I'm confused why they need the two versions for Windows 8. .NET 4 is on every Windows 8 box last I checked.

Too bad that AMD still isn't supporting Radeon HD 7450 - yes it is an OEM card but equally I expect AMD to fully support all the GPU's that they put out there.

About freaking time, I had to roll back to 12.10 because of XBMC issue.

Is this a desktop or Mobility chipset part?

(It's a fair question; Mobility part support has been spotty, as is the case with built-in (to CPU or chipset) GPU support - HD4200 - a chipset-based GPU part common to both notebooks and desktops, was left badly in the lurch, while HD54xx support (this is a Mobility GPU that also shows up in fanless desktop clothes) has been rock-solid for the most part; in fact, it's been supported by every 12.11 beta to date.)

Okay - why .NET Framework 4? Simple - this is a unified (Vista and later) driver; while Windows 8 includes .NET Framework 4 as part of the OS core, neither 7 or Vista do. This version of CCC *requires* .NET Framework 4 or later - hence it's inclusion for OSes earlier than 8.

(NOTE - this same driver also applies to Windows Server 2003R2 and later; yes, including Server 2012 - regardless of whether the Desktop Experience is installed or not.

Yes. I just don't see the point of offering the other driver for 8 since .net 2/3/3.5 aren't installed by default in 8.

Oops, I guess they are installed by default. They weren't in one of the previews so nevermind.

Still, 4 is too so I still don't see the point.

Nope - it is a desktop chip. It is an OEM chip that is sold through Lenovo, HP etc. along with video card vendors too thus you're dependent upon the OEM to provide the driver rather than the GPU vendor.

Still haven't fixed Photoshop in Windows 8. I'm starting to really despise AMD.

What version of Photoshop are you using? I'm on CS6 extended 64bit and I haven't noticed anything odd.
