The install and activation of Power Director 13 Ultimate and all its features is a three stage process. The install os PD13 Ultimate, the patching of program files, and the unlocking of codecs. As with all Cruzified patches, the steps below are simple but must be followed.

Currently updates, plugins, and effects can be installed as normal, without the need to re-patch or re-activate the program again. Just be aware this could change with any future update. I recommend to make a backup prior to updating. Do not participate in "Product Improvement Programs" as this will give developers permission to access to your computer. If you want to register with Cyberlink, go to their website via your browser to do so. As again registering through the software places unwanted files/registry entries in your computer. Registration places you on Cyberlinks mailing list, but may also give you access to additional effects or plugin downloads.
