When Installing catalyst I get the message Application Install: install package failure. It happens when it gets to the ATI catalyst Install Manager part of the install. Any ideas on how to get this to work. I have tried using ever version available for Vista 64 bit and I get the same problem with every try.

Try manually installing the driver.

Go into device manager, select the video adapter and browse where you put the drivers.

How do you manually install. I am looking at the device manage right now.

It says I have a problem with standard VGA adapter now when I did it. Also device couldn't start (code 10)

Ok first run driver sweeper or something just to make sure its completely clean.

You can get it here:

after that restart.

Then go into device manager, select display adapters.
Right click on the adapter (should be standard VGA)> properties>driver>update driver>browse for software

Also I would use the current 9.2 version direct from ati

Browse where for software? The internet for my C files?

I got my card working but not catalyst. Is that a problem?

Download the latest version from and install that. You should run driver sweeper first otherwise you may run into issues.

Catalyst is not as big a deal as the actual driver I would not think. Go to device manager, then right click on the card, and update driver. Once you get in there, tell it you have a disk, then navigate to where you downloaded the drivers too, and pick the .inf file, and tell it to open, it should allow you to at least use your card.
