    I know I've created a topic complaining about Video tab missing from CCC since I upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, but I guess I'd better creating a new one because the subject is slightly different. I did some investigation and here is the result.

    I opened Core-Static.xml in C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD\ATI.ACE\Core-Static\ folder, searched the word "video", finding two entries:

    <aspect name="RT_MMVideo" company="ATI.ACE" filter="MMVideo">
    <location file="CLI.Aspect.MMVideo.Graphics.Runtime" ext="dll"></location>
    <location file="CLI.Aspect.MMVideo.Graphics.shared" ext="dll" helper="true"></location>

    and

    <aspect name="DB_MMVideo" company="ATI.ACE" filter="MMVideo">
    <location file="CLI.Aspect.MMVideo.Graphics.Dashboard" ext="dll"></location>
    <location file="CLI.Aspect.MMVideo.Graphics.shared" ext="dll" helper="true"></location>

    Then I looked for "CLI.Aspect.MMVideo.Graphics.Runtime.dll", CLI.Aspect.MMVideo.Graphics.Dashboard.dll" and CLI.Aspect.MMVideo.Graphics.shared.dll" in the same folder, but did not find any of these libraries. I opened Install.xml, still in AMD\ATI.ACE\Core-Static\, and searched "video", and I found these two lines:

    <Include file="CLI.Aspect.MMVideo.Graphics.Dashboard" extension="DLL" nGen="True" GAC="False" />
    <Include file="CLI.Aspect.MMVideo.Graphics.Shared" extension="DLL" nGen="True" GAC="False" />

    So do these missings dlls explaing the missing Video tab in CCC? Do you think there is a way to manually place these libraries in this folder and modify some registry keys? Thanks in advance.

    Yes, these dlls do explain the missing video tab. I renamed mine and the video tab was gone. Renamed them back, and its back again.
    Just try placing them in the folder and see if it works.

    Thanks for the reply. I could get these dlls from the own Catalyst package, but I don't know where they are located, probably in a container file, because I didn't find any isolated Catalyst Control Center dlls.

    Do you have a guess in which folder or archive I can find these files, or if it's possible to extract them?

    This files located in Packages\Apps\CCC2\Core-Static-Net4\ccc-core-static.msi MSI package.
    You can easly extract it using standard msiexec command, like this:
    where TARGETDIR=E:\t is path to any folder you like

    And put nessesary DLL's in C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD\ATI.ACE\Core-Static

    Good luck!
