PowerDVD displays the message: “Critical update for PowerDVD!”

Issue:

PowerDVD displays "Critical update for PowerDVD!" message when you are trying to launch PowerDVD for the first time or you are notified every 14 days if there is a new patch available.

Cause:

Blu-ray Disc titles have adopted AACS (Advanced Access Content System) to protect the digital content. AACS keys are required to play some Blu-ray Disc titles. AACS keys were integrated into your PowerDVD for copy protection purposes. Occasional renewal of the AACS key is required.

Solution:

Click “Click here for more information” on the message dialog to connect to the CyberLink Web site and download the updated version of PowerDVD for AACS key renewal.
