AMD Radeon driver update breaks opengl every damn time

I guess I'll never get tired of telling AMD how garbage their software is.

Seems like every time I update the graphics drivers, it kills OpenGL, and all the programs I use that depend on OpenGL stop running, or stop functioning properly. I do game development as a hobby and am supposed to be collaborating with a team right now, but I can't, because nothing works since I "improved" my drivers. And the last time I had to uninstall and reinstall these drivers, it created a month-long headache where my machine was barely usable, and I nearly had to wipe the hard drive for the fourth time and start again. I'm sick to death of having to deal with this, and having to scour the internet for an up-to-date solution.

Tells me I have 17.50.17.03 installed, try to install 18.4.1 and it tells me "components already installed".

AMD FX series, 6th generation. Radeon R8 M35ODX.

Affected programs: Minecraft (if memory serves), GZdoom, Slade, others will be posted as they come up.

EDIT:

Okay, I can't even reply to my own thread on this garbage forum because it thinks I'm not logged in, no matter how many times I log out and log back in. So here's what I've been trying to post: "I'm not even sure which option I choose from the dropdown. APU (Accelerated Processors)?"

Re: AMD Radeon driver update breaks opengl every damn time

Hard to reply to a question that has no specifics > Please read INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN POSTING A QUESTION.

Many Asus laptops...which is yours?

OpenGl on most laptops are IGP dependent and can not be forced to use the discrete graphics. In some laptops that can be adjusted through the bios...so please furnish the requested information.

Re: AMD Radeon driver update breaks opengl every damn time

I already answered your question. Please follow the steps above. You can not install any driver you want..(.ie 18.4.1) it's not supported.

Re: AMD Radeon driver update breaks opengl every damn time

Ran through all the steps for manually downloading the drivers and doing a clean install. Made sure to download the first option and not the minimal setup option. Everything went fine until the actual driver install following DDU rebooting my comp. Ran the installer, it gave me this and stopped:

Log showed several instances of "the package is already running. complete that installation first." I rebooted and checked the apps that were affected by the driver issues, and they're still affected.

I'm gonna try it again and cleare absolutely everything out of the AMD folder. The way it's worded gave the impression to delete only the driver folders and not absolutely everything. I'll post again if that did the trick.

EDIT: Nope.

Does this mean windows update is STILL automatically updating despite my disabling it?

Re: AMD Radeon driver update breaks opengl every damn time

Try this....disconnect from the internet

Delete the contents of the C:/AMD folder of all drivers

Go to Device Manager/display adapter/properties (rt click)/driver/update driver and use the 'have disk' method to install the new drivers. After (hopefully) installing the drivers, do not choose 'Restart'. Choose 'finish' and manually reboot your computer.

Re: AMD Radeon driver update breaks opengl every damn time

To be clear...you are trying to install the driver I pointed you to..the FX8800P ?

Re: AMD Radeon driver update breaks opengl every damn time

Yes, and I'm going with the first option, not the minimal installation.

Also sorry for delay in replying, my job is eating me alive...
