    Yes, you're right. You won't be able to view release notes until going through all secure options and the link is changed....huh, i'll remove the release notes. 10x

    To ATI, some of us really the CCC version and pls keep the original CP version cause we don't like .NET and the fancy CCC interface. I am ex-NVIDIA user and I must say the forceware interface is very nice (even better than CP). Why can't you just using the tree like NVIDIA does.... :cool:

    I can't even get .NET Framework to work.I install .NET Framework and the .NET Framework SP1 patch and the security patch, but I still can't run any .NET applications (including ATI's CCC) :(

    Just a bit of a warning: If you play fable: the lost chapters, then don't install this driver. It will corrupt all of the shadows, or at least it did on my X800. I had to go back to 5.11 because it was bugging me too much.
