AMD drivers giving error when installing

For context, I have just installed Windows on a new SSD and am trying to get the most recent graphics drivers installed for my FirePro W7100. I have installed these drivers before on my last hard drive with no issues, but now it's giving me this error: "Failed to create OpenGL context for format QSurfaceFormat.. This is most likely caused by not having the necessary graphics drivers installed. Install a driver providing OpenGL 2.0 or higher, or, if this is not possible, make sure the ANGLE Open GL ES 2.0 emulation libraries (libEGL.dll, libGLESv2.dll, and d3dcompiler_*.dll) are available in the application executable's directory or in a location listed in PATH." I haven't been able to find a solution. Any help on this? Thanks.

EDIT: I downloaded GLView to see my OpenGL version, and I do in fact have OpenGL version 4.5.13399.

Re: AMD drivers giving error when installing

A couple of other Users with Professional GPU cards were getting the same or similar type error:

I will page AMD Forum's Moderator for Professional GPU @fsadough if the above links doesn't have any fix for your situation.
