Did I just get ripped off on this 6950? - Page 6

post #51 of 65
Thread Starter 
One question I have though... for both GPU's when I install the 11.9 driver this failure always occurs

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable
Final Status:Fail
Version of Item:10.0.30319
Size:9 Mbytes

What's that about? Everything else on the driver installs fine.

Yeah... popped my 6870 back in, re-installed 11.9 driver and everything works fine.

Hopefully this guy honors the return... if not... obvious he knew it was faulty to begin with.

Try this, quoted from a post on tomshardware;

"For other ppl that may have same problem, I'll list what ive done to get thru it.
To go thru "Application Install: install package failure!" error message, simply uninstall 'microsoft visual c++ 2010 redistributable' that comes with win7 sp1 from windows add/remove programs."

Then try installing drivers again.

It's faulty, bake it see if it works then return it if it doesn't.

Would this fix the problem though? I mean the driver installs fine just without C++

IDK it's worth a shot I guess

Not sure but someone else had the same problem and that fixed it. I'm just kind of skeptical to believe a faulty GPU would cause problems installing C++ while installing drivers. Not saying it will work or your GPU isn't actually damaged but it couldn't hurt to try.

Isn't it possible that uninstalling Microsoft C++ might cause problems with other software? What are the risks in uninstalling it?

You can always make a restore point before hand but I think installing drivers will re-install C++.

VC++ 2010 error is normal. That just means your installed version is newer than the redistributable that is included with the Catalyst driver.
