However, movies compressed with Cinepak are generally still playable in most media players (including the Microsft Windows Media Player).
If you already have Cinepak installed, you can update to our version just by copying ICCVID.DLL over the top of the copy you already have (in Win 9X, \windows\system; in Win NT/2K/XP, \winnt\system32).
If you do not already have Cinepak installed, then you did not choose to install the multimedia/video components when you installed Windows. In that case, the codec is not enough; you are missing a number of other files you need in order to view videos.
If you are truly stubborn, and want to install this despite all of these words, here's how. The OEMSETUP.INF file included in the zip is designed for older operating systems. For the newer systems, just extract the DLL, copy it to \winnt\system32 or \windows\system32, and run this registry script
. That's all it takes.
