Installation of lightscribe system software on win 7 64 bit is rolling back
Every time I tried to install the lightscribe system software it is rolling back shortly before the end of installation without giving any error. Is there another driver for win 7 64 bit or how could I solve this problem?
Although LightScribe System Software is free & obtainable directly from the Lightscribe http://www.lightscribe.com/downloadSection/windows/index.aspx?id=810 site - you'll notice that the latest LightScribe ESD software [LS_Update_126.96.36.199_.exe] - fails to fully complete its install due to an error within their latest LightScribe system software update as this is an issue w/ either the software makers/venders or uploaders! So you can't use it & so either wait for a new LightScribe software update or just use an earlier LightScribe software version as follows:-
In order to correctly install any previous LightScribe System Software which is an earlier LightScribe System Software version release rather than the current installed version:- the same still applies to upgrading to any new LightScribe System Software release version:-> please go to the "Control Panel" & "open up "Applications and features" & in there you'll need to select "Lightscribe System Software" so that this software can be fully removed & then proceed to un-install it! - After that you'll be able to fully install any previous/new LightScribe System Software as a clean install.
The above [LS_Update_188.8.131.52_.exe] software package will fully install the LSS on any Windows 7 Enterprise/Professional (x64) RTM Build 7600 & Windows 8 Enterprise/Professional (x64) Build: 9200 operating systems which was obtained from out of a portion of my previous BD-R (LightScribe web-site) LightScribe System Software.mht complete web page together w/ ESD backup of an older LightScribe software version which I had done & still use due to those [LS_Update_184.108.40.206_.exe] Windows 8 (x64) installation issues!
LightScribe was conceived by Hewlett-Packard engineer Daryl Anderson. Further details can be found at Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LightScribe regarding LightScribe which has now ended in May 2011 & includes details about a stable release v220.127.116.11 for computer's LighScribe Optical Drives, & as such would be classified as the software part of of a computer's LighScribe Optical Drives hardware! Although HP www.hp.com did & still possibly supply www.lightscribe.com with their lightscribe drivers for downloads - one can also get them from HP as well - but maybe some users would not know exactly where to go within HP's site as HP aren't very clear with regards to finding this old data & the LightScribe Optical Drive would be useless without the LightScribe System Software due to LightScribe which ended in May 2011!
"Beginning in May 2011, HP LightScribe® technology optical disc drives will be at the end of their production life in HP Desktop Workstations and Commercial Desktop PCs."
Here is HP (US) alternative to the www.lightscribe.com site due to these "lightscibe - multiple site failures" over the week-ends & on week-days as no one seems to get much from LighScribe!
If any of the above LightScribe software fails - then you could either try to use the HP LightScribe System Software - v18.104.22.168 REV: A. (sp51638.exe) made by HP on their US site http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitemb-91820-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en as I've tested it out on my RTM edition of Windows 8 Professional (x64) - Build 9200 it both correctly installed & worked each time under (3) different clean install tests - or if that fails for any reasons then you could try one that Nero provides within either Nero 11 & 12 suites & try to use the latest Nero 11/12 software build - as both the Nero 11/12 suites & above provide LightScribe system software which usually gets installed during any clean Nero 11/12 installation!
Under Windows 8 Enterprise/Professional (x64) - should the LightScribe System Software for Nero 12 Platinum fail to be installed, you'll then need to use the www.lightscribe.com site to both download & manually install the LightScribe System Software yourself after Nero 12 Platinum has been installed - as I manually installed LightScribe System Software LS_Update_22.214.171.124_ which was obtained from a previous Blu-ray backup as I was unable to locate it within Nero 12 Platinum possibly caused by the new LightScribe System Software build install error which I explained in my first two lines (top) et cetera
a) This is where LightScribe System Software should be placed within Nero 12 Platinum (Nero Express) once it´s fully installed as per both of these screenshots shows!
I also had to manually install Nero CoverDesigner as Nero now provides this as a freebie add-on which has to be downloaded seperately for their new Nero 12 suites! Notice that the LightScribe System Software is also available within the Nero CoverDesigner as well!
b) This is where LightScribe System Software should be placed within Nero 12 Platinum (Nero CoverDesigner) once it´s fully installed as per both of these screenshots shows!
An alternative possibly if it works is for you to select an appropriate LightScribe software from "your LightScribe product manufacturer which will have the best knowledge of your specific configuration and needs, and they are recommended as your first source of updates whenever possible." - Use the "Dropdown Listings" & then save an appropriate executable file to your "Downloads" folder & then run the ESD after the download has completed as it may be able work w/ most LightScribe Optical Drives on the market today!
Notice:- Roxio Creator 2012 Pro & below doesn't provide any "LightScribe" system software during any installs at all! If you use any Roxio 2009 & above products, you'll then need to use the www.lightscribe.com site for your "LightScribe" system software!
You'll need to flip the LightScribe disc over as you insert it in to your "LightScribe Optical Drive" so that the disc data side is facing upwards & then only you'll be able to burn your images on to it! In order to successfully burn any LightScribe disc with an image of your own choice - you'll now need to study http://www.lightscribe.com/gettingstarted/index.aspx & in this section it details all the info you'll need in order to do this feature!
Having beta tested the previous LightScribe Software version 126.96.36.199 out multiple times over on Windows 7 Enterprise x64 Build 7600 & on Windows 8 Enterprise/Pro Build 9200 with my TechNet account this previous LightScribe Software edition 188.8.131.52 version which you can DOWNLOAD NOW does work correctly on both these Windows 7 & on Windows 8 O/S as well as on both Windows Vista & WinXP! There should be no need to install & run the LightScribe software as an "Admin compatibility" for LightScribe Software version 184.108.40.206 as you'll just only need to either do a signgle or a double click depending upon how your own Windows 8 settings are set & run the install program from any temp folder that's it was downloaded to et cetera - just as I did for my Norwegian Windows 8 Pro x64 Retail Upgrade I got from Microsoft Store just over two weeks ago - (but in your case your Win8 O/S will be either an English US/UK) & would not likely be in any foreign Win8 Pro O/S language as in my case.
