About: This file is only meant for Windows 98 and no other versions of Windows.Hi, A friend of mine who is not connected to the internet has a Gateway Intel Computer with 63.3 OMB RAM 32 Bit with 67% free memory. I think it needs some updating in general to make it compatible with some of todays applications and programs. I have recorded some cds on my computer using my WMP 11 and they won't play on her WMP 7? I tried to install WMP 11 on her computer from my flash drive and the screen came up that it was not compatible with ME operating system. could not find the download button on the file hippos site that you provided the link to. Do I need to download earlier versions of WMP and build up to one that will be compatible? Since she is not on the internet I will have to transfer all updates via a flash drive or other means. I'm thinking about running the Eusing Free registry cleaner on it to see if that will make it faster and help her programs run better. I haven't looked up the specs yet to see what the max would be for the Gateway. I will also look at the Direct X9c; also new to me. I hope you enjoy watching video on your friends PC Sorry, I guess you meant that if I used the VLC Player that I would not have to do anything else. Sounds like the best solution especially for a dial up connection. Keeping in mind that everything I'm doing I have to download on my computer and then transfer it to her computer via a flash drive since she does not have internet I don't think I can do the sound card update, correct? Win ME comes with Direct X version 7.0 pre-installed. If you install Windows Media Player 9.0, you should alos install KLite Codec Pack. Sorry, I guess you meant that if I used the VLC Player that I would not have to do anything else. I mean if I should go ahead with the Direct X 9c download also. Direct X9c is Direct X version 9c, the latest for Windows ME. It is designed for game programmers to provide direct access to hardware, bypassing Windows.Do I need to download earlier versions of WMP and build up to one that will be compatible? Since she is not on the internet I will have to transfer all updates via a flash drive or other means.
Most media players use Direct X for playing video, thats why you should update Direct X.
What steps do I take to update her computer so we can play these audio and video cds on it? Aunt Na On Windows ME, you can install only upto Windows Media Player 9.
Is it maybe a problem with my codecs and/or her codecs? I could not find a mention of one installed in her properties.
If you know manufacturer and model of sound card or vga card, you can download drivers from their website. I downloaded the VLC Player 0.8.6c and put it on my flash drive. By the way, VLC Player setup is only ONE file something like "vlc-0.8.6c-win32.exe"Direct X 9c fatal error : you must have downloaded the latest version, while Microsoft has stopped support for Windows ME for some time. Funny thing is earlier version is also called Direct X 9c. You should install this old december 2006 version : by Romeo29, 18 July 2008 - PM. The download link on any File Hippo page is at the top right, it says Download This Version.
You can update sound card and vga drivers too, but it would be tricky.
