Codec missing after update

Hello,

After installing Nero 6 Ultra Edition (Retail Boxed)
(followed by Downloading and installing Updates)
( no errors reported during installation )

Updates installed:
nero6606.exe
NeroMIX14027.exe
NVE30127.exe

Some codecs are showing up as corrupted (file missing) in the Video file utility
“GSpot v2.52 beta 1” http://gspot.headbands.com
Looking at:
MainMenu ->System ->List of codecs and other filters

Its quite possible, I suppose, that these TWO problem entries are no longer needed.
It may be a simple matter of hunting the registry for them and deleting the entries.
One actually “seems” to be a duplicate (Nero Digital AVC Video Enc) but, now with a
new ID. Then come to think of it …maybe just the PATH to them has changed.

( * = problem ) Here is a listing of Codecs with ‘Nero’ in their Name (as shown by GSpot 2.52 beta 1)

@ Kronk
Welcome:). I can’t really explain why nero did this, and it sounds a bit buggy…maybe why updating nero in some cases causes more problems than it fixes.
However, you might want to uninstall nero using ALL the nero clean tools including the registry checker, etc. then reinstall nero again.

The reason why Gspot shows the file as missing is becuase the Nero Ph~2 which is Nero Photohshow does not support Nero Digital that is why it shows the file as missing but it is installed becuase I have created already a few AVC/H.264 Nero Digital files.

I have the “Nero Digital AVC Video Enc” {426F6A6F-FEF8-…} missing, and another one with the same name but id {426F6A6F-9888-…} points to NeNDVid.ax

Nero Recode (v2.2.6.17) fails to create an AVC, here is part of the log file:

09:46:22 File burn_ndigital.cpp, Line 1192
NeroDigital: building graph

09:46:22 File burn_ndigital.cpp, Line 1311
failed to create NeroDigital Video Encoder: 0x80004003

09:46:22 File burn_ndigital.cpp, Line 638
Failed to create the Nero Digital Video encoder filter.

Here’s a quickie webpage I put together made to answer this question.
