After reinstalling Windows XP Pro 32 bit and all the updates I am no longer able to open Catalyst, it gives me this error http://techstuph.com/2009/01/solution-cant...center-cccexe/. I've tried everything on that page but with no avail. I'm running an MSI Neo2 p35 FR along with an HD 4850 with 4 gigs of 1066. Before the windows reinstall everything was working perfect? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Did you try to uninstall it then download a fresh copy?

You may need to remove the ATI drivers...and install them again, they may be corrupt.

Is your video card functioning properly? Is access to Catalyst necessary, I never thought that it was when I played with ATI cards.

My experience with ATI cards taught me a couple of things:

a. Don't ever think that you can just update and accomplish anything. When things go wrong, be prepared to remove everything (Catalyst, MS.NET, drivers) and start over. Because any one of those may be responsible for your problems and changing just one is not going to cut it.

b. If the website says to install...a, then b, then c...install a, then b, then c.

I've downloaded 8.11 and 8.12 Catalsyt and Display driver twice reinstalled my Display driver and Catalsyt a few times along with service pack 3 and all the .net files from 1.1 and up. I can still run my games np but I need it for fan control and overclocking reasons. I should have specified more however, my bad. :thumbsup:

Well...I've already suggested what I can, based on my experience with my three ATI cards. Maybe someone else has a clue.
