You must first install the PowerDirector 11 main program file. Then after the installation is finished, install the content packs to ensure that all of the effects, templates, and menus are available to you in the PowerDirector library.

The content pack files don’t affect the program functions. The Content Pack Essential file includes all the effects, templates, and menus of previous PowerDirector version. The Content Pack Premium file includes the new templates for PowerDirector 11. If you cannot find the SmartSound audio clips or you find only a few templates in the library, please make sure you have installed all of the content pack files.

The download version of Director Suite / PowerDirector 11 Ultimate Suite contain the program and the extra content packs together as one installation and is comprised of a large collection of several ".partxx" files. Due to the file size limitation of the Windows operating system, the program has to be split in several files for download. After downloading all of the ".partxx files", ensure they are all in the same folder. After all of the files have been download, double click on the file that ends in "part1.exe" to start the installation process.

Important: Make sure the total file size downloaded is correct before running the installer. It is recommended that you back up your downloaded PowerDirector executable files, by either burning them to a disc or backing them up on another hard drive.
