CATALYST Control Center - a new way to control your ATI graphics card - Before we get started

Today ATI is launching a new piece of free software called CATALYST Control Center which offers a new and refreshing way of controlling your ATI based Radeon graphics cards past the usual "Advanced Properties" section built into Windows all these years. Inside we have a full preview along with our thoughts on the new software.

Before we get started


We quickly learned that you must have Microsoft .NET framework version 1.1 (and above) installed for the CATALYST Control Center to work. From Microsoft:


The .NET Framework version 1.1 redistributable package includes everything you need to run applications developed using the .NET Framework.


The .NET Framework version 1.1 provides improved scalability and performance, support for mobile device development with ASP.NET mobile controls (formerly the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit), support for Internet Protocol version 6, and ADO.NET classes for native communication with Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) and Oracle databases. It also enables the use of code access security to further lock down and isolate ASP.NET applications. For more information, read the .NET Framework Version 1.1 Product Overview.


Important: You cannot install two different language versions of the .NET Framework on the same machine. Attempting to install a second language version of the .NET Framework will cause the following error to appear: "Setup cannot install Microsoft .NET Framework because another version of the product is already installed." If you are targeting a non-English platform or if you wish to view .NET Framework resources in a different language, you must download the appropriate language version of the .NET Framework language pack.


You can download the Microsoft .NET framework version 1.1 Redistributable Package (24MB) here from the Microsoft website. Once you have this installed, you are ready to continue and open up the CATALYST Control Center.


You can access the control center by right clicking anywhere and you will have the option of easily accessing it, as you can see below.
