I am trying to install the Catalyst 12.8 package for Windows 8 x64. I am working with both the RP and Enterprise x64 versions on a Win 7 x64 host through VMware 9 ( I have also tried the latest version of VirtualBox). My issue is that the installer manager works fine but never gives an option to install ths CCC or drivers or anything else except the SDK runtime files and the install manager. I can see the drivers in the directory after the install completes but the CCC does not install. My question is this. Am I having trouble with the install because of the VM environment or is there something else I am missing? If I had Windows 8 installed on my system without a VM would it install without issue? Hopefully that makes sense. I have successfully installed all necessary tools for VMware (or VirtualBox) to install drivers. I even installed the .net 1.1 framework (as AMD suggested). Am I really just :bang: for no reason and I should relax and go with the default drivers, or is there an advantage to installing specific drivers for evaluation purposes? If this has been answered already, than I apologize. Perhaps I didn't use the right keywords, but I haven't found an answer yet. On a side note, it seems the same thing is happening with Realtek sound drivers. I am beginning to suspect that both of these are related running under a VM.
