    OK...

    I uninstalled 9.6 first using the ATI Software uninstall utility and then
    wiping out the dregs with Driver Cleaner Pro before rebooting. I installed
    CCC 9.7 then rebooted, 9.9 Avivo then rebooted, 9.6 HDMI Audio then
    rebooted.

    Yet my CCC interface looks identical to 9.6 and nothing like the new one.

    I hate it when ATI upgrades **** up, not least because all the reboots make
    the process ridiculously time consuming.

    I use XP Pro SP3. I downloaded CCC 9.7 from the XP 32-bit link on ATI's web
    site. The file name is 9-7_xp32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu.exe. If you check a little
    higher on page 4 of the 9.7 release notes you'll see the sundry flavours of
    XP in the supported list.

    Be that as it may, I've installed it three times and no new interface. Oh,
    but rotation support does seem to reactivate some minutes after booting.

    ATI support seems to think it does. I've just been through a multiple email
    exchange with them, culminating in my sending them a few different system
    reports which got escalated (and very quickly abandoned with the advice to
    go back to 9.6).
