  1. Wrong windows version installed

    A friend was recently helping me with PC issues but in the end we had to reinstall windows.

    Unfortunately he messed up and installed a trial version of the wrong edition of windows using the wrong installation media.

    This only came to light after I got messages about the trial expiring and really don't want to go through the whole reinstallation of all my apps etc. Is there any way I can install my full version of Windows 10 Home edition over the trial Windows 10 Enterprise without it wiping all my apps & private files?

    Step 4

    Catalyst reporting wrong version fix

    Just thought I'd make a topic for this, as it seems, a few people, have this issue.

    This an official response from AMD support.

    Most people so far have been reporting that Catalyst 12.4 is installed, but continues to show as 12.3 Suite in the CCC software. It's a known issue, but the drivers are installed correctly.

    After installing 12.4, compare the DRIVER version to the version listed on the release notes for 12.4. You can also check the driver version in Device Manager for that video card. If it is installed, it should list the version correctly.

    Try these uninstall steps first, however:

    1. Download the WICU.

    2. Uninstall everything related to ATI/AMD and reboot through programs and features in the Control Panel (programs and features).
    Use DriverSweeper (freeware) to remove any remnants of AMD (check the "AMD Display" box) (_Please visit us at

    3. Launch WICU and delete anything related to ATI/AMD/CCC.

    4. Delete all ATI/AMD folders in "C:\Program Files" and "C:\Program Files (x86)".

    5. Boot into safemode and navigate to the "C:\Windows\Assembly" folder and delete any assemblies which have the public token key "90ba9c70f846762e". It is possible that you won't find any, but check it.

    6. Reboot.

    7. Install the Catalyst package again. It should work now.
