ATI x64 driver fail - Catalyst Install Manager has stopped working

This could possibly be the last ATI product that I'd purchase.  For almost as long as I could remember I can not get the ATI drivers to install.

  • Download from ATI website
  • Download beta from ATI website
  • Download from Dell website

I've always had to rely on Windows Update - but then it doesn't come with the Catalyst utilities.


Today I was forced to upgrade the drivers...

  • Running Boot to VHD on the machine with Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 installed
  • Default driver that Windows Update picked up is the Generic one
  • I need to be able to use an external monitor for presentation tomorrow - Yikes!

Fortunately, I found my solution here:

To cut a long story short - this worked for me:

bin64\ATISetup.EXE –install –output SCREEN
