The following should help all folks who are new to mXDriver. There is an old installation method which is not needed any more (since mXDriver 16.9.1 Reloaded) but if you want/need to install older versions of mXDriver the old method is still valid. Please read the Howto carefully as forgetting something or making mistakes will end up in a unsuccessful installation of mXDriver. If you have problems although you worked completely and correctly through this Howto please see the FAQ or post in the comments section of the regarding driver release.
Installing mXDriver is pretty straightforward just follow the instructions below. These are for mXDriver 16.9.1 Reloaded and above. For older releases until mXDriver 16.9.1 please see the old installation method below.
- Uninstall the old AMD driver completely. Best is to use current version of Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU)!

- Double-click on the certificate.
- Press button “Install Certificate”.
- Choose “Local Machine” as Store Location and press Next.
- Choose “Place all certificates in the following store” and select “Trusted Root Certification Authorities” via the Browse button.
- Press finish and a message should appear that the import was successful.
- Reboot the system.
- Start the installation of the driver by opening the Setup file.
- Choose the parts you want to install.
- At some point a window should appear asking you if you trust the publisher “mXDriver.com Code Certificate”, you need to select “Install” otherwise the driver won’t be installed.
- When the installation is finished it should read that “…software and drivers have successfully been installed.”
- Uncheck “Automatically download latest drivers”.
- Restart the system and enjoy the driver!
