Hello all, 

Find myself with a puzzling error.

This is happening on any of the Catalyst packages I try to install.

The AMD/Support folders are created, Catalyst Install Manager starts.

At the point it asks if the "ATI Technologies" folder should be created, when I say YES, I get a dialogue box stating this :-

"Unknown error creating or accessing folder C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies !
Ensure that you have rights to create or access this folder or select a different destination to install to."

If I bypass this either by creating the "ATI Technologies" folder myself, or another named folder, the Install Manager then puts up a dialogue box with this :-

"AMD Catalyst Install Manager Failed to load detection driver"

Rather puzzled here.

Any ideas ?
