When trying to download the latest drivers for my GPU, the program "amddriverdownloader.exe" (downloaded from official website) gives the following error:

Could not connect to server: Could not parse error

Could I get some support on this please? I allready checked my firewall settings and even turned off the firewall completely, but the error keeps coming when I press "Download Now"

Thank you and kind regards,

Download the real thing instead of the autodetect tool.

If you have a fairly recent desktop card (5k and above), go here.

If you have an old card (or even for new ones), go here. Select the OS and card type, not the autodetect option.

For laptop/mobility drivers visit the website of the manufacturer (OEM) that made the laptop. Get the customized drivers from them.
