  • Too bad the driver package is no longer called catalyst
  • The name of the game is called Mirror's Edge Catalyst.
  • He is referring to old ATI/AMD Drivers, because they were called Catalyst, so if they had not changed the name to Radeon Software the game and the driver package would match. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Great, time to uninstall Raptr again! The biggest thing that makes me consider switching to nvidia is that piece of garbage malware. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • So you consider switching because you don't want to uncheck a setup option? :D
  • No, I consider switching because there doesn't seem to be a setup option TO uncheck. And even if there is one that I've missed, having a piece of opt out malware in your driver package is still very much not OK. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Been using radeon for years and never installed it :)
  • If you could tell me where I'm going wrong, I'd appreciate it greatly. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I don't know since I've never had this problem, I have a checkbox in the setup and I can uncheck it like most features... Something like this? http://support.raptr.com/support/solutions/articles/5000541606-why-was-a...
  • Yeah if it's just in the checklist I don't get the option unfortunately. It will let me not install my HDMI audio driver and such though lol. To be honest, I thought it was just something they did rather than some obscure issue with my setup. Strange. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • So why do you tick the box to install it in the first place? Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • I refer you above. Why do you ask redundant questions? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I asked the question before you answered the above. See the little date & time?
  • You did, but not before Paolo had already asked the very same question with slightly different phrasing. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • U need to be smarter. Use custom installation option for everything, not express.
  • I do. And you probably shouldn't tell people they need to be smarter when you substitute letters for words. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
