Problem: The error occurs if the AVI-filetype is no longer, or incorrectly
specified in your registry.
There can be two causes for this:
1. You removed it by removing the file extension type in the windows
When you do that the system will not only remove the ability to double-click
an AVI file to view it; it will also remove the registry entries for AVIFILE
in your registry, thus the ability to see AVI-video files.
(view > options > filetypes > remove)
2. An application removed it. You installed a program that registered
itself as the default opener for AVI files. The error can occur after installing
Activemovie. This program 'takes over' the 'standard' Mediaplayer, but
what's even worse; it changes important keys in your registry. The result:
Your system won't recognise AVI-video files anymore and you'll get the
Download the AVIFILE.REG
from this web site and execute (open) it. Executing (running) this file will automatically
insert all the keys for you.
(This patch works under Windows'95, Windows'95r2 and Windows'98,
not tested in NT).
