I just tried installing Catalyst 7.12 without uninstalling 7.10 as I thought that it would work. After that, CCC will not open at all. I tried uninstalling every trace of ATI and even did a system restore but after the system restore, every time i open CCC it gives me the "has encountered a problem and needs to close" error. Please I need some help as Flight Simulator 9 has no AA and AF at all without CCC open.

Hi, that is what I did. Even 8.1 won't fix it.

its just because you still have a traces of previous version
try to use driver cleaner
delete any related catalyst files in C:\WINDOWS\assembly
make sure you have .net v2

Well you are using the second worst software on the planet, second only to nTune.

That used to happen to me with my old system. You have to delete all the traces of catalyst and even then sometimes it still didn't work.

I don't need to unistall CCC anymore to update it. I just install the latest one with the old version running.

hi guy. hey, i bombed hard for days w/ ccc, even 8.1 bombed 4 me. finally, i hassled techies enuf 2 get instructions. basically, u gotta go into the registry, and find anything that refers 2 ati, and delete it, so ati is not known in your registry (usu u find stuff from prev installs.) then, u gotta go and lookup .inf files, they would be ones w/ a second part 2 match the .inf itself, and delete any of them that refer 2 ati. 4 me, there were about 20 .inf files 2 consider, i only nuked 3. sorry, but if this doesn't work, run this by ati support, and they'll tell u about the same thing, but super direct/accurate(er) than me. ps/ i am gonna bomb & drop ati, like a hot potatoe, as soon as displayport comes around. now i've oc'd my rig, and ccc loses altogether its host processor, so i can even look at my gpu temp (that's all i use ccc 4 anyway. adios, cooky.
