Guide For |Trial and Retail Version|

(how to use Winrar sfx) click here

Credit goes to agiha who came up with the initial solution on how to make Power DVD 6 install silently for the Trial version

agiha solution:

a.) install powerdvd6 trial

b.) enter your PowerDVD Key (powerdvd will shut down)

c.) enter all your other keys for plugins (each time u add a plugin key PowerDVD will shut down)

now go to C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD

capture 2 files



Here is the code for those that don't have a mce_sym.reg (note i remove my serial)

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Service\Video]
"InstalledPacks"="CPRM Pack, DivX Pack, DTS Pack, DTS 96/24 Pack, DVD-Audio Pack, Express Pack, Interactual Pack, Mobility Pack, MPEG4 AVC Pack"

extract your trial edition powerdvd6.exe to a folder

copy and paste the two files above to that folder

open custom.ini



save custom.ini

repack using winrar sfx

Title=Cyberlink PowerDVD DLX 6.0.1102


Powerdvd 6 Retail Edition

(getting around the POP UP asking for your name and company name)

1. Extract the PowerDVD Retail version exe file to a folder called PowerDVD6.

2. From within the extracted folder PowerDVD6, Run Setup.exe with -R switch.

3. Complete the entire installation.

3. Retrieve setup.iss file from the Windows directory and copy it to the PowerDVD6 folder. Or download the one at the bottom of this post.

4. Copy the 'Custom.ini, MCE_SYM.reg, PowerDVD.sim' files provided by you to the PowerDVD6 folder overwriting the existing files.

4. Repack the PowerDVD6 folder using WinRAR SFX with the following settings:

But when u create your sfx add this to your sfx comment

;The comment below contains SFX script commands

Setup=setup.exe -s
Title=Cyberlink PowerDVD DLX 6.0.1102

you will notice there is a "-s" at the end of setup


my little contribution

getting rid of registration pop up when u first run powerdvd6

del "%systemdrive%\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\OLRSubmission\OLRSubmission.exe"
del "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\CyberLink PowerDVD\On-Line Registration.lnk"

add the code above to your cleanup.cmd

if u did everything correctly you should see this image when u first run PowerDVD


you should have 15 plugins all together, if u entered all the plugin keys.

if you are missing one you missed one key or your key is invalid.

mp3AVIdefault.reg below will force mp3 to be played by Winamp and force AVI to be played by PowerDVD (divx)

u should put this registry tweak at the very end of your batch file or runonceEx.cmd

My installation of PowerDVD works fine. The only irritating thing is that the program at the start wants to connect to the Internet. If no connection is available, within a few seconds it continues normally.

I've done every thing in this guide for the retail silent install. Silent install goes great but it still asks me for my key. I have attached the files that are edited within the setup procedure. Thanks for any help in advance.

UPDATE: Problem solved turns out the code above for the MCE_SYM.reg has REGEDIT4 and i needed Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
