    AMD installs Catalyst instead of Driver update


      Whenever I try to update my driver from 15.3, it 'updates' Catalyse software instead of the driver. Every time. So it makes it so I cannot update the driver to a current version. Is there any fix for this?

          I really don't see how that would help considering it's not a graphical or performance bug but whatever here ya go.

          Made a mistake on the driver. 15.3, will edit above. When I try to update from Radeon settings it just updates Catalyst instead. The program, not the driver through Catalyst. Just Catalyst. My driver remains not updated. This happens every time.
