Ok well i have always heard people complaining about ATI having terrible drivers and everyone has always wrote them off as fanboys or something but i just swapped to ATI and well..... i am having a driver issue.

I finally built this sig rig and after the usual vista/chipset install and update i installed the latest catalyst everything was fine. Until i clicked the "Avivo basic quality" option in CCC and it gave me a "MMACEPrev.exe has stopped working" and then catalyst immediately stops responding. If i close and open catalyst again it conveniently opens back to the broken avivo page and errors me again preventing me from getting to any other settings.

Is there a fix for this before i try to uninstall driver clean and install again and NEVER touch that option in CCC? maybe a way to get catalyst to open to a different option so it doesnt immediately fall on its face? I have googled and searched here but found no solutions. Thanks for any help in advance.

Restart and go back into catalyst control center it shouldn't open up the Avivo video options. I'm not sure why it would give you that error, are you using the most up to date drivers 9.2? Also I like to do a fresh format whenever I switch from nvidia to ATI, but Driver Sweeper is fine too.

Yeah just downloaded the latest catalyst from their site yesterday. And i did try rebooting but catalyst always opens up to the avivo section and gives me that lovely error.

I believe you can dl just the driver and not even have to install ccc is that is what your asking.

I have not had any major issues with ATI drivers.

Swapped to ATI you say!
Did you remove the drivers in the Control Panel and run the likes of DCPro in safe mode. If not, thats a great way to learn how to hate changing from nVidia to ATI or vise versa.
DCPro is available in the Downloads section.
If applicable, just make sure you only remove the Vid Drivers and not other nForce drivers too!

It is too late now but if that happened to me I would do a force shut down then reboot. A force shutdown does not save the bad changes. This does not just work on video card issues. If say your icons all of a sudden get messed up force shutdown will not save the bad settings. Will use the last proper shutdown settings. Saves lots of time for so many little annoying things.

its a completely fresh build, no nvidia drivers to conflict with.

Try updating windows's "C++ redistributable"
It worked for some people

Windows is already up to date unfortunately.

Asus drivers dont work at all..... after installing them i get "Could not load file CLI.Implementation the system cannot find the file specified" when i try to open catalyst..... This is a freaking nightmare, i am now regretting and thinking i should have never made this ATI purchase.

I am not implying anything about your computer skills, but I have had two 4850's, four 4870's, three GTX 260's, and a GTX 280 across multiple driver versions on this install of Vista x64 and haven't had a single driver issue.

I have had various nvidia cards and even an old ATI card with no problems like this but they were all on xp or vista 32bit. I have catalyst 9.2 finally up and running again, i guess i will just have to remember not to touch avivo......

Its not my "computer skills" causing this as google will immediately result in many other people having the same problems.

Many, or just some? Some just means a hardware/software conflict on certain systems, which both ATI and Nvidia drivers are susceptible to. Many means a major driver probem.

I love how you blame ATI for a problem which most users are not having and the exact source of which has not been determined.

I go through 8-10 different GPU's a year and this whole "Nvidia is bad, no ATI is bad" is just a big truckload of crap.

Many other people having the identical problem, their only solution was to uninstall/reinstall and avoid touching the basic quality in the avivo option in catalyst. This is a driver bug/glitch that i did not experience with the many, many versions of drivers i had installed and used with nvidia.

I posted asking for help, but checking your posts in this thread all i see is you advertising how many GPU's you have and run ( 10 GPU's a year LOL) instead of actually suggesting any solutions. If you cant suggest any help or insight to solve the problem then you can stop the trolling and humping of ATI's leg.

Have to agree. In all these years using ATI drivers, never had an error like described. Even after switching from Nvidia to ATI and not doing a clean install.

Installed 9.2 originally but 3DMark Vantage needed 9.1 drivers, so uninstalled them and using 9.1 (which is working fine with folding, too). No problems.
