I cannot add an app to the list to manually set it to high performance (Radeon instead of Intel HD). When I browse for an exe, nothing happens, the list is still empty. So, maybe I can edit some .cfg or .ini?


This is not my machine, but an example of what I'm looking to do: the list with iexplore.exe is what I meant. When I click 'Browse' and choose any exe (Portal2.exe, for instance) nothing happens. The list is empty, so I cannot set mode for Portal2.exe.

Sometimes the lists don't appear (not necessarily with Catalyst but generally) due to permission issues! Do you have full permission of the machine/software and OS etc? –  Dave Dec 14 '12 at 12:32
Yep, I'm admin and UAC is turned off. What more permissions should I have? –  noober Dec 15 '12 at 6:12
Can you please explain what you mean by app list in the Catalyst please? This may help –  Dave Dec 17 '12 at 8:35
Please see my update. I've attached a screenshot. –  noober Dec 17 '12 at 10:10
+1 for a better question. If you don't have an answer within 8 hours, I will check on my home PC. –  Dave Dec 17 '12 at 10:10
