I downloaded the C:\Windows\SysWOW64codec zip file form this site ... I have W7 64 bit PC
Carried out install instr .. (right click on inf file)
It has installled Cedocida.dll in the C:\windows\sysWow64 folder.
As VD (& avisynth) are 32bit do I also need to install a 32bit version ... if so as it has not installed it do I just add the Cedocida.dll from the zip main folder (not x64 sub folder) to C:\Windows\System32
Is there a simple way to check both 32 & 64 bit versions are installed & working OK ?

Thread: Codec install
32 bit programs require 32 bit codecs. 64 bit programs require 64 bit codecs. The two systems cannot see each other. Cedocida.dll in SysWow64 it's the 32 bit version. Cedocida.dll in System32 is the 64 bit version.
To check, start 32 bit VirtualDub and select Video -> Compression... and verify Cedocida is in the list of codecs. Do the same with 64 bit VirtualDub.
Cedocida.dll in SysWow64 it's the 32 bit version. Cedocida.dll in System32 is the 64 bit version.
Well shows I get confused, I assumed that SysWow64 was for 64bit and System32 for 32bit ........ and it's the other way round ?
Anyway I looked in VD 32bit and it shows 3 variants, so must be installed.
Thank you for the education .... only Microsoft could make things that unclear
