Audio Drivers missing in Adrenalin 18.11.2 install - anyone else seen this?

Jump to solution

Clean install post DDU in safe mode of Adrenalin 18.11.2. using downloaded AMD Installer. No PC Audio from display:
I see this:

Just thought I would mention it...
Might have forgotten to package the HDMI Audio drivers in the installer.
Similar thing used to happen from time to time in earlier versions of Crimson / Crimson ReLive... where parts of the driver install were missing - the "Catalyst Control" features for example.

Latest update - Ther Audio Drivers seem to be back in AMD Adrenalin 2019 version 18.12.2.

I ran DDU in windows 10 64bit to remove previous drivers in safe mode and disconnected from the Internet.
I then rebooted in normal mode, still disconnected from the Internet, and ran the full 18.12.2 installer.
The Audio drivers were there.
I mark this as fixed in 18.12.2 full installer for now.
Thanks.

What you can do custom uninstall audio driver then reinstall it!! I don't use AMD Audio driver.

Thanks everyone for response.

I downloaded the following from AMD Drivers Website: win10-64bit-radeon-software-adrenalin-edition-18.11.2-nov19.exe

I disconnected from the internet.
I booted into safe mode.

I ran DDU, in GPU setting, removing AMD drivers, Ran remove Nvidia Drivers as well (No chance anything would be there anyhow).
Then I ran DDU in 'Audio' setting to remove audio drivers - there were two options, RealTek and Soundblaster. I ran them both.
I then reran DDIU in GPU Setting to remove AMD Video Drivers twice.
I rebooted Windows 10 into 'normal' mode, still disconnected from the internet.
I then installed the following file downloaded from AMD Drivers Website: win10-64bit-radeon-software-adrenalin-edition-18.11.2-nov19.exe


Still no Audio Drivers.

The Audio drivers were there previously.
I had done earlier installs of 10.10.1/2 followed by incremental 18.11.1/2 updates.
That's why I think they are missing in the stand alone win10-64bit-radeon-software-adrenalin-edition-18.11.2-nov19.exe.
Also if I use Custom Install options, I see no mention of AMD Audio Driver in the installer.

Thanks again.

The Audio Drivers aren't part of the GPU Package but the Chipset Package., which the Installer won't Automatically include / update for you, despite the fact that 18 months ago they began to package them through the Catalyst Next Installer.

Heck it has a weird issue where when you tried to install the Chipset Drivers, it'll keep recommending the latest Graphics Package.

Windows 10 (Release Path) has definitely been having some, let's say "quirks" with the Realtek Audio on AMD Systems... which isn't present on the (Next Release Path) but eh., that doesn't mean there isn't a New Issue that occurred last night; as the Windows 10 Update System pushed out a new AMD Graphics Driver [25.20.14016.1] which shows up as Version 17.12 in the Control Centre., except [25.20.14011.5005] is Version 18.11.2 … this has resulted in corrupting the Control Centre (disabling half of the Functionality, such-as Display, ReLive, Eyefinity, etc.) as well as the Video Acceleration Codec, which is "Fun" as this in turn disables the Hardware Display Scaling on Videos.

I mean it's weird as there isn't a new Beta Driver at the moment., 18.11.2 is still the most current Optional... so I've no idea WTF Driver Microsoft just pushed out was. Like I assume it's their new WHQL Base AMD Graphics Driver, but it's weird that it has a more up-to-date Version Number (in Device Manager) while much older in Adrenalin.

Unless it's supposed to be 18.12.0., which it could be but if that's the case I'd like to have my full Control Centre feature back

Ah well, fun-fun happy times as always.

Guess that windows catalogue driver would be related to,

Hi thanks for testing it out and I am really glad you did it "Just for fun". Did you run DDU first though to remove any previous AMD Driver?
Not sure how you had all audio driver pre-ticked to be honest, because it isn't in the driver.
I don't even have to look to see who liked your response.

Anyhow, "Just for fun", I recorded me running DDU in safe mode, installing the AMD Driver, and showing that there are no audio drivers in there.
Note in the recording I ran audio uninstall of Realtek and Soundblaster as well, but that step is not needed to show the problem.
I will add the link to this post in a minute, so maybe someone can fix or work on the issue, because it is really annoting to install an AMD driver and end up with no audio.

Thank you.
