But isn't this part of the problem when ALL traces that were installed with EMC9 in the beginning aren't removed with Clean Installer and Ashampoo?

You can uninstall Divx if you want to but you don't have to. Divx is a separate application and you don't need EMC to use Divx.

Is DivX one of the components that has to be removed for a clean uninstall or is it part of another manufacturers software package? Thanks.

 

 

Jo Doc,

 

As noted, DivX comes with EMC. It is a codec and does not need to be removed for a clean install. EMC9.x will register it when re-installed. Using DivX has advantages such as smaller video size and I've seen a 1/2 dozen set top dvd players that support it. This is the official website for DivX: http://www.divx.com. Here you can find the divx program. If you like the DivX format, I would suggest going with the official DivX package since EMC9.x is having some issues. The problem arose when people tried to install DivX software parallel to the EMC9.x install. If you have Vista, this is what I did to register and unregister divx: http://forums.support.roxio.com/index.php?...932&hl=divx.

 

 

Take care!

Sorry for the follow up question on this but I don't want to mess up this re-install again. Is DivX a component of EMC9? If it is, will it get re-installed when i re-installEMC9?

Divx is a separate program that you can install on any computer to play divx files. It's free. For a fee, you can download the Divx encoder and encode your files to the divx format. EMC9 Deluxe gave you the encoder built in so that, if you did not have this as a separately installed program, it would allow you to take files form within EMC9 and encode them to Divx.

When you uninstall EMC9, it should remove whatever Divx files it installed and if you already had another version of Divx, it should not effect it. That's the way I understand it.

There is a small amount of info here.

The divx parts of EMC will be removed when you uninstall EMC. You shouldn't need to remove Divx and you can just follow the steps in the clean install knowledge base.
