I update Directx and possibly the video card drivers. I've never had luck replacing the noted DLL.
i have ''media player classic'' and it used to work on my computer (windows 98) but i had to reformat my drive and now it wont work. when i try to open it it says ''the MPLAYERC.EXE file is linked to missing export DDRAW.DLL: DirectDrawCreateEx.'' i tried downloading the ddraw.dll file and replacing it but when i try to it says i cant overwrite the existing one because its in use...any suggestions?
