    Camera app issues with Catalyst Legacy drivers


    There's a huge issue with the Catalyst Legacy drivers AMD released for 2000 to 4000 series cards. After installing them, the Camera app displays the following problem after launch:

    "Sorry. The camera app cannot be used with this version of Windows"

    Reverting back to stock Windows 8 drivers solve the problem.

    Anyone has the same problem?
