Recently, I had an issue installing the Ogg Vorbis codec on my Window 7 64bit OS. I downloaded the latest version I could find (v0.0.3.6) from here, but I couldn’t install it.
Finally, I found the solution. Just follow these steps:
- Unzip the contents of the file you downloaded to a folder. Make sure that there are no spaces to the path of the folder. I will use the
c:\tempfolder for the rest of the procedure.
- Open a command prompt with administrative rights. One way is to type
cmdto the search box of the start menu and either press
Ctrl + Shift + Enter, or right click on the
cmd.exeicon that appears on the search results and select
Run as Administrator.
- If you have 64bit Windows, your starting folder is
C:\Windows\system32. You should change to
C:\Windows\SysWOW64. One way is to type
cd ..\SysWOW64. If you have 32bit Windows, you can stay at
- Type in the following:
rundll32.exe setupapi.dll,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 0 c:\Temp\vorbisacm.inf. Note that the
c:\Tempfolder is the one I previously unzipped the codec files. You should replace this with your own folder of choice.
That’s it. All should be working fine now…
