13.1 Not Working

I keep trying to install 13.1 and it doesn't work. Basically, what I am doing:

1. I boot into safe mode and open DriverSweeper. I remove / "clean" the AMD Display Driver.
2. I go into device manager and "uninstall" the graphics driver.
3. Reboot into regular mode.
4. Run the "13-1_vista_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql.exe" that I downloaded. That thing installs.
5. It opens the next installer thing and I click next. The bars move and whatnot, when the installation completes it says something along the lines of "Installation Complete. Warnings occurred. Check the log for more information."
6. When I right click the desktop there is no CCC, and when I search for the CCC exe and click it it says "Could not load file or assembly 'CLl.Implementation' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified." I assume this means CCC is not installed, but during the installation I selected it on the install list.

Here is my log thing:

Thanks. My specs are in the signature, but it is glitchy sometimes so here:

There's no need to run driver sweeper. This can actually cause more problems than it solves. If you need to remove AMD drivers, use the uninstall utility.

If it's me..

I just apply the new one on top of the old one... (only uninstall it when downgrading)

Alright, it is working now. I just used the AMD uninstaller.

Whenever I apply the new driver on top of the old one I get issues. I googled how to do a clean install and followed the instructions, and it told me to use Driver Sweeper so I did.

About two years ago there were definitely issues with upgrading AMD drivers. The problem was so bad that they actually owned up to it and admitted it publicly. They overhauled the whole process in late 2011 to early 2012 and it's now quite seamless. With Windows 8 and the WDDM 1.2 API it's not even necessary to restart your machine anymore.

Ahh, thanks for the information.

Also, holy s**t. I am getting like a 30% FPS improvement in Far Cry 3. I was doing 1600 x 900 on high and barely maintaining 60FPS before, and now I can do 1920 x 1080 on very high and still barely drop below 60. :D
