Switchable graphics?

Hi,

 

Windows 10 is just around the corner, so I figured I'd give the technical preview a whirl.  Everything is loosely OK, however I'm having problems with the AMD switchable graphics on my laptop.  There are a few applications which are marked as "To ensure compatibility, this application is locked".  It wouldn't bother me too much, apart from one of them is premier CC 2015.  It fails to start with a "has stopped working" error just after the splash screen.  I have to go into C:\windows\system32\amdocl64.dll and rename it to something else, and then the app will start.

 

Who decides what is marked "To ensure compatibility, this application is locked"?  It's part of the CCC UI, so is it AMD?  When will some of these apps be fixed?  I tested the 15.5 beta driver and the issue remains.

 

Cheers

Jim
