the common failed moment is the following error message:
This installation needs to be launched from the ATI DVD Web Wizard
Setup will now exit.
Any further suggestions or comments as to what I might be doing incorrectly.

Get the file here(http://www2.ati.com/drivers/setup.exe)
Then form the setup file you have do a admin install using
as the parameters
This will give you the following files
2 Common folder
Now note that the Common folder contains all the filters and that the executable to this is the ATIDec.msi but if you click on it it will give you an error message that it cannot be run from the msi directly(bul*****). So I happened to check out this site and while going through the Quicktime deployment issues found out the solution.
So now to overide all the msi and other restriction you can run the msi directly without modifying or anything by this command
msiexec /i ATIDec.msi ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 /QB
The command ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 overides the cannot be run from the msi directly condition without even having to touch the ATIDec.msi with ORCA(A Msi editing tool). For those installing on fresh XP SP 2 machines it will give you an error that it needs some ISS scripting engine is not installed no to worry try to run the setup.exe directly it will give you an error message saying that it needs to be run from the ATi CD-wiz, do not click on ok, first go to your temp(C:\Documents and Settings\Your Namet\Local Settings\Temp) directory and from there look around for a file named ISScript9.Msi
Then in order to not get that error message and be able to install write a cmd file ATIDVD.cmd with the following code in it
msiexec /i ISScript9.Msi /qb
msiexec /i ATIDec.msi ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 /QB
Please note you need to put the actual file locations in place of the file names, I have tried this and I know it works...
Hope this help...
This is the method it should have been done, please don't tell me about all the other person's method, try out my way if it does not then complain, otherwise leave, peace

I have to ask: anyone noticed a difference in the decoder/installer for different versions of the ati cards?
For example: I've got an 9800pro and X800pro and both CD's labelled to avoid confusion, but when I install the decoder *ONLY* the 9800 disk will
work for either card.
Odd, but frustrating.
But if t_v's meathod is as sound as it sounds, all will be bliss.

Made it into my pc rebuild directory.

From what I understand, the ATI DVD codec is 3d hardware accelerated while the Cyberlink codec is software emulated.
Does anyone know for sure? Does anyone have CPU utilization numbers for both?

CPU utilization on my notebook is identical between both packages (between 20-30%)
So much for the "hardware accelerated" claims.
Oh well, if someone requests it, I'll post directions to build your own switchless installer (.exe) for this.
Anyone know how to enable hardware acceleration in WMP11?
Tools->Options->Performance->Advanced->Prefered decoder (greyed out)
I have 9800Pro with ATI decoder installed properly.
Is there a reg entry that I missed?
I tried this utility to 'force' the decoder but it didn't work either.

good news, i repackage ati dvd decoder with install rite and it work for me and no need for cd checking or anything... It'll install silently and the only way to tell if it's installed, go to control panel and look at listing under add/remove programs and you'll see "ATI DVD Decoder"
ATI DVD Decoder Ver 3.0.1 / 2.8mb / Updated 8-16-04
no switch are need and let me know if it worked or not.
EDIT: Uploaded newer one, and got rid of bunches of useless registry, mostly are unrelated to ati.
Hey dude, the link to the file is dead. Just tried it and it locked up my browser, had to go through the task manager to shut down the browser and then restart. (BTW... Windows XP MCE)
Not sure when it went, but I had to goto another post that allowed me to download directly from ATI. Been looking for that file all darn day. I have the CD from my dads ATI card (Raedon 9500), but the decoder says can't find ATI hardware. Oh well. Found the link to the ATI decoder from the site, and since the wizard wouldn't download it it took me forever to find the darn thing. Oh well, if you get the file back up you can repost. Koodous for trying though, I was hoping the link was still up.
Third page here on the forum you can find the file from ATI directly if you want it. Till later dude, nice try though.

Clear TEMP folder, Run, DO NOT click "ok" when msg "must be run from", copy files/folder from TEMP folder to "elsewhere", follow install instructions (see other posts) for the two MSI files.
This may or may not work/function depending on your ATI card. "Buyer beware".
Why? Bro had gotten a used "ATI All In Wonder VE PCI" (no CD - obtained drivers/software from ATI - YES the correct ones) and it refuses to allow non-copy-protected (recorded himself for a sermon) videos to be played from his videocam to edit for the WWW. He wound up using a webcam instead.
So... if it works for you, fine, otherwise don't complain and don't post saying "doesn't work". Why? I do NOT know and it wasn't worth the effort to figure it out. In addition, trying this may be construed as questionably legal even though you own the card but have no CD.
Frustrating, isn't it?
