I am using a Lenovo IdeaPad Y560P, with an AMD Radeon HD 6570M on Windows 7 64-bit.
I have updated my drivers regularly since I purchased the laptop in 2011 using the AMD Driver Auto-detect tool, and have been using Folding@Home since October of this year. I recently wished to update to the latest drivers, and thus used this tool, and later just downloaded 13.9 directly from the AMD site. However, each time I run the installer I am met with the "Installation Failed: Install Package Failure!". The log in Event Viewer says;
"Product: AMD Catalyst Install Manager -- Error 1723.There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action SetInstallDir, entry: SetInstallDir, library: C:\Windows\Installer\MSI8E25.tmp"
I attempted installing the 13.11 Beta (same issue), and achieved 'success' with 13.4- however, it completes the installation in mere seconds and seems to change little (Device Manager still shows the driver as being the Windows Update default- version 8.something from 2010). I have researched a multitude of possible solutions and tried them all- CCleaner, Driver Sweeper (or whatever it is now called) Display Driver Uninstaller, I have tinkered with the Windows Update settings so that it does not default to the old driver, re-installed the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributables, etc. No success from any of these solutions. Thus, I fell back on my OEM's driver, which manages to successful install CCC (CCC did not appear when 13.4 'succeeded'). However, Diablo III states that my driver is out-of-date upon launch, and I have noticed performance drops in several games (LoL, D3, and others) and F@H will not run properly, as "opencl.dll" is missing.
Cheers in advance,
