Thinkpad E560 - AMD Radeon R7 M370 - Adobe Premiere Pro cc 2017 - OpenCL - amdocl64.dll - Greyed out

How frustrating! I have a new Lenovo E560 Laptop with 16Gb of Memory and a 2GB SSD drive. Awesome. OK, maybe not.

I have been struggling with Adobe CC for a month now and have installed all the latest AMD drivers etc and was not able to activate OpenCL for projects. Video rendering and playback was always greyed out. I kinda gave up. I knew the Intel Graphics card was taking preference but I could not solve the issue.

After watching Chinfat's new Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017 series (you should watch this and subscribe) I thought I would have another go at fixing this.

If I opened a previous project created using a CUDA or OpenCL system I got this frustrating message so I knew there was an issue.

For millennials (short attention spans): - Here is what to do...

Rename amdocl64.dll to amdocl64.dll.annoyed in c:\windows\system32\

Start Premier Pro. Change General project settings to use OpenCL. Premiere Pro will play and render twice as fast but still half as fast an Nvidia CUDA card but still...

Technical bits. No need to read. Do as above and continue to play with phone...
