A minute of your time please. I have been trying to re-install Power-DVD into my computer from a CD after uninstalling it some time back when it refused to run after working with it for a while, but it keeps bringing this error message. Could there be something I am doing wrong?

 

PowerDVD

An error occurred while launching the setup. (0x80040702)

Much obliged.

  • Your installer CD is already broken on some part. That image there at 95%, it is preparing the setup process and is loading the necessary files for the procedure. But unluckily when it hit 95%, it also hits the error. Maybe this is due to the quality of the CD where the setup files are contained. As time passes by, you just left you CDs in its jacket so it will be safe from scratches and to prolong its usefulness.
  • But the truth is, as long as it is not used, the CD’s surface tends to accumulate some white particles. It can be dust, or it can be mold. And also the CD jacket’s surface that is in contact with the sensitive part of the CD, its surface creates maps on the CD’s surface.
  • If your installation does not push through and still stops at 95%, replace it because the part of the CD where the data is being read and loaded is already damaged.

Files that are necessary for installing the software is missing. it is causing because your cd got damaged somehow. Check your CD surface for any kind of scratches or any damage sign. If there’s no sign at all, insert the CD into ROM and try to copy the entire cd into your hard drive.

You better copy all the files in one folder. That way it won’t scatter and would be lot more easy for you to recognize them. If the copy process completes successfully then run the installer file (.EXE file). If the files copied successfully and without any error, then the soft will be installed properly. If u can't copy the entire CD any way, then you can be sure there is something wrong with your CD and it’s time to replace it.
