PowerDVD 8 & 9 Silent install

Recommended Posts

for PowerDVD Ultra v8.0.1830.50

you must modify this line "CDKey"="*****-*****-*****-*****-*****-*****" in PDVD8.reg

after this you must create silent SFX setup with WINRAR

Custom.ini

PDVD8.reg

First unpack power dvd setup to a folder.

Copy "setupCustom.ini" and "PDVD8.reg" files in the same folder as where you extracted your setup.

Open Winrar

-select option "Create Sfx archive"

-select "Best" from "Compression Method"

-select comment and copy this:

;The comment below contains SFX script commands

Setup=Setup.exe

Presetup=REGEDIT /S PDVD8.reg

TempMode

Silent=1

Overwrite=1

Your method does not work, because activation status is stored not only in registry but in files "PowerDVD8.sim" and "CLAud.sim".

You should replace original files with the activated ones.

Otherwise, you will be asked to activate the program at the first start.

PS: Sorry for my poor english;)

Extract the original installer.

Go to custom.ini file and add Silent=1 under [PowerDVD9] and change RichVideo=1 to RichVideo=0

Go to setup.ini file and make sure that EnableLangDlg=N and SuppressReboot=Y

Delete RichVideo folder.

Run silent installation from setup.exe without switches.
