Affected Operating Systems and additional information
  • Microsoft Windows 7
  • The system is configured with WinDVD 8 SD
  • The WinDVD installer is expected to leave behind transform files in the software uninstall directory. A bug in InshallShield prevents the installer from writing the correct files to Windows 7 uninstall directories. If the original install files are removed from the system, the program cannot be uninstalled.
