1] Make sure that you are downloading the correct utility
First of all, you need to make sure that you are downloading AMD software for your driver. Otherwise, it won’t install on your system. What you need to do is go to amd.com. Now, expand the operating system you are using, and go to the Release Note of your driver. Then, scroll down and check Product Compatibility and make sure that your computer is compatible to install the software.
If you don’t know your driver details, open Device Manager, expand the Display Adapter, and see which AMD GPU you are using. You may have to probe a bit to find out the compatible software. Once you have downloaded the compatible software, try installing it. Hopefully, it will be installed.
2] Turn off Windows Defender Firewall and third-party antivirus temporarily
One of the reasons why you are unable to install AMD Software Installer is that your antivirus is blocking the installation. You have to turn off Windows Defender Firewall or antivirus temporarily and see if it works.
To disable Windows Defender Protection, follow the prescribed steps.
- Search out “Windows Security” from the Start Menu.
- Go to Virus & threat protection > Manage settings and turn off the toggle for all the options.
- Then, click on Firewall & network protection and turn off all the firewalls.
- Finally, restart your system and try installing the program.
If you have a third-party antivirus, then you need to turn it off. Once you do all, double-click on the setup file and try installing it. Hopefully, it will do the job for you. Make sure to re-enable the protection once the software is installed.
3] Install in Clean Boot
You need to perform Clean Boot and then perform the desired operation and see if that works for you. This will avoid conflicts with 3rd-party processes.
4] Try Installing the driver manually
Maybe there is a problem with the AMD server right now or it’s under maintenance. But in the meantime, you can download the driver from AMD’s website. Visit amd.com/support, then select your product, and download the driver you need. This is not a fix but a workaround that can try if the Radeon software is not getting installed.
Hopefully, these solutions will work for you.
