I am running a modern machine with XP.
Well, one of my son's Mech Warrior games suddenly will not load because a codec is missing. I used gspot to troubleshoot, and it detailed that CRAM/MSV is missing. On further investigation, I think it is also called MSVC. As far as I can gather from many searches, this is an old codec from the WIN95 days, and comes with XP.
I tried the following:
>Reinstall XP, both from the consol using the /r command, and a normal repair reinstall.
>Downloading and installing msvidc32.dll, which one source told me was the problem. It wasn't.
>Searched both the WindowsXP Pro disk and the WIN95 cd's.
>Wandering around in the MS website until my fingers had blisters from the keyboard. All they referred me to was old Win95 fixes.
If ANYONE can tell me where I can download MSVC, or it possibly goes by the aliases of MS-CRAM, or CRAM/MSV, or possibly MICROSOFT VIDEO1, I would be most grateful. Even any advice would be great! Thanks...
