Microsoft visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package SP1 (x64) install unsuccessful - RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just purchased a new laptop (Lenovo G70) with Windows 10 operating system. I am having a problem installing an video editing software that I also just purchased: Cyberlink's Power Director 14. When I attempt to install this software, I get the following message:

    "This process cannot continue because the Microsoft visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package SP1 (x64) install was unsuccessful...The installation will now abort." 

    I have contacted tech support at Cyberlink and they provided me with the following Microsoft information: "Certain MSI packages may fail with an error “Error 997. Overlapped I/O operation is in progress” As per the MSI log: MSI (s) (44:48) [15:07:21:799]: Determining source type MSI (s) (44:48) [15:07:21:799]: Source type from package ‘My_Package.msi': 2 MSI (s) (44:48) [15:07:21:799]: SECREPAIR: Hash Database: C:\Windows\Installer\SourceHash{AC1B6088-A6FC-9CDA-ABF2-60530F5DA203} MSI (s) (44:48) [15:07:21:799]: Note: 1: 2262 2: SourceHash…" "Error 997. Overlapped I/O operation is in progress: KB2918614 breaks Windows Installer Service" by Soumitra Mondal October 27, 2014, 

    Cyberlink keeps telling me to contact Microsoft.  I would greatly appreciate any help that you may be able to provide.

  • Hello Jen.

    Download the Microsoft visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package SP1 (x64) from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=2092 and install it manually (run the setup program as administrator); after completing the installation, reboot your system and try installing again Cyberlink's software.Bye.

    I have the same problem as Jen. A new computer and the first software I try to install is Powerdirector 14.

    I get the same message as Jen and when I try the solution posted above I get the following error.

    Help and Support for more information. HRESULT:0x800736B3.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Same error trying to install Cyberlink's Power Director 15 on Windows 10 (HP Elite x2) today ...

    The proposed solution by Luigi Bruno is not working (Microsoft visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package SP1 (x64) cannot even be installed, even as administrator).

    Any idea? (currently waiting for the answer from the editor of Power Director ...)
