Re: AMD Radeon Software not launching

Made an account just to say thanks. Ive tried reinstalling the amd auto driver installer like 5 times and have the latest windows update and it wasnt working. I tried this and it worked without me needing to restart. Might be because I got a new ssd to why it stopped? Thanks anyway man.

"If anyone wants a quick fix without reinstalling the drivers, I found one! Go into your AppData/Local/AMD/CN and delete your gmdb.blb, then restart the program or relog/restart your PC to have your Radeon Settings launching again"

 

This method did not work for me.

Re: AMD Radeon Software not launching

The only way I was able to get this working again was to use the AMD cleaning utility to remove all old files, then reinstall using an older WHQL driver package (I used 19.04 or something like that). The newest installer from the AMD website did not work, it said it could not determine this was an AMD system (????). I was able to get the latest drivers from within the older installer. I said there was an error, but the AMD software now works.

Re: AMD Radeon Software not launching

I think this worked for me thanks: 

"If anyone wants a quick fix without reinstalling the drivers, I found one! Go into your AppData/Local/AMD/CN and delete your gmdb.blb, then restart the program or relog/restart your PC to have your Radeon Settings launching again"

 

( I Windows 10 I use a Standard account as the main account, So the Admin account is a different one. Similar to Linux approach where you use a non Admin account.

I think this could be one of the reasons I ended up with this issue ).
