    Windows Update overwrites a new AMD driver to the 15.11 one


    Hello reader,

    I use Windows10 home with a AMD R7 370 and want to install the new drivers 17.6.2 or whatever was the newest one.

    But Windows doesnt want this and thinks that the 15.11 one is the newest one, so WU forces this 15.11 update.
    I started a thread on the AMD forums and was suggested to open up one here.

    My Problem:
    Windows installs this folder "C:\AMD\WU-CCC2"
    And inside "C:\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install" this script called "LaunchWLApp.bat" gets launched.
    start %SYSTEMDRIVE%\AMD\WU-CCC2\ccc2_install\WULaunchApp.exe "-ReInstall"

    In this folder there is a WUCNLog.log file with this ontop:
    "Log file created and initiating the pcrocess... --This is the original text, not my typo
    Starting the process..
    Checking for previous instances of CCC installed through WU.
    Check for any CN instance, installed through CIM.
    Found CN instance installed through CIM.
    Successfully uninstalled CN instance which is installed through CIM."

    I dont have a clue how to fix this, I think someone forgot to include a "stop" in a script that
    keeps looping itself and prevents me from upgrading to the new driver.


    What I already have done:

    • Removed Drivers through the Control Panel
    • Removed all remaining folders and files
    • Removed left over registry entries
    • Runned amdcleanuputility.exe
    • Used DDU
    • deinstalled my GPU drivers from the device manager
    • Run a windows tool to show and hide Windows updates, to block them from downloading
    • Used many Reg entries to block WU from updating
    • Done this all in safe mode





    I hope someone can help me, thank you for reading this.

    With kind regards,
    Deadalus, aka Lucas.

    Try to disable driver updates with this:

    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Device Metadata" /v "PreventDeviceMetadataFromNetwork" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f 
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DriverSearching" /v "DontSearchWindowsUpdate" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DriverSearching" /v "SearchOrderConfig" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "ExcludeWUDriversInQualityUpdate" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\Device Setup\Metadata Refresh" /Disable


    Check, if the display adapter's driver is removed via DriverStore Explorer.

    I forced deleted the outdated driver with DriverStore Explorer, run DDU and the AMD cleaning tool, installed the new one and windows update installed the outdated one again.

    I used your reg entries

    In that case, try to Roll back the driver, Windows should not install that version again afterwards.

    Should I rollback with the Device Manager, or should I install the original file?

    I did this, and now there is a funny thing.

    The software says its on the 17.6.2 version, but everything else is still 15.11.
    So this is going on the right way, I think.

    v15.x.x are "legacy " drivers for HD 7xxx series AMD GPUs. R5/R7 2xx cards were renamed HD 7xxx but R5/R7 3xx were completely different and shouldn't even work with legacy drivers. Until couple of weeks ago I had R5 260 card and 17.1.1 drivers were working fine.
    Did you try Download TechPowerUp GPU-Z | techPowerUp to see what exactly is going on ?

    Just which program says that you have v15.11 ?
    The first numbers in CPU-Z under "Driver version" (22.19.171.257) should also be in device manager.
