Left my PC on last night and when I got up today there is a message from "AMD Radeon Software Installer". The message is "Error 186 - Radeon Software install cannot proceed as some files have been detected as missing."
Now, I understand the message, this KB article is pretty straight forward: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/gpu-kb186
The problem is I didn't try to do an update before I went to bed and I have "Download Drivers & Software" turned off in the Radeon settings. So, it should check for updates but not download them. So why have I got this message appearing? What the heck was it trying to install, and why did it even *try* to install something in the first place?
Oh, and I'm already on 21.6.1 drivers.
Ok, so the exact same thing just happened again. Went to bed last night and this morning there is a Radeon Software Installer "Error 186 - AMD installer cannot continue due to missing or corrupted manifest files".
At least this time there IS an update available 21.6.1 -- 21.6.2. That said, I've looked at what 21.6.2 does and decided it's not worth getting.
I have to stress that I DON'T want the drivers to autoupdate. I don't mind being notified there are new drivers but I want a chance to see what they fix (and break) before installing them.
Why is it trying to do an install when I have autoupdate turned off?
How do I stop it trying to do autoupdates?
edit: Oh, and it appears to have now broken my existing install as I can no longer start the Radeon software to change settings or monitor performance. Just great...
