[solved] how can i enable OpenCL?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
so i tried a lot of different driver installations (clean installs) and SDK install and i can not get OpenCL back on my system.

anyone has any idea why the drivers dont install it?
if i remember correctly i had it installed some time ago and it must have been removed when i updated a driver...

i need it to fold on my GPU so any help would be very welcome:( and i will also need it for the new blender render engine:(

SOLUTION


i found a other thread where it was mentioned to remove all installers from ATI/AMD which prevents new installers to work correctly with a software called
Windows Installer CleanUp Utility it can be downloaded here: http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Windows-Installer-CleanUp-Utility-Download-18442.html

so what i did is this:

1. uninstalled all AMD/ATI software
2. rebooted into safe mode
3. run driver sweeper and removed all AT/AMD stuff
4. run Windows Installer CleanUp Utility and removed all the ATI/AMD isntallers
5. rebooted (back to normal mode)
6. run ccleaner to clean the registry which had quite a few things about ATI/AMD in there
7. rebooted
8. installed latest AMD driver
9. rebooted
10. success:cheers:

as if i havent tried that... i just went back through a lot of drivers but the installation of the APP SDK always fails.

in the log file it just says:

as you can see the installation fails and that is with the latest driver. and as you might see as well is that the log is pretty much useless since it has no information why it fails...

oh and here with the latest driver

yeah that did not work, it always gave me a msg that it is already installed and i need to remove that version first... however i found a solution.

i found a other thread where it was mentioned to remove all installers from ATI/AMD which prevents new installers to work correctly with a software called
Windows Installer CleanUp Utility it can be downloaded here: http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Windows-Installer-CleanUp-Utility-Download-18442.html

2. rebooted into safe mode
3. run driver sweeper and removed all AT/AMD stuff
4. run Windows Installer CleanUp Utility and removed all the ATI/AMD isntallers
5. rebooted (back to normal mode)
6. run ccleaner to clean the registry which had quite a few things about ATI/AMD in there
7. rebooted
8. installed latest AMD driver
9. rebooted
10. success:cheers:

Using Driver Sweeper is what probably caused the problems in the first place btw. I mention because about 99% of the time I see or hear about AMD user's driver troubles, they have used driver sweeper in the process. It's explicitly not recommended on the AMD site..

I've been using radeon cards for about 5 years now, and i've never used driver sweeper, and ive not had any driver problems in those 5 years, to date.

Uninstall the previous drivers, including CCC etc.
Run a disk/registry clean.
Reboot.
Install the new drivers.
Reboot.
Done.

Also, using the Device Manager, is safer than driver sweeper.

well that might be worth some testing and see if it really causes problems when using driver sweeper.
i installed a nvidia card to do some testing and used driver sweeper to clean all the stuff maybe that was really the reason that caused the problem.
after this experience it looks like the problem could hve been caused by the driver sweeper since it did not remove the installers which in the end caused the whole problem.
