Vista Media Player Codecs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to know how to tell which mpeg is running in media player and media center.

    I have cyberlink and nvidia purevideo installed. How can I tell which codec is primary. How can I switch between the two to see which works best.

    Below is my systems info:

  • You probably need to do a reinstall of nero. Read the info on these two links.You probably need to do a complete uninstall and then use the nero cleaning tool to remove all nero files from the registry. You can run a msn or google search for advrcntr2.dll.There is plenty on this error.

  • Hola, Tengo el Windos Xp, y tengo instalado el Windows Media 11, cuando quiero abrir una imagen me sale un mensaje indicandome que me falta el archivo advrcntr2.dll. Lo Baje de DLL, pero sigue igual, por lo visto en antivirus lo elimino confundendole con un virus. Lo intentado de todas formas, reistalando el Media, incluso version superior, pero sigue igual. ¿que se puede hacer?  El SO no es el Vista. y la version del media tampoco.
