AVBlocks will not load if Wmvcore.dll is not present on user’s system

Update: This issue has been fixed as of version 1.6.

Wmvcore.dll is standard on all editions of Windows Vista and Windows 7 with the exception of the ā€œNā€ editions. The ā€œNā€ editions are distributed in Europe and do not include Windows Media Player and its related technologies.

The following versions of Windows Vista or Window 7 are affected:

  • Windows 7 Starter N
  • Windows 7 Home Premium N
  • Windows 7 Professional N
  • Windows 7 Ultimate N
  • Windows Vista Home Basic N
  • Windows Vista Business N
  • Windows Vista Home Basic KN
  • Windows Vista Business KN

AVBlocks depends on the following Wmvcore.dll functions for ASF muxing and demuxing:

  • WMCreateProfileManager
  • WMCreateSyncReader
  • WMCreateWriter

We are fixing this issue by changing the code to load Wmvcore.dll on-demand. This fix will be available in AVBlocks 1.6.
