I have a Windows 7 64 bit installation dual booted with 64 bit Ubuntu. I have tried, to letter, the above described fix, and many others, numerous times.
I have downloaded the k-lite Megacodec pack, the codinstl.exe, and various others.
I have registered various versions of the codec dll, including the one in this article.
And dispite all this, and a number of system restarts, my machine refuses to play Indeo avis with windows media player, or play them in thief gold (the reason I need the codec). I have always been able to play them with VLC, right off the bat, prior to any installation attempt. But never in WMP.
So, does anyone have any ideas?
P.S. I ran everything, including thief, with administrator privileges. This includes codec installs, registration of the dlls, and running of the thief program.
