When attempting to install Radeon Software Crimson Edition on windows 10 nothing happens

Question asked by sirblack on Jan 20, 2016

After updating my Windows 10 to build 10586 my games become very laggy, and unstable. In fact everything became slower. I then wanted to check if I can update my AMD Radeon HD 8570M Drivers and noticed the Crimson software.
Using Autodetectunitlity.exe I tried to download the latest update, weird enough the auto detected downloaded the Radeon Software Crimson Edition minimal setup for windows 32bit while my operating system is 64 bit (recognised by the AMD Auto Detect). So I tried to install it manually, I opted to install the full setup file so I downloaded whql-radeon-software-crimson-edition-16.1-64bit-win10-win8.1-win7-jan7.exe two things happen when I try to install it, either I received an error message in a blue screen saying "This app can't run on your PC, to find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher", then later when I try again, simply nothing happens when I execute the file. I also tried to download radeon-crimson-15.12-win10-64bit.exe with the same results.


I did not uninstall AMD Catalyst as I am worried if I did uninstall it and the Radeon software did not work I would be left without a functioning graphic card.

UPDATE: I just downloaded Radeon-Software-Crimson-Edition-15.11.1-Beta-64Bit-Win10-Win8.1-Win7-Nov30.exe, it seems to be the only one that is working, I was hoping to get at least teh 15.12 and not the beta version... any suggestions?
