Dlls from Catalyst driver left behind after uninstallation

I hope the fix will be in the next driver release, as you can't easily downgrade to an earlier Catalyst driver/APP runtime,

when you use the Catalyst Installer/uninstaller you end up up with all the ATI & AMD files left in the System32 and SysWOW64 directories, I'd say that is a Bug,

and when you run an earlier Catalyst installer it won't over write the newer OpenCL runtime, i'd say that is also a Bug,

To downgrade from Catalyst 12.11 Beta11 back down to Catalyst 12.8 i had to delete 35 files from the System32 directory and 26 from the SysWOW64 directory, i think i got them all, Catalyst 12.8 now installed.

Re: Problems with Cat 12.10 and up and HD7xxx (and not only) GPUs

Hi claggy,

Can you please give the list of 35 files from System32 and 26 files from SysWOW64 that you had to delete manually.

Also Are you considering here, the files that come in APP SDK?

I haven't installed the APP SDK separately, so these files only came from the Catalyst driver install,

I've kept the files in separate folders on my desktop, they are:

System32, they all had a date of 02/12/2012, with the exception of OpenVideo64.dll, OVDecode64.dll, amdocl64.dll and OpenCL.dll which had a date of 15/11/2012:

amdave64.dll
amdocl64.dll
amdpcom64.dll

Re: Problems with Cat 12.10 and up and HD7xxx (and not only) GPUs

Hi claggy,

I did not checked out each and every file, but could see a similar set of files which is left after uninstalling 12.10 catalyst driver. I did a clean uninstall after that using the uninstall utility from here . Most of those dll were cleaned up, after uninstalling using this utility. After that I had installed 13.1 driver, again uninstalled it using the utility and then installed 12.10 driver (downgrade) without any issues.

I will let the appropriate team know about the files which were still present after uninstalling using the utility.

Thanks for reporting this issue.

Re: Problems with Cat 12.10 and up and HD7xxx (and not only) GPUs

Can you expand the Uninstall tool to Windows Vista and XP please, when i tried it on Vista, it said it was for Windows 7,

while i can sort my Vista machine out myself, i have a user on XP who needs it,

because OpenCL support has been deprecated on Cat 12.2 and later drivers for XP, this user has upgraded to a driver where OpenCL support is not available, and needs to back down to an earlier driver/APP runtime,

(I believe that looking for for OpenCL support was causing her Laptop to reboot, and installing the earlier driver didn't help)

Hi claggy,

I have forwarded your request to appropriate people. Thanks for your help.

For convenience, I have branched out your problem out of the old thread, as raistmer is still active there with his own problem.

Re: Problems with Cat 12.10 and up and HD7xxx (and not only) GPUs

Has there been any progress getting the Catalyst Uninstall Utility suitable for Windows XP, Vista and 8?

It's been almost a Month since version 1.2.1.0 was released.

Re: Problems with Cat 12.10 and up and HD7xxx (and not only) GPUs

Hi claggy,

I have asked the AMD Engg Team for the status.

Please be patient, as IMHO Windows XP might not be a priority. Although Windows8 should be.

Another two months have gone by, the User i was wanting the XP Uninstall Utility for, is the same Setiahome project scientist that questioned having AMD/ATI apps at his project:

http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/forum_thread.php?id=2021&postid=45545

Edit: He seems to have fixed his Wife's computer now and managed to revert it to an older driver where OpenCL support is still available.

Also i've seen no improvement in the uninstallers up to Cat 13.3 Beta 3 in removing files installed in System32 and sysWOW64 directories.
