MSFN XP Codec-Pack 5.5

Else, it should be just fine to go ahead and install again, ignoring "file is already present"-messages.
If yours is a fresh install of XP and it turns out, in the end, to be not working (the codec-pack or something else), just reinstall Windows. ^^
(Naa, just a joke. But should not be such a problem, as a fresh install has not much to be saved before reinstalling the OS, right?)
ps: but you may just wait for someone else to post a more indeepth comment on this

1. it copies the necessary dll's and other files (basically all files inside) to the c:\windows\system32 directory. That was ok in my case
2. it registers the codecs. This failed in my case. I don't know the reason.
Manual execution of a cmd file solved this. For the cmd file you might ask the author himself.

Incidentally, technically I am the author of the inf file and installation method based upon the original ideas from swgreed. Nowadays the project is simply updated once in a while by updating the files and re-uploading.

Thanks to "Wolfgang16" some installation issues could be fixed. (DivX was not registered in some cases).
Besides that, the codec pack was cleared out:
- WMV files were removed (I guess the majority already uses WMP11 and the codecs coming along with it.)
- Indeo files were also removed, because XP SP3 already contains the new files
- The downloadable .EXE is not a self-installer anymore, just in case you accidentaly double-clicked it. It installs with the silent switch "codecs_4.0.exe /s")
- Updated codes, see 1st posting

(fix: l3codecx.ax was deinstalled/removed after a reboot)

- updated DivX & XviD to latest versions
- changed behaviour of registering .ax-files (circumventing installation issues)

It will therefore install silently if you accidentally double-click it, and is therefore compatible with a live system as well as unattended use.
Mediafire download: codecs_5.5.zip #(will not stay there for ever)

Searching the script files who listed the Quicktime registering Code, such as codec.cmd, codec.inf, codec.reg.
Because they have put the Support for the QT-Lite!
Want to install the Quicktime in WinXP system, without the unnecessary stuff.
thanks in advance.

Codec Pack 5.5 Install, restart and try again. Do not reproduce.
Install Kazaa Lite Mega Codec Pack 3.45 reboot and try again. It worked.
Codec Pack 5.5 brings the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC?
