I assume all of you that see any kind of Ad screens during installation are actually allowing the installer full access to the Internet then?
When I run the latest (1.7.20538) or previous installers, my Firewall pops up after the unpacking stage; potplayer.exe is asking for access; I select 'disable once' and don't receive a single prompt to install any other software during the rest of the install; absolutely nothing, not one screen or tick-box appears.
Just ran the installer through virustotal.com; not a single detection with any engine. It appears to try and make a couple of network connections, one to daum.net and another to a cloudfront account. I'm guessing if it can't get the latest Ad info from these sites, it doesn't bother showing the relevant installer screens at all.

WHAT THESE UNOFFICIAL PORTABLE APP MAKERS DO IT
UNZIP THE ORIGINAL INSTALLER and put just the essential files into a directory you sepcify. These follow a certain file directory structure
1. Run the Portable App Maker .. It will unzip the installers into a portable directory without the adware/crapware/spyware
2. If you want a non portable ... just replace the files from you usual intall library with the ones in the .\apps\ directory
If you have to reset settings to default just delete the .\data subdir.
(Optional) Just make you download the latest .exes from the links below
OpenCodecSetup64.exe in its folder.

OT, but does anyone have a valid email ID for the Potplayer forum administrator (who may also be the developer). Using the link given, my email bounced, with "No such user: <email@example.com>"
I'm unable to login to the forum or to complete the Forgot Password routine, or to re-register. Yet I get a message that my username and email ID are already in use.

Email is valid, every beta released, I send an email to that address and so far never failed.
It didn‘t fail. Please read again.
Tried everything above.
The Internet Security still blocks the Ad – blocks access to domain.
Tried @Nilzzon suggestion. Can see all files in 7zip but not executable Setup PotPlayer file.
Can you explain the process, please? ThanksSword is no substitute for kitchen-knife.
A portable app is in a zip with no installation. At least in my world.
Even before that, PotPlayer has always and keeps trying to contact multiple servers upon starting, even if you disable automatic updates and the like. Unsure what data is being sent, but it's the reason why I could never trust them. Here is a list of the URLs that I had to blacklist.
