You may use this information when speaking with the CyberLink PowerDirector customer service department. They should be able to fix your problem from there.

  • PowerDirector won't install on my PC, why is this?

    If the PowerDirector won't install on your computer, it could be the problem that originated during a previous installation. The issue usually occurs because the previous build was not uninstalled fully. Clean up the remnants of the old program (preview or full version) and remove the existing versions. You may now retry installing. Another reason may be that QuickTime has not been installed correctly and PowerDirector can’t install because of this.
