the titel says it all. The driver version for directx 11 changes back after i restart my pc when installing 12.4 ccc.
Let me explain:
I think everyone knows the BF3 bug when you get the message: BF3 does not work etc. Annoying bug. Occasionally you have it, sometimes not. Is most common in the SP and occasionally in the MP. Anyway ....
Now I wanted to play Deus EX through steam again. Go the game installed and booted it up ..I thought .. but it crashed. Got the same bug as with BF3. When I looked under systeminfo in Steam. It gives al list of the drivers i use, etc. I have the following screenshot of it. :
If you look under Naam stuurprogramma DirectX and Versie stuurprogramma DirectX( its in Dutch) you see the driver name and number.
Steam now has an AMD update function. Automatically download the latest amd driver. So I thought .. Let me see if an update is needed .. And to my surprise. Yes, there was an update available. I download and installed the update. I updated from 12.3 to 12.4
After installation, I again made a screenshots of the system information contained in Steam:
As you might be able to see.. The name and versionnumber of Direct X has been changed as you would expect.
After the update i rebooted my pc. After the reboot i restarted steam and started Deus EX up. And again the game crashed.
I revisited the systemtab in Steam and saw to my surprice that the name and version number changed back to the state before the update.
To make a long story short. Everytime i want to play a game like BF or Deus EX, or any game for that matter, i first need to reinstall the 12.4 ccc update, not restart my pc, otherwise the game crashes. Not that a big of a deal but its gets annoying after a couple of days.
I already removed the ccc software and reinstalled 12.4 on a clean system but with no result. Even changing back to 12.3 on a clean system wouldn't work.
Does anyone came across the same problem and has a solution?
