To be honest, I never installed one of these, because I stick with K-Lite Codec Pack and I'm also not really familiar with inf-files (though I know a bit). But before reading every page of the thread you may try the "Search Topic" down left. Or check if there is an uninstall entry at the "Add/Remove Programs"-panel.

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

Thanks to all :thumbup

I'd appreciate it, for our members/information purposes, if either yourself or swgreed could document that fix here please!

Thank you.

As far as I understood, the installer does 2 things:
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.

Thanks for attempting to keep us informed!

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.

Update to Version 4.0

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

Updated to v4.2

- changed behaviour of registering .ax-files (circumventing installation issues)

How do I intergrate the codec pack with nLite? I'd like this codec to be installed as Windows XP installs.

just put it in the runonce section or execute it within a batch like:

codecs42.exe /s

Unfortunately I do not own Vista.
Did you try it in Vista? Does it work?

Otherwise I would suggest you try the Vista Codec Pack (http://shark007.net/...decpackage.html)

I've uploaded a 'dangerous', (RE:Post #781) version of the latest update v5.5.

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)

The codec package from the 1st post will also install silently, if you use the "/s" switch:
"codecs_5.5.exe /s"

Why do I have probs with playing divx files? Other codecs seemed to have registered fine, but the divx didn't seem to work. Am I doing something wrong?

Is anyone here, who has the old script files from the 2.2~2.5 codec pack?
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.

Install Win98SE, then updates, post run a downloaded video from youtube and play it WMP9
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?
