Need for Speed the Run - detected AMD 11.1 drivers, please upgrade to 11.7 ERROR!

I bought Need for Speed the Run and when I try to launch it it says

"Detected AMD Radeon driver version 11.1. The recommended driver version is 11.7. Please update drivers at http://www.amd.com/ before playing this game."

So I updated the drivers

1. AMD.com
2. Clicked on Support & Drivers.
3. Component Category: MAC Graphics, Product Line: Apple Boot Camp, Product Model: MacBook Pro, Operating System: Windows 7 - 64 Bit
4. Then I click on View Results and it takes me here: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...camp-win7.aspx
5. There's only one result, version #8.812.

So I download that, install it, it tells me it installed fine, but when I try to run the game it gives me the same error. What do I do? Thanks.

P.S. I know there are a bunch of threads around here like this, thing is none of them really have any solutions.

Question from the idiot box; did you restart your Windows 7 installation?

Had exact same issue and alert when trying to run Battlefield 3.

This link resolved it at AMD's download page.

Yes, of course, numerous times.

I installed both of the files on that page and rebooted; still the same problem!

Have you tried installing the mobile driver, not the boot camp one? Be sure to uninstall the current one you have first before installing this one:

Do you know which driver it is we have to remove first? I see lots of drivers, but none that indicate they are AMD Radeon drivers..

I know this is kind of an old thread, but I am currently having the same issue.

One of the 'Top Recommended Videos' at the bottom of the page should show you how. If you don't have an ATi/AMD driver listed, then you might just be running a windows generic driver at which point you don't have to uninstall anything.

Wow that was fast, thanks!
More on topic:
I searched a little further and this link has a more detailed answer: http://forum.macworld.se/topic/14822...1-nfs-the-run/ (I know it's a Swedish page, but the answer is at the bottom in English).

I tried it, but with beta driver 12.6, since the beta for 12.1 is not available anymore. That didn't work, but I'll try some other drivers tomorrow.
