PowerDVD 6 Silent Install

27 posts in this topic

updated Mar 07, 2005

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

mce_sym.reg

powerdvd.sim

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

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CyberLink\Common\CLVSD]

extract your trial edition powerdvd6.exe to a folder

copy and paste the two files above to that folder

open custom.ini

add

silent=1

save custom.ini

repack using winrar sfx

;The comment below contains SFX script commands

Setup=setup.exe
TempMode
Silent=1
Overwrite=1

Powerdvd 6 Retail Edition

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

credit goes to Sanjay

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
TempMode
Silent=1
Overwrite=1
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

powerdvd2thumb.jpg

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

credit goes to my friends Alanoll (mp3) and totoymola (avi divx)

mp3AVIdefault.reg

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

MCE_SYM.reg

Custom.ini

Setup.ini

Sure the only way to get rid of registration pop-up is to delete that exe file? Seems kinda harsh. Are there no reg "tweak"?

Any idea?

Why is that not allowed to ask?

The patch is an "update", install it the same way as main application, modify ini.

Is there a way to add the keys to upgrade PowerDVD with for example the Advance Audio Pack ?

For the rest Everything works (main key etc.) ;)

Will these guides work for a OEM version of PowerDVD 6 as well?

I've tried using registry keys to insert the CD-Key but it doesn't work.

I install PDVD silently, simply by editing the custom.ini with silent=1. Then all I have to do is run setup.exe and the install runs silently.

But I am having difficulty inserting the key.

Edit your MCE_SYM.reg file...insert the serial there....

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CyberLink\PowerDVD]

"CDKey"="aaaaa-bbbbb-ccccc-ddddd-eeeee-fffff"

cyber - I edited the mce_sym.reg file and then installed PDVD6 but when I run it it still prompts for cdkey. I checked the registry and there are references with my cdkey.

Is there anything else I have to do other then the mce_sym.reg file edit?

The PowerDVD.sim file is already copied, as part of the install, to the installation location (c:\program files\cyberlink\powerdvd).

The first post with the guide for the trial version lists some other entries in the mce_sym.reg file so I'll add those in and give that a go.

I've still had no luck trying to to pre-populate the product key.

Any ideas?

I'm now trying using regmon to see what changes are done to the registry when I type in a product key.

But when I put exported registry entries to the test via a .reg file when I try to run the program it comes up saying that my 30day free trial has expired???

Hello All,

I have managed to get the Key pre-populated finally!

In the end it was quite easy to do.... I re-read over the first post a bit more carefully and this is what I came up with for my OEM version. I am unsure if the step for the powerdvd.sim file is required but this is how I got it to work so that is why it is there:

(1) copy the powerdvd folder from the OEM disc to a temp folder on your HDD

(2) for the program to install completely silently, simply edit the custom.ini file with "Silent=1"

(3) do a manual installation, then browse to C:\Program Files\Cyberlink\PowerDVD (this being the default)

(4) you should see there the "powerdvd.sim" file. Copy it to your temp folder, overwriting the existing file

(5) the "mce_sym.reg" file needs to be edited. This can be done by simply copying the code in the 1st post into the existing "mce_sym.reg" file - remember to overwrite or delete the original code in the file. However, some of the code from the 1st post is not required for the OEM 2CH version of PowerDVD6. The lines of code I removed were:

"UI_PMK"="VM7AA-xxxxx-BAJYM-xxxxx-6YWNN-xxxxx"

"UI_PMK"="xxxxx-R8TQP-xxxxx-7PMJ3-xxxxx-MAPBQ"

"InstalledPacks"="CPRM Pack, DivX Pack, DTS Pack, DTS 96/24 Pack, DVD-Audio Pack, Express Pack, Interactual Pack, Mobility Pack, MPEG4 AVC Pack"

This left me with my MCE_SYM.reg file looking like this:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CyberLink\Common\CLVSD]

"UIUseHVA"=dword:00000001

"EnableVMR"=dword:00000001

"EnableVMR9"=dword:00000001

"PV_FOR_MCE"=dword:00000001

"TwinViewDXVA"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CyberLink\Common\CLVSD\dxvadecodertest]

"EnableVMR"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Service\Video]

"PreferredMPEG2VideoDecoder"="{8ACD52ED-9C2D-4008-9129-DCE955D86065}"

"PreferredMPEG2AudioDecoder"="{284DC28A-4A7D-442c-BC2E-D7480556E4D8}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CyberLink\PowerDVD]

"CDKey"="***ENTER YOUR CDKEY HERE***"

"KeyUpdate"=dword:00000003

"MustUpdateKey"=dword:00000003

"HasCDKEY"=dword:00000001

"CPNAV"=dword:00000003

"UIEnableFeatures"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CyberLink\PowerDVD]

"HasCDKEY"=dword:00000001

"CPNAV"=dword:00000003

Having done all this - simply running kicking off the install by running SETUP.EXE will silently install the program, via the edited CUSTOM.ini, and the CD-KEY is inserted via the POWERDVD.SIM MCE_SYM.REG files.

As an extra step, which is already mentioned in the earlier posts, you can delete the OLRSUBMISSION folder from PROGRAM FILES\CYBERLINK\POWERDVD so you won't see the registration page everytime you run PDVD6.

Hope this helps anyone that is in the same boat I was in.

Cheers to the other guys who originally made the posts on how to do this. All credit to those guys.

Even though my process works - I am having trouble with DVD & LiveTV playbackin MCE2005.

LiveTV runs but is very jumpy

DVD Playback goes to a black screen and then nothing.
