Re: AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta's

Although I'm still using a HD 6950, I went ahead and installed this set. Just did complete getting things up and running.

And, I had to go through "the whole shebang" of renaming the two .dll files (I've mentioned previously) in order to delete them from my system before I could get CCC up and running again after the install.

Now....on to the games!!!

Re: AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta's

Also there is now the 12.11 Beta 8 on the AMD website. I run a 6950 and just install over the previous beta and have not had any issue. Windows 8 Pro for my OS

The Beta 8 Drivers have been shown to not be using the CAP/Profiles. AMD is working on this issue. So, I'm not recommending that these be used until the issue is resolved.

I'm also still having problems when trying to install over the top of previous drivers in that CCC won't open. I have to completely uninstall and then delete all traces of the drivers and files before installing clean.

Presently, with these Beta 8, my Presets don't work due to the aforementioned problem.

^^ So, you're still having the DLL file issue even in Win8?

Something is definitely wrong somewhere.

Re: AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta's

I've had the "CCC won't open" issue the last FEW times I've updated Cat drivers, especially in Vista and Win7.

An easy trick I use to fix it is to just re-install the driver over top of itself using the "custom install" option, but installing everything anyway.

So far, that has worked for me every time.

Who said anything about Windows 8? Not I....only Chaos mentioned he was using it.

This for me is AMD 12.11 Beta 8 drivers installed on Windows 7 x64.

Re: AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta's

Just to update this , about a week ago I gave these drivers another go and within a minute of installing I had a Lockup so it appears that something about them is not working for me but yesterday I tried the AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta 11 and 12.11 CAP2 and they appear to be working just fine with near on 30 hours now and no issues.

The latest Beta #11 also has improvements for Far Cry 3 in case anybody plays that. I tried the game but couldn't get its mouse controls to act well, so there was not much testing.
