Default installation problems.

posting on behalf of a friend:

"upon installation of cyberlink power dvd 5.5, an error is recieved when the installation gets to 61%. the error is "There was an error launching the set up. Catastrophic failure." even after a reinstall of windows, the problem persisted. any other programs install fine. i installed cyberlink 4.0 instead, this installed fine but failed to actually work"

he has run memtest, and it passed fine.

he has reinstalled windows around 5 times in the last week, and every time something has gone wrong, and not worked. at the moment, everything works fine apart from this one thing. once this is fixed, he will be sorted, and have a fresh OS.


P4 3.6GHz Prescott.
Dell NF4 mobo
650W Dell PSU

EDIT: make that EIGHT reinstalls in the past week.

Have you ever considered that your cyberlink installation software is corrupt. Try another (newer) cyberlink power dvd version and see if you have the same problem.
