Just today i tried to update the latest drivers available for AMD Crimson (17.1.1 to 17.12.2). I tried to run the update -- but it failed. Every time I try, a box comes up that says
"AMD Software has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."
I tried downloading the relevant drivers package directly (win10-64bit-radeon-software-adrenalin-edition-17.12.2-dec19) and installing it locally, but the same error message came up.
I tried using the "DDU - Display Driver Uninstaller" to remove the GPU driver completely then tried to install the new driver. The same "AMD Software has stopped working" error message shows.
I tried using the "AMDcleanuputility" as well but in vain. The same result occurs. Also tried "Driver-talent" but it did not work either.
I tried doing the same things in safe mode, but got the same result. So now I don't have a GPU driver at all(except the windows basic one), and am still being prevented from installing any new.
This has worked perfectly before but I feel that there is something fishy about the latest Windows update.
Anyone with any input??????????
