    Driver Packaging Version = 15.20.1023-150428a-180730E-ATI
    2D Driver Version = 8.01.01.1487
    Direct3D Version = 9.14.10.01117

    It's working well with VSR and 7950's crossfire.

    Install steps:
    1. Clean previous drivers with DDU
    2. On Windows 8+, Admin command prompt: bcdedit /set onetimeadvancedoptions on; On Windows 7 and earlier, press F8 at boot to get the same menu (at the next step), before windows starts loading.
    3. Reboot and at the boot menu choose Disable driver signature enforcement, which is option 7) on Win8+
    4. Install driver through Device Manager (CCC is also automatically installed), see steps below, these must be followed precisely as specified.
    5. Done!

    VSR can be enabled under My Digital Flat Panels > Properties

    -- Detailed step 4: Installing the driver through Device Manager --
    1) Right-click Microsoft Basic Adapter -> Update Driver Software...
    2) Browse my computer for driver software
    3) Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
    4) Have Disk...
    5) Browse... and select the .INF on the correct folder
    6) Your GPU model should be correctly selected, press Next and proceed to the install. :)

    -- Bugs--
    This driver (1018.1 did it as well) tries to reinstall CCC on every windows boot, by running "C:\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install\LaunchWLApp.bat (a quick command prompt window shows up and quickly disappears). A simple fix for this is to rename or delete that file. You shouldn't delete the ccc2_install folder, as it is required to uninstall the "AMD Catalyst Control Center" entry under Programs and Features.

    -- Uninstall --
    This driver also adds an "AMD Catalyst Control Center" entry under Programs and Features. Right-click the bottom left corner of the screen (the start menu corner) -> Programs and Features -> Select AMD Catalyst Control Center -> Uninstall.
    Alternatively, run: "C:\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install\WULaunchApp.exe" -uninstall

    Feedback is welcomed! :)

    My tests from 14.502.1014.0 didn't show much improvement, pretty much within margin of error.

    Also VSR doesn't work (it didn't work with last either, but it does work with normal driver + VSR tool).

    Probably my old GPU that needs special attention;P

    Thanks for the mod:)!

    Yep, these drivers seem very similar to the 1018.1, however the application profiles are also dated April 28, which should include a proper GTA V profile. :)

    AMD CCC keeps installing by itself after I uninstall 1018.1.

    After you uninstall everything, be sure to also delete the C:\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install folder. I had the same problem when removing the 1018.1.

    Newer development.

    After doing what you said, and installing 1023 as usual, CCC installs itself again on every boot for some reason.

    Yep, it does. I've added some info about that on the first post.

    It seems the driver is dumb about that. If you check the WUCCCLog.log inside C:\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install, you'll see some smart stuff, like:
    Code:
    Starting the process..
     
    Main - Command line isC:\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install\WULaunchApp.exe  "-ReInstall"
     
    In ReInstall cmd line. CCC installed successfully, no need to re-install
     
    [B]Deleted CCCInstalledCompletely value from registry[/B]
     
    Log file created and initiating the pcrocess... 
    Starting the process..
     
    Main - Command line isC:\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install\WULaunchApp.exe  "-ReInstall"
     
    In ReInstall cmd line. [B]CheckCCCInstalledCompletely returned failure, need to re-install[/B]

    There statup issue is related to this file

    C:\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install\LaunchWLApp.bat


    start %SYSTEMDRIVE%\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install\WULaunchApp.exe "-ReInstall"

    Removing reinstall would that do anything?

    Or remove the whole file?

    I just took the bat off my startup.

    Its in this reg edit
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

    You can simply uncheck it to launch at boot in Autoruns>Logon tab if you don't want to delete.

    I used autoruns and disabled it. Is there no way to make this stop during the install? Can the CCC2 package be changed and repacked?

    Of course you can nuke it directly from registry.

    Autoruns gives you the option to disable delete or even to backup:

    Most Sysinternals tools are quite amazing. I played a race in Project Cars with the last update and these drivers. It felt the same, if not a bit worse actually. I gave it a run on the replay I used for benches and with everything on ultra it is 1fps lower on average, so well within the error range.
