    I am wondering if there is a way where I can use the new and most recent DLLs for DX11 drivers onto the installation folder that uncompresses in C:\AMD

    to compare if there is an advantage coming from the libraries itself,and if there isnt an advantage what can I do to usse the improved performance from 17.7.2 and newer drivers on DX11 without installing 17.7.2, what files should I copy on the driver installer folder?

    Why not to just put aticfx64.dll & atidxx64.dll into system32 and aticfx32.dll & atidxx32.dll into SysWOW64 after installing that older driver?
    If something refuses to overwrite - go to safe mode. But I wonder why to do it when you can put them in the same folder with each application's executable file and thus inject them into that specific applications rather than in the whole installation package?

    i shoudl try to add the DLLs in safe mode because the OS ask for special permisions to edit the DLLs on system

    just because I wanted to do a driver installation that didnt require that hassle
