on choosing for me?

    Thanks for the help!

    Run it and it will do all you want. No need to uninstall any drivers
    So long as you have the latest drivers.

    Thanks for the reply. I have an Intel i5 2500K @3,3GHz though. What now?

    The app auto detects hardware since you have Radeon HD6900 it should still work
