Try to unpack attached ZIP file to desktop where you will get "AMD Settings.lnk" and run it.

It should run installed EXE in it's original location.

If this doesn't work, only solution left is to completely uninstall AMD software with Display Driver Uninstaller in safe mode or with AMD Cleanup Utility.

After that do complete install from beginning without internet connection.

Oh my. I finally got it. I made up some more free space on my C partition and now it worked. The bar graph was red before but still had 1 GB free space.

Thanks for your amazing help. Im feel kinda sorry for all your efforts now

Hi, can I install a VEGA 64 on my win 8 pro 64 bit? I also have similar problems and it seems unfair to treat customers who have bought and loved AMD video cards for a lifetime.

I have installed an RX Vega 64 Liquid on Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit using Adrenalin 19.12.1 Windows 7 drivers.
Not tried with Adrenalin 2020.
I do not consider Adrenalin 2020 GUI/UI worth it.
You might want to try install Adrenalin 19.12.1 GUI/UI and then use Windows device manager to update from extracted Adrenalin 2020 20.4.2 Windows 7 files under C:\AMD\

You can install Adrenalin 2020 using method described above, but I recommend version 20.2.2 (recommended) or 20.4.2 which is also working.

If you have any previously installed AMD software version, after step 3 and before step 4 do this:

Go to folder "AMD\Win7-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2020-Edition-20.4.2-Apr23\Bin64" and run "AMDCleanupUtility.exe" to completely remove previous software.

It will ask to restart in "Safe Mode", and all 3 times confirm with "Yes".

After restart to "normal" mode proceed with step 4.

This way I got RX-550 (which is declared for Windows 7 and 10 only) working perfectly on Windows 8.1 with Adrenalin 2020 version 20.4.2

Does this method also work for the new drivers 20.2.2 / 20.4.2 (Win7 Edition?) on Win 8.1?

Slight problem, In my program files I couldn't find the "ccc2_install". Is it possible that it had gotten deleted from Windows Update?

In your questions you have to be more specific and exact.

"ccc2_install.exe" is not in "Program Files", but in sub-folder:

Program Files\AMD\CCC2\Install\

If it is not, then you can find it in sub-folder where you extracted driver installation, for example (for latest available version for Windows 7):

...\AMD\Win7-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2020-Edition-20.4.2-May25\Packages\Drivers\Display\W76A_INF\B355199\
