"Radeon Settings: host application has stopped working".

Guys, I already followed the steps described in this --> thread but since Catalyst became Crimson I couldn't event start it once.  While Windows is starting I get the "Radeon Settings: host application has stopped working" error.


I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1.

My card is a Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 Ghz Edition OC 2Gb DDR5 PCI-E.


Regarding the thread mentioned before, I got the following results:


  • About DISM, the Microsoft KB in that post suggested me to install the patch "System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821) [October 2014]".  I did it but didn't work.


  • SFC didn't find anything wrong.


  • I tried with several versions of Crimson (16.7.3, 16.9.1 and 16.9.2) on a brand new Windows installation to avoid driver and software conflicts: I installed a completely clean copy of Windows, with no more drivers than Windows default drivers and no other software at all. But every time I try to start the utility or it runs at startup, I get the error mentioned before.


I'm adding more details about the crash:
