How to Resolve AMD Installer Error 195 [Oops! Something Went Wrong] in Windows PC

Although it is great software with the latest and updated technologies, AMD Radeon software has several graphics driver bugs that disrupt the proper functioning of the software.

In this article, we will look at AMD installer error 195. The AMD Installer 195 error code usually occurs when the AMD web server is unavailable due to firewall or antivirus protection, or when the AMD server is under maintenance.

What are the causes of the AMD Installer 195 error?

  • It turns out that the error message is often caused by third-party interference that prevents the installer from running properly. In some cases, this problem is caused by Windows Defender or a firewall interfering with the installation process. The Windows Defender firewall may block requests from the installer, which causes this problem.
  • Sometimes the problem may occur with a wireless connection. The reason can not be established (it may be due to a weak signal or other interference), but this has been reported by users.

How can I troubleshoot AMD Installer Error 195?


Reinstall AMD drivers or update them via Device Manager

  2. In Device Manager, find the ‘Display Adapters’ category and expand it.
  3. Find the drivers for your AMD graphics card, right-click on them and select ‘Update Drivers’.
  4. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the update process.
  5. Make sure your computer is connected to a stable internet connection during the update process.

Manually download and install AMD drivers

  1. Open your browser and visit the official AMD Drivers Support page.
  2. Go to Download AMD Drivers Manually. Find your video card product or select products from the list and click “Submit”.
