Can't get lesson 35 to play

Recommended Posts

I searched the boards and I didn''t find any errors like this. I can''t run the program at all. What happens is: it starts up, and then displays a message box saying "Failed to Open the AVI Frame" and then it just crashs when I hit ok. I downloaded bot the original code and the .net port for it, both compile and link just fine, but both the .exe''s that come in the zip and the ones I build all give the same error. Does anyone have a suggestion about what could be wrong? I''m running win2k3 server, visual studio.net 2003, and everything is completely updated.

Hmm, it looks as though the call to:

AVIStreamGetFrameOpen(pavi, NULL);

is returning NULL.

A quick look at MSDN says that this is because a suitable decompressor is unavailable.

See Here

I''m not sure where you''d get a decompressor from. Sorry I can''t be of more help.
