WMA format in Easy CD-DA Extractor?

I would like to rip CDs to .wma on my old Win98 machine. It works with MediaPlayer 7.1 but I would prefer to use Easy CD-DA Extractor. When I open ECDE a warning pops up that the windows media codecs are not installed. I have followed the link and installed the wma 8 codecs, as well as the codecs available on the microsoft site for Win 98. None of those seem to help - is there anything else I can do to use ECDE for .wma on this machine?
