avcodec-52.dll error

[Post New]by DeeJays10 on Mar 5, 10 7:52 PM
I haven't played this in a while and when I tried tonight it gave me this error:
Cannnot find import; DLL may be missing, corrupt, or wrong version File "avcodec-52.dll", error 998

I do have that in the flolder and the date it was modified was 01/11/09 which is after all the fixes I have read about.

Can anyone help me out here, am I unaware of something?

I'm experiencing the same problem. I have Windows 7 Professional ... what is your OS?

Sorry, just noticed this was an old topic. :/

Hey orchidna,

In case you haven't seen my response in the tech thread yet, please try re-installing the game after temporarily turning off/disabling any antivirus programs on your system. Here's a great help article with those steps:
