Hello everyone. I have a problem that is starting to get frustrating. For about two years now everytime I updet tha Catalyst Driver Package the Control Center is defunct afterwards.

The thing will not boot up with windows afterwards. Settings and Application Profiles stay functional, but I cannot start the control center itself to make any changes. When I double click the startmenu link or use the shortcut in the desktop's context menu I get the loading cursor for a few seconds but nothing happens. The process doesn't een for a splitsecond show up in the taskmanager, there is no error message, windows system events doesn't show anything either.

The Installation Log, though showing a "?" in the summary to notify me of a warning during installation, shows every Installation Step as succesful.

The only way to fix this is to manually remove the drivers and software in Windows Secure Mode with brute force using DriverSweeper and then doing a clean driver install with the new drivers.

My OS is Win 7 64bit.

I'm running 2 Radeon HD 5750s in Crossfire Mode.

Is there any known installation conflict with running background services (I've allways suspected seomthing with .NET to be messed up)?

Does anyone have any advice how to make the update process more failsafe on my end?

Is there any way to find out why exactly starting the CC fails without giving a error message or something?

Removing the driver manually prior to update everytime is unpleasent as it costs nearly 30 Minutes until I can convice all that garbage to be gone. Especially the stuff in the registry proves to be extremely resistant.

 

Any help or hint is much appreciated.

 

Best regards,

      Chris

These are all relevant Events in order of their appearance at windows startup.
Obviously there are files missing, namely:
"C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Fuel\Fuel.xml"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\MOM-InstallProxy\mom-installproxy.xml".
Does anyone have an idea why they would not be installed?
Can I find them in the decompressed install files to put them there manually?

Well, .NET is a serious mess and CCC is another serious mess. Neither should exist in the first place. I can't tell you a solution but can give advice.

1. Calculate how much time you spent on this procedure in the last 2 years. Add the time you will have to spend on it util the end of your computers's/card's life.

2. Calculate how much time it takes to reinstall the OS.

Chose the smaller one.

I have done clean OS installs at least two times in those two years. It never helped solving this particular problem.

 

On another note: .NET sure is a pain in the ass on the consumer end, it should definetly be better integrated with windows to be transparanet and safe consumers the hassle to go through manuaaly installing and updating it. On the developer side the .NET framework is a valuable toolset if used correctly.

 

As for the CCC: When it is running it is running quite fine.
