This 'fix' does not appear to work on XP based machines - which are already running DirectX 9. I'm still trying to figure what is causing the 'Runtime' error.
R6025 Runtime error. Pure Virtual function call.
This error produces an event log report of :
Faulting application videowave10.exe, version 10.0.0.78, faulting module wmvdecod.dll, version 11.0.5721.5145, fault address 0x0002f5a2.
Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted.
