How to recover my Indeo software?

by dawillie / September 23, 2004 6:48 AM PDT

I need some help here, please.
When I purchased my XP-Pro it shipped with both Java and Indeo -ligos software.

somewhere along the way I either lost it or incorrectly uninstalled it and now am unable to use it.

I think it is still on the original O/S disc that i used to install XP.

problem is I also deleted all old 'restore' dates as part of the clean up i did after SP-2 was installed.

I would like to re-install the indeo software.

can someone please help with instructions or, in the alternative point me to the thread where this has already been discussed.

Home User XP-Pro-SP-2.

thank you

thanks Mark.
I don't mind paying for it, but believe it is on my XP operating disc and was hoping someone would tell me how to restore just that part of the disc.

Unfortunately, for SP2 the below Q327979 download file won't install.

However, it can be installed for SP1. In SP1 the indeo codec was not included. Probable the download was a gift for some gamers authors that used that codec, including MS itself.

I?ll include the Q327979 download page only for reference because it's not easy to locate it at downloads site.

Q327979 download page.

However, goto the following page and see if it helps you.
