    AMD Radeon Settings Will Not Open


      My issue is I cannot open the "AMD Radeon Settings" either from the desktop, or through "C:\Program Files\AMD\CNext\CNext\RadeonSettings.exe"


      Running an RX480 on a fresh Windows 10 x64 install (fully updated). Radeon drivers updated to latest (Crimson ReLive Edition 17.11.1). Display was cloned to my TV (both displays are 1080p/60hz) with the TV getting send Limited RGB color space. I cannot give you a full rundown, as I can't access the settings.


      I click to open, get the usual windows loading circle, and then nothing happens. I have already tried a complete uninstall/install via DDU and the AMD Cleanup utility. After re-installation of the drivers, the problem will go away at first, but after a few hours the settings are back to not opening.


      Here is a video capture of my issue. For some reason the mouse doesn't animate, but in actuality the circle is spinning.

          Please try a different driver version, such as 17.11.2.

            I did a fully fresh install of Windows and everything worked fine with the default drivers it installed (17.7). I updated to 17.11.4 and it started acting as before. The monitor would not wake up after it was set to turn off after a time (requiring a reboot), and the settings menu would not open. I started running 17.7.2 and it seems to be working fine, so it's definitely a driver issue. How do I prevent Windows update from automatically updating, as I'm sure it will screw it all back up once the latest drivers get approved by MS?


            Here are my specs right now (running 17.7.2) which is working so far.
