What can I do when CyberLink PowerDirector 10 crashes?
Applied to: PowerDirector 10.0


  1. Please ensure your CyberLink PowerDirector is up-to-date. You can check software updates from below page:
  2. Update the graphics card and audio card drivers of your computer. If you are using an AMD / NVDIA / Intel graphics card, you can download latest driver from AMD / NVIDIA / Intel’s web site. If you have any problem with installing graphics card drivers, please contact your computer manufacturer or the manufacturer of the display and sound cards for latest drivers.
  3. Please check whether the drive where you have installed PowerDirector software has enough space on it. This is because large amount of memory space is required for buffering.
  4. Make sure that you logged in as an Administrator.
  5. Sometimes it might be due to other 3rd party codecs installing QuickTime alternative codec that cause the problem. Please follow the steps below to re-install QuickTime software:
    • Remove QuickTime from [Control Panel] (Please do not skip this step.)
    • Run QuickTimeInstaller.exe within CyberLink PowerDirector installation files.
    • If you purchased the download version, you can first uncompress your PowerDirector installation .exe file then find QuickTimeInstaller.exe under the uncompressed folder.
    • If you purchased the retail box version, you can open your installation disc folder then find QuickTimeInstaller.exe under PDIR folder.

Sometimes there may be some problems during the installation. You can try to remove CyberLink PowerDirector from [Control Panel], restart your system, and then re-install the program again. Please ensure you close all other applications while installing CyberLink PowerDirector.
