    Or block specific drivers or other terms (Such as *AMD* ) via additional Power Shell scripts for managing WU although I only really had much luck with denying Windows Update from checking for drivers through a combination of device manager settings and the group policy ones.
    Once you're on the basic Microsoft Basic Display driver though the network connection has to go or Windows will pull down whatever it finds and force it which can be a problem when you're on a older GPU and it finds some older driver although I hope newer builds of the OS try to maintain minimum WDDM compatibility at least so you end up with something 2.6 / 2.7 compatible and not something from way back.

    Plus if the user is a preview or beta channel insider and what's on these driver wise or the dev one although the user would also end up on Windows 10 ∞ jumping into the latest compiled user available build with it's various drawbacks as it's a testing oriented environment primarily so there will be bugs and known issues of a more severe sort.


    Interesting to see a 20.10.x driver still as I thought AMD was on 20.20.x now, wonder if it's for something particular as I believe WSL2 and HGS both are on the 20.20.x branch so it's not Linux subsystem or GPU scheduler related.

    Interesting... Looks like they are moving to a UWP settings app? The file is really old though... 2019.

    EDIT: Looks like it doesn't have ccc2_install.exe inside the display driver folder either. It doesn't come with AMD Settings, Branding64, CNBranding, AUEP or any of that other crap either.

    Well it doesn't really matters as it seems. It is exactly the same with 20.7.X driver to me. It also have ris and all gaming features, whereas older drivers from windows update never had any new features. This app maintained through Microsoft store internally on a later phase, it's always OK.

    Radeon Settings Lite or Light or what it's called has been around for a long while though even the DCH driver in the main distribution opts for installing the standard CCC2_Install.exe Radeon Settings Software instead of linking into the UWP/Win10 Store for fetching the settings app.

    Lite is missing some of the stuff found in the main settings software though and I don't know how often AMD updates it and if there's multiple channels, Realtek for comparison uses a few so on older audio chipsets or how it's linked you might end up with a earlier version than the latest available when using the DCH drivers they distribute and seemingly are transitioning into though slowly. (While less frequent the standard driver model is still distributed and updated.)



    EDIT:

    EDIT: It's what the Windows Update driver model uses, pairs or registers the app as the driver is installed or how it's called by use of this instead of the standard settings software.
    DCH driver model and it's recommendations and some criteria plus additional upcoming changes after Windows 10 20H1 though those might still take a while to see implemented or as a addition to the existing distribution model.
