    I guess it's just defaulting to the first Catalyst Next version if the string is missing from the INF file. :)

    HKR,,RadeonSoftwareEdition,,"Adrenalin"
    HKR,,RadeonSoftwareVersion,,"18.11.2"

    Those two found under [ati2mtag_SoftwareDeviceSettings]

    So Adrenalin 18.11.2 is what gets reported and if these are blank there's probably some default or fallback value.

    how do you stop windows from installing drivers ? some components like High Definition Audio Bus keeps reinstalling and windows wants to restart. (I only have this problem with AMD drivers on W10 - tried 18.12.2 and 18.12.3)

    For Redstone 4 and Redstone 5 now you can only limit it but as long as some driver is installed it should stop Windows Update from interfering, from a clean install though pull the network cable or similar or it will immediately pull whatever from the update server and that's not desirable in the least particularly for how old some things can be.

    First there's the system settings and the device manager where you can toggle a option to skip driver updates. Then there's gpedit.msc for Windows 10 Pro and higher and enabling this policy.

    Those two together should stop it, as long as some driver is installed since it will use Windows Update if the baseline Microsoft driver is detected regardless of setting.
