Radeon driver/ccc and .net framework

Discussion in 'ATI' started by Man-wai Chang, May 22, 2006.

  1. I don't understand. Why the Catalyst Control Center needed the .NET
    framework?

    Because they wrote it with DotNet. I can't understand why anyone cares.

    The programmers wrote it that way. It could have done without .NET.

    ATi's "vision" was to make the CCC extensible. Developers of tweak utilities
    (like Rage3D Tweak) can then easily add a panel to CCC. It works well in
    theory, but falls apart in practice.

    I think the CCC is a bloated piece of crap with or without .NET framework. I
    use ATi Tray Tools. http://www.guru3d.com/article/atitraytools/189/

    LOL - Somebody write an FAQ on .NET/CCC/Tray Tools....?? ;-)

    IMHO the use of the .NET framework is not really a problem (apart from the
    hassle of installing it), but the catalyst app itself is too large. If
    they were to cut out the bloat (video previews and so on) so it would sit
    in half the RAM (or less) and load in half the time, I'd possibly go back
    to it. I've encountered other apps built on .NET and they were tidy
    enough.

    You can't. The small percentage of Crossfire users will have to install CCC
    to enable Crossfire mode. Afterwards, they can always disable CCC as a
    startup service (that "cli.exe" or whatever it's called nowadays).

  9. I think the CCC is a bloated piece of crap with or without .NET framework. I
    New to me. So you just installed the Radeon Driver without the CCC? I am
    going to try it on the next driver release.

    For future reference, when you install drivers, select "custom
    installation". You can then install just the driver files, without the CCC
    component.
