    XP doesn't support as far as I know CrossfireX which is 4 GPU's. Proberly the reason why it wont enable using XP drivers.

    Also if you still have an issue enbaling CFX in Vista try booting with "disable driver signing" see if that helps you.

    That would be most appreciated as i think we should be able to get this to work. If it does work i know my next PC update will include a dedicated PhysX card

    Using Windows 7 x64 build 7100

    0.2 Installer logs this error:

    Driver seems installed but CCC doesn't show up.
    I can't see any "reference" to PhysX installation...

    Keep in mind... Maybe I'm missing something...

    UPDATE: my setup is working now. Please see my latest post in this thread:

    Did you unistall all ATi software before installing? (Programs and features ATi Catalyst Install Manager -> express uninstall)

    And you should still install the PhysX software (included with the package) but did your nVidia display adapter install without problems?

    About ATI drivers, my system was "vanilla" when I tried your package.

    About PhysX, sorry it's my fault. I thought they would be auto-installed during setup. Only later I saw the PhysX folder.

    Anyway, like I stated in my previous post, right now I'm using Windows 7 with Catalyst 9.4,nVidia WDDM 1.1 (prerelease) and latest PhysX driver.
    This setup seems working with demos but I didn't have the chance to test with real games. BTW, Mirror's Edge is experiencing the same slowdowns when PhysX is activated.

    Ok clear drivers out.
    Install physX drivers first followed by cat
    after restart then config your physX drivers then you should be good to go.
