What are OSSelectorSetup.exe Error Messages?

OSSelectorSetup.exe Runtime Errors

Runtime errors are Acronis Disk Director Home errors that occur during "runtime". Runtime is pretty self-explanatory; it means that these EXE errors are triggered when OSSelectorSetup.exe is attempted to be loaded either when Acronis Disk Director Home is starting up, or in some cases already running. Runtime errors are the most common form of EXE error you will encounter using Acronis Disk Director Home.

In most cases, OSSelectorSetup.exe runtime errors occurring while the program is running will result in the program terminating abnormally. Most of these OSSelectorSetup.exe error messages mean that Acronis Disk Director Home was either unable to locate this file on startup, or the file is corrupt, resulting in a prematurely-aborted startup process. Generally, Acronis Disk Director Home will be unable to start without resolving these errors.

Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.

Finding the source of the OSSelectorSetup.exe error is key to properly resolving these errors. Although most of these EXE errors affecting OSSelectorSetup.exe will happen during startup, occasionally you will encounter a runtime error while using Installation. This can occur due to poor programming on behalf of Acronis, conflicts with other software or 3rd-party plug-ins, or caused by damaged and outdated hardware. Also, these types of OSSelectorSetup.exe errors can occur if it has been accidentally moved, deleted, or corrupted by a malware infection. Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.

CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying OSSelectorSetup.exe to your appropriate Windows system directory. Acronis typically does not release Acronis Disk Director Home EXE files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing OSSelectorSetup.exe and all other EXE files for Acronis Disk Director Home. An incorrectly installed EXE file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
