I'm trying to find a codec that will play mp4 files in Vista Media Centre. Trying to install Cole2K (advanced install) is causing problems eg Setup.exe: Entry Point not found - "The procedure entry point VerQueryValueA could not be located in the dynamic link library VERSION.dll". This is sounding suspiciously like a Vista OS identity problem.
Vista then tells me it is going to close the program because it has stopped working but pressing "Continue" brings up the "Choose Components" screen from Cole2K where I can select Cyberlink DTV Generic, pressing "next" brings up the ffdshow Video Settings; pressing "next" brings up the ffdshow Audio Settings.
Pressing "Install" installs about 60% before I get a repeat of the entry point problem and same error message. Pressing "OK" tells me Cole2K has stopped working again and pressing "Close Program" brings up the Installation Complete screen and that Cole2k has finished????
In Control Panel I now have 2 additonal icons for ON2 (6 & 7) but I cannot play mp4 and I'm unsure the codec has installed correctly?

Thanks for detailing the errors you're getting.
The problems you are seeing are caused by a mixture of things:
The version.dll error is caused by the way Vista identifies itself, the version.dll is only actually part of the pack in order to stop Windows 95,98,ME users from installing the package (In the case of an error the package itself will normally continue).
Are you using the 64bit version of Vista? The other error sounds like it could be halting the install of ffdshow.
