Radeon Settings take no effect in game

Hello AMD-Community,


my problem is that my Driver-Software Crimson seems not to work as it should.

For example I started the two games Path of Exile and Tomb Raider via their own Radeon Settings with Vsync always on and Vsync game setting off.

Now the frames should be locked by the refresh rate of my monitor (60Hz) but they aren't locked at 60 fps.

This indicates to me that my Radeon Settings would have no effect by any means.

What I did so far was uninstalling the driver with DDU (the recommended way -> windows safe mode). Deinstallation was fine but is it normal that

even with network dirvers loaded the amd driver couldn't be installed in windows safe mode? Error Massage was "Couldn't detect Driver".

In windows normal mode I run in no installing problems.


edit: same problem with Catalyst 15.7.1! Game profiles have no effect...
