Every time I download a version that is compatible with the video card and system os (Windows 8.1 64 bit). It will download but when I start to run it it will get past the analyze stage then in the installation stage it will stop and say.

"Application instal; Installation failure"

If i click "view log" this comes up

I don't know what I can do to resolve this problem, I tried getting rid of my Intel integrated graphics but that didn't solve it. I don't know if i need to uninstall my chip set drivers as well when i uninstall my integrated graphics, so I might just be a dumb dumb, but I didn't try in fear of them being crucial to the system. I don't know a whole lot about computers other than some basic knowledge.

I've also tried a bunch of other versions of AMD Drivers but all of them came up with this message.

I just built this pc like 2-3 weeks ago. My specs are

Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor


Gigabyte GA-Z97-HD3 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard


Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory


MSI Radeon R9 280 3GB TWIN FROZR Video Card


Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

I just put up some of my importat stuff but i also have a 1 tb hard drive, a wifi adapter, etc.

If any one has any guides or walkthroughs or previous knowledge please tell me below or email me at

If I left out any important details that you need in order to be able to help me please tell me and I'll try and find what I forgot/didn't know.

Thank you for your time and Have a nice day.
