Re: requires a missing windows codec

Unread postby Gary R » May 10th, 2010, 11:06 am

I see you are using an x64 (64 bit) version of Windows.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read before posting for help.

The section Posting for help for 64 bit versions of Windows explains why at this time we cannot offer help to you.
