      So AMD Overdrive v3.1 won’t let me install on win2008R2 it says that the software is not compatable. I extracted the file with 7z but I didn’t find an msi to work with… bummer

      Is there another way to get over the you can’t install this on a server error? Has anyone else done this?

      I dont have AMD, either ATI, but i downloaded it:
      http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_overdrive.aspx

      Tried to install, seems theres an “error” indeed, or lets say this – software is dependable on OSes, which were included by the manufacturer(developer). But i found a solution for installing it. Go Properties, then Compability Mode -> and choose WIn XP or Win Vista. And woula ^_^

      So I did the compatibility thing and it works if you set the compatibility for all users to vista and allow administer privileges, the utillity starts to install and then it comes up with an error that write permission is not granted on this particular folder called:
      C:Windowswinsxsx86_microsoft.vc80.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.762_none_10b2f55f9bffb8f8

      I tried to remove the read only property of this folder and it wouldn’t allow me. It said that I couldn’t so I looked and it says that I have to be a TrustedInstaller to be able to change permissions for the folder. Does anyone know how to become a TrustedInstaller?

      I googled it and in my short time searching it seems that programs and programmers are considered TrustedInstaller, but can’t I be one too..

      This system was over clocked before…it can handle it but just maybe not under the windows 2008 r2 OS…

      mabye it’s because they do not expect a server to be overclocked since the cooling requirements and stability concerns, so MS has locked down this type of thing.

      However You can create a new user with admin permissions, and give them the trustedinstaller permission.

      You can do with with the users and group management. This is located within the computer/server management MSC control.

      You may also do this with the particular file. You can set the ownership as admin, or whatever username you want, and then modify permissions. I actually had a simaler problem today with a certain directory and this worked fine.

      I hope this helps.

      Also in WS2008 R1 I do not see trustedinstallers as a group. This may have been a new R2 group, However i will investigate other options….

      It can be installed, i just did it.

      You need to modify the MSI file internally.
      Do you want a copy?
