dxva2.dll

Yo,

I'm getting Windows Media Player crashes when I attempt to sync my Archos MP3 player. I followed instructions online and it seems the problem is dxva2.dll. I've tried options to repair or replace it, and currently I've been told I do not have permission to change my system32 directory. Ignoring the fact that I've done it before, I followed instructions for shit and find I still can't.

I have no fucking clue what's not happening here. Anyone got any tips and/or adivce? Well, besides not mucking with DLL files and the system32 folder?


“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

Just a simple suggestion but is everything up to date? I mean current version?

Put it this way: I already upgraded the supposed culprit before hitting this snag. Since this is a process that deals with installed software and the only one that's got a problem is Windows Media Player, there is no program I know of that is not up to date.

This is why I'm looking for soemthing a little outside-the box.

Go to the task manager and manually stop WMP. Plug in your player and try syncing.

Have to do this with firefox at times when it crashes and will not open until I remove the process in the task manager.

You realize this statement insinuated that I DO know SOMETHING. Stop breaking character.

Turn off UAC and try replacing the .dll. Boot into a cmd window with admin privileged and copy the .dll that way. Boot into safe mode and try replacing the .dll. Reinstall Windows.

Found a program called TakeControl. It allowed me to do what every other attempt to change ownership of the DLL didn't do and saved me a reinstall. Thanks guys.
