you need to install .net framework 2 for catalyst to work.

I also run Windows Server 2008 r2 x64 and I have Catalyst Control Center working just fine. Make sure that you have the .net frame works and you have Catalyst 12.6 or 12.7. I don't know why you wouldn't at least get an error message.

ok new update. So i uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and upon opening catalyst it would say that I needed to update my drivers or whatever... ( i have the latest 12.6)
So then I went into device manager uninstalled both cards ( without deleting drivers) then rescanned then opened up catalyst. The Catalyst window opened!!! but show limited options then crashes with. " Catalyst Control Center: Host Application has stopped Working.

Stopped working

Maybe you have parts of a previous driver still in your system. You might also have a problem with the enabld modules of Server 20087 r2.

Remember, this is a server OS, not a desktop OS, so you might need to check your enabled features and make sure that you're not missing anything necessary. I wouldn't expect an error message to tell you about this because those programs and such aren't designed with server OSs in mind. CCC works just fine for me, but I'm using old integrated graphics (a Radeon 1270M to be more specific) on my machine, not newer cards in CF, so I don't know for sure what would cause your problems.
