I rebooted, and now it has a "play now" button which when I click it just dithers and does nothing. i can't find the exe to launch the game again. So I'm going to try and re-download the game from my "game backup copy", however I am not enthusiastic that it'll work. If it doesn't work right off the back this time, I do think I'll crash and test more tomorrow or this weekend. Sorry....
For what it's worth, while it was working, it was smooth.
Thanks for the update on that.
In the meantime I'll share some very good advise about manually uninstall drivers that was posted by another user in another forum a while back. This has helped me get a fresh start to any new AMD driver. I found this while searching for something. I take no credit but it does work
. As I am not keen on using DDU at this time.
FYI: don't make an compromises on the registry porition. Even if you see other ATI/AMD keys. They appear to be for 17.7.1 or whatever version MS keeps downloading.GUIDE FOR WIN 10 + CRIMSONRemove Drivers:
1. Access "Programs and Features" via "Control Panel"
2. Double Click “AMD Install Manager”
3. Use the "Express Uninstall" Option
4. Restart the PC when finishedSide note:
(For me I found that win10 always keeps installing AMD driver 17.7.1 )
So I have to uninstall that and reboot again.
Once I reboot again, I notice that I still have AMD drivers found under Display Adapters from Device Manager.
So I uninstall them and reboot. I still had them there after a 3rd reboot (this may not be the case for you). So I had to uninstall them again and reboot again.
After the 4th or so reboot this time I read MS Basic Display Adapter.
This is when I went to the next steps from the user who created these instructions:Remove left over files/folders:
1. Access "Folder Options" from "Windows Control Panel"
2. Click the view tab and select “Show Hidden Files/ Folders And Drives" (Apply Settings)
3. Access Drive “C” (OS Location)
4. Delete the folder named “AMD” (Side Note: Don't delete this if you want to keep your previous copy just in case you need to revert back to this version of Crimson
)Remove left over registry entries:
1. Click start and type "Regedit", then press enter
2. Click “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” and extend the folder
3. Click “SOFTWARE” and extend the folder
4. Delete the "AMD" folder
5. Click “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE” and extend the folder
6. Click “SOFTWARE” and extend the folder
7. Delete the "ATI Technologies" folders
8. Click “WOW6432Node” and extend the folder
9. Delete the "ATI Technologies" folders
10. Click “HKEY_USERS” and extend the folder
11. Click “S-1-5-21-545761268-2676804339-3983074714-1001" and extend the folder
12. Click "SOFTWARE" and extend the folder
13. Delete the "AMD" folder
