During the installation of the NVIDIA Purevideo Decoder software, Windows gives me an error message "'Cannot find layout.bin or disk1".  How do I correct this issue?


In certain cases, the NVIDIA Purevideo Decoder installation thinks the setup has completed before it really has and starts to do cleanup and deletion of the extracted temporary Purevideo Decoder installation files.

This will require that you run the installation of the NVIDIA Purevideo Decoder software one more time and add extensions to the command line to prevent the PC from deleting the temporary Purevideo DVD Decoder installation files.  The command line extensions "-a" and "-deleter" can be used to prevent the PC from cleaning up too early. To perform the installation with the command line extensions, please perform the following steps:

If you need to download the NVIDIA Purevideo DVD Decoder software, please download it from NVIDIA's website at:

ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/dvd_decoder/1.02-223/1.02-223_purevideo_decoder_retail.exe

Please remember the location where you downloaded the NVIDIA Purevideo DVD Decoder installation file.  For this particular installation, it would be easier to download the file to the root folder on your "C:\" drive.

Once you have downloaded the file to your hard drive, browse to your hard drive location where the file is located.  You will need to copy the file name by left-clicking over the name with your mouse and pressing the "Control" and "C" buttons on your keyboard at the same time to copy the file name to your memory.  For example, if you downloaded the NVIDIA Purevideo DVD Decoder Retail Software Version 1.02-223, the file name would be "NVIDIA_PureVideo_Decoder_Retail_1.02-223.exe ".

Once you have copied the file name of your NVIDIA Purevideo DVD Decoder installation file, click on the Windows Start button and select Run. This will bring up the Run command line window.  In the open field, type in the location of the file name on your hard drive, the name of the NVIDIA Purevideo DVD Decoder file name and the extensions "-a" and "-deleter".  For example, if you downloaded the NVIDIA Purevideo DVD Decoder software to your "C:\" drive and you downloaded the NVIDIA Purevideo DVD Decoder Retail Software Version 1.02-223, in the Open field, you would need to type:

"C:\NVIDIA_PureVideo_Decoder_Retail_1.02-223.exe" -a -deleter

 You will need to include quotes before the drive letter and after the .exe of the file name as shown above.  The screenshot below shows an example of how it would appear with the above version.

Finally, left-click the OK button to continue with the installation. The installation should extract and run without errors.
