|| Media Player Control
I am trying to use the media player control (msdxm.ocx) in my vb project but
every time i try to add it from the components menu i get the error:
'C:\winnt\system32\msdxm.ocx can not be loaded'
I have tried downloading various versions of this file and windows media
player but nothing seems to make any difference.
I have also tried regsvr32 to sort it out but that doesnt like it either.
I am running a windows nt4 environment (as part of the corporate network
here) and wondered if you knew or know of anyone who might be able to help me
with resolving this problem.
Try uninstalling all versions of Windows Media Player to get rid of it
Download version 6.4 of Windows Media Player from here:
This will add MSDXM.OCX to your system as well as the codecs to be able to
play multimedia files.
In Visual Basic, browse to the file in the components dialog, don't just
check it. Sometimes it won't work if the wrong case is used e.g. MSDXM.OCX
instead of msdxm.ocx.
I don't see any reason why the above shouldn't work. Are you able to open
Windows Media Player and play files without VB? Are you able to run programs
with MSDXM.OCX that other people have made e.g.:
