ATI catalyst control centre issues warning, and/or crashes when DisplayLink software is installed

ID: 183 - Updated: Aug 26, 2008 - Category: Configuration


On a machine with ATI graphics, the ATM Catalyst Control Centre will issue a warning if the DisplayLink screen is the only display. The warning is "The Catalyst Control Centre is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your ATI driver, or enable your ATI graphics adapter using the Display Manager".

Some parts of the tool, such as its adjustments submenu, may also not work. This is on all Operating systems.


The ATI Catalyst Control Center is a tool provided on machines with ATI graphics cards for managing extra screens. Some versions of this tool crash in the presence of DisplayLink software. This has been observed with versions since ATI driver version 8.360.


This warning may be harmless, and not actually affect your working environment. If it does affect your system, the workaround is to uninstall the ATI Catalyst Control Centre.
