If you got the error 1603 during every installation.

Tried everything described in help. Did dozens of reboots, changed every config.

Even uninstall, run amdcleanuputility, try to install again, nothing worked.

Still see the report: AMD Install Manager was not installed.


Then you may use monitors on discrete AMD Radeon and intern Intel HD at the same time?

try this:

Disconnect the monitors from Intel HD and keep only the one on discrete AMD Card.

Then try to install again -> error, reboot.

Then try to install again -> install finished without errors.


Error installation report say (freely translated from German):

in Topic: Package for Installation

Subtopic: AMD Install manager

- final status: Not successf.

- Version of Element:

- Size: 20 Mbytes


All other packages are installed with final status: successfull.


Happens in 17.9.3, 17.9.2, 17.9.1. I think in 17.8 it was called AMD settings install failed...

Every time, since I use my Intel HD for HDMI -> TV and second VGA monitor.

This is more Energy efficient for my 24/7 PC, cause AMD GPU can idle RAM clock.


AMD Radeon HD 7850 -> DP-VGA-Adapter -> SyncMaster 710v @75Hz

Intel HD 4600 -> HDMI -> LT26M1C (TV mostly deactivated in Windows)

Intel HD 4600 -> VGA -> amw Standard Monitor @75Hz





PS: Hope this can help someone with this spezial problem
