    AMD Catalyst Control Center does not show settings?


    I had to recently refresh Windows 8.1 so I had to go re-download AMD Catalyst Control Center. When I did this, I opened it up and there is only around two category settings which are "Performance" and "Power" and this is with "Advance settings" turned on. I use to have around 7 categories of settings to mess around with. If I recall, one was called "VGA Display Settings" and it let me position my screen, which I direly need.

    Where did all the other settings go?

    I encountered the same problem with Windows 8 when I made the "mistake" of installing AMD CCC using the standard approach -- by running the installer. What I found that worked was using Device Manager to reinstall the drivers and pointing it at the directory on C:\AMD\Support\<downloaded-file-name\Packages\Drivers\Display\W8_INF\

    When I installed that way, I had the full set of options previously available in Win7.

    What do you mean?
    OK, lets try again ...

    Installing AMD drivers using the standard approach of double-clicking the file and running it, I have found, does not work.

    Instead, you use Device Manager to update the driver. It wants an .inf file in order to do that. So, you use that to update the drive by pointing it at the .inf file in the directory path I mentioned.

    AMD CC depends heavily on .Net, different driver versions on different versions of .NET runtimes.
    Newer versions of drivers have "AMD Vision Engine Control Center" instead.
    @EraticFox
    Which video card, which drivers ?
    @CK
    What drivers are you using ? Did you clean out old drivers first ?

    I installed the new drivers before I deleted the old drivers, maybe that's the problem. But now I have just the latest drivers, I downloaded from amd site. I've deleted everything of amd and then reinstalled again, but I still can't in amd catalyst control center

    So click on finish and restart computer, it should have done the job. If anything was not up to par with .net, should be fixed.
