Question asked by cross on May 31, 2016

When trying to open Radeon Additional Settings in Preferences, an error messages appears instead.


Radeon Additional Settings: Command Line interface has stopped working.


I'm on Windows 10, using an R9 380x. Crimson version is 16.5.3 previous versions did not work either.

Already tried the following:

1. Run the Windows self check tool to check scan and automatically repair any corrupt files found in Windows. There is a guide on how to do it here.  What you need to do is run an elevated command prompt (elevated means run it as administrator) and type SFC /SCANNOW. This will generate a statement indicating if errors were found the Operating system and if they were fixable.

2. Make sure you have installed Microsfot NetFramework and Visual C++ 2013. These should be installed already, but they can become damaged, need repairing or reinstalling.

3. Update Windows. Install all available critical, recommended and optional updates. Often Netframework and Visual C are included in the recommended or optional updates Windows provides. Windows should always be fully up to date before installing our drivers!

4. Use DDU to sweep the system of AMD drivers.

5. Install the latest Crimson drivers once the above is completed.
