Problems Installing Divx

C

Connie

My computer crashed and I'm trying to install Divx codec. I thought I only
needed the codec but the file would not play so I downloaded all four
components. Now it will play in the Divx player but as soon as I set WMP as
my default I get a message the WMP does not support the file. They are all
..avi files. Just to test, I tried the same files on another PC and they play
fine. Can anyone suggest what I need to do?

Doesn't seem to be a lot of activity over there so if anyone has any other
suggestions, I would appreciate. I should say I tried uninstalling and
reinstalling numerous times to no avail.

========================================
Just guessing...but maybe you need the XviD codec:

(FWIW...it's always a good idea to create a System
Restore point before installing software or updates)

XviD Codec

Good luck...
