Radeon settings program refuses to open

Discussion created by budgiepanic on Jun 27, 2019

Whenever I try to launch the AMD radeon settings program on my computer, the program crashes/closes itself.

It will briefly appear in task manager for a few seconds then disappear.

The last time I know for certain that the program was working without issues was back in April. The uninstaller program still works without issue. Currently I have tried(nothing working):

   -Uninstalling the Current drivers and reinstalling them .

   -Installing older drivers.

   -clean uninstall of drivers and installing the latest drivers.

This is a really weird issue, as it seemed to have occurred without any incident. The card itself still works fine, running games and programs with no performance impact/ issues.

   system specs:

  • Card: AMD RX580
  • Operating system: Windows 10 Home, version: 1809
  • Currently installed AMD drivers: Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.5.2
  • Monitor: Samsung CFG70 27"
  • RAM: 16GB
  • CPU: intel i7-7700
  • Mobo: Asus H110M-A
  • PSU: Zalman 550W Gold PSU

The following video shows the behavior of the issue:

It doesn't matter what version of the drivers I use, the same thing happens everytime.
