Hi. I am a new member to the group, having recently bought & installed EMC9. Eversince installing it, I am having problem opening Divx AVI files. I can play Divx files using WMP as well as EMC's Media Experience. But Videowave or MyDVD cannot open the Divx files. I have followed the discussion in this forum on the subject and have tried using the procedure in MTolman's post to locate and register DivXDec.ax in the proper directory.
Failing that, I also tried jeanrosenfeld's suggestion of changing the registry key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Components\FFE4C516B47ACD044980517CD9521DD0 to point to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\9.0\DivX\ folder. Still no luck.
Would very much apprecite some help or a tip from any member of the forum.
I do not mind using somewhat dated Divx codec in EMC so long as it works. The situation right now is that I have:
- DivXDec.ax at Windows\system32 directory
- DivXDec.ax at :\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\9.0\DivX\ folder
- DivXDec.ax registered for both locations in the registry.
The environment is:
Windows XP - SP2
Pent 4, 3.0 GHz, 1 GB RAM
