Does AMD plan to produce a Catalyst package that does not fail on Windows 8.1?  I have an AMD 4670 card and the latest Windows 8 package fails to load the software on Windows 8.1.

A while back AMD announced that the Legacy card support was slowing down. It also indicated that with the release of Windows 8.1 that legacy cards would not be supported. The last CCC packages that really work are 13.1 and the 13.4 Beta.
