      AMD Settings: Radeon Software Version: 16.7.3; Radeon Settings Version: 2016.0708.1511.25486

      Had no problems with the installation of the latest drivers from AMD.

      Registry Check:

      Win10 Insider Preview Build 14393.3:

      AMD Settings: Radeon Software Version: 16.7.3; Radeon Settings Version: 2016.0615.455.7018 <-- error?
      AIDA64 v5.75.3920 Beta > Software > Installed Programs: AMD Settings: 2016.0708.1511.25486 <-- why the difference? <- must be reading the 32bit version

       

      I do remember an error message dring the install process that made reference to a problem with AMD Settings. At the time I did not know which version: 32 or 64 bit - a bit of

      investigating and I determined it was the 64bit version; as indicated below.

       

      Registry Check:

      The listing below, in {}'s, is the 64bit registry entry missing from this version of Windows - anyone have an explanation as to why?

      {HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{E68043FB-73DF-C829-A36D-4DB96A119CDD}}
      {DisplayName - AMD Settings}
      {DisplayVersion - 2016.0708.1511.25486}
