    VLC media player installation on Sony Windows laptop auto stops at 50%

    When I tried to install VLC media player on my Sony Windows laptop, the process is auto stopping at 50%. The same thing repeats when I tried it for the second time. How can I fix up this issue?

    Hi............


    Yeah! I got your problem.

    1.The file from which you are trying to install may be corrupted.

    2.Try to download the another file.

    3.It is better to download from :http://vlc-media-player.en.softonic.com/:.

    4.Then you install that file.

    Thanks....................

    Dear Friend!!
    It might be possible that the setup application you are using could be corrupt.
    But for once, you should try to install DirectX 9.0 or above and again run the setup.DirectX is one of the requirements for VLC Player which is not Pre installed in many machines.
    Else download new setup from
    www.download.cnet.com

    hi dere,

    In my opinion just try reinstall a new version of VLC Media Player.
    install it and if it happens again then just remove all registry files remaining of it and clean DISK.
    then install...

    Hi,

    The situation demands a fersh look at the software itself.

    Check the Media in which the program is stored, if the CD/DVD is corrupt or not,

    Check the program which can be corrupted due to reasons.

    The HDD can be corrupt and run scandisk to verify the status of the HDD.

    Scan the System using a good antivirus if any virus infection is the reason behind the problem or not.

    Download a fresh copy of VLC MP and uninstall the old one first, reinstall then,

    Thanks,

    Dear Friend,

    You did not tell that what is message from the setup when it auto stops while installing VLC on your laptop.
    So, it is difficult to give you exact solution and help for this problem.

    There are so many reasons and solutions for this type of problem.


    But, i can help you in one way, this problem usually occurs when the file is infected or incomplete.
    Follow the simple below, to try to solve the problem -

    1) Delete the VLC setup which you have now.

    2) Now, download a new setup of VLC from its website, and let download finish completely.

    3) Now, Refresh desktop.

    4) Now, Run the VLC setup, you downloaded now.

    It should now install completely and easily.

    If then also you have problem, kindly write the message from setup, for the problem,then i can help you.

    Hi,
    Just make sure that the version you downloaded is not corrupted or pirated.
    It might be corrupted as you might have downloaded it from UNKNOWN or UNTRUSTED source.
    So in order to download the correct and latest version then just go to
    www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html.
    Just download and install it.
    Hope this surely helps....
