AtI Catalyst Drivers upgrade

  thumbscrew 23:38 09 Aug 2008

I've just tried to upgrade my ATI and the installation went almost to the end, but stopped and gave the following....."Setup will only run in Administrator mode-setup aborted". Can anyone help?

If Vista ,turn off your UAC untill it's done.
Control panel>user accounts>turn user account control off.

If xp,you could try installing in safe mode.
Or in safe mode with Vista if turning off UAC doesn't work.

Thanks both.....XP. I'll try safe mode in the morning.

Do you really need all the Catalyst software?

I use only the ATi driver plus ATi Tray Tools, a compact alterntive to Catalyst that achieves the majority of the features. See:
