PowerDVD Create cannot be reinstalled in Hebrew or Arabic - ThinkCentre, ThinkStation, ThinkPad



In Lenovo preloaded systems with Hebrew or Arabic, PowerDVD Create is translated in Hebrew and Arabic.  After uninstalling the translated version of PowerDVD Create, a reinstall cannot be installed in Hebrew or Arabic.

Affected configurations

The above symptom is associated with the following systems:

  • ThinkCentre
  • ThinkStation
  • ThinkPad

System is configured with:

  • DVD burner and PowerDVD Create

Operating Systems
  • Microsoft Windows 7
  • Microsoft Windows XP

The InstallShield version used by Cyberlink is limited in that no interactive installation screens are available for Hebrew or Arabic.  Since no translated installer is available, the user cannot choose Arabic or Hebrew to install the code in that language.


Use Silent Install with the command “SETUP.EXE –S” to install in Hebrew or Arabic.
