    Does not seem OK to me. I mean the missing OpenCL and DirectCompute checkboxes.
    System has an Intel E2200 CPU, 2 GB of RAM, Gigabyte mobo, WinXP Pro SP3 32-bit, latest non-Beta AMD Radeon drivers.
    If you need more info on my config/specs, please tell me.

    Windows XP doesn't have DX11 so yes, this is normal.

    I am using Windows 8.1 32-bit on the same computer, but it failed with a "rug display" after one of the latest Windows Updates. Until I fix that, I need to use WinXP for now.

    Do you mean to say DirectCompute and OpenCL are DirectX dependent? Did not know that.

    IIRC, a GeForce card on the same PC showed them fine.

    DirectCompute is DX dependant yes, it was introduced with DX11.

    OpenCL isn't but I'd guess that the Catalyst suite doesn't install OpenCL drivers with DX9. When you installed the drivers, did the Catalyst installer list the OpenCL drivers?

    Check if you have these in your system:

    SlotMaximizerBe.dll
    SlotMaximizerAg.dll
    amdocl.dll
    OpenCL.dll
    OpenVideo.dll
    OVDecode.dll
