Why can't people just chill out and help rather than be too 'clever'
True that there is documentation but I am sure it is a common error that there is no executable for this.
And, from the OPs POV, the location of the install is important - should be, I guess, in the 32 bit programs (unless the 64 bit version was installed) (it was when I last used this under XP) - since the program does rely on plugins which have to be stored in specific places.
On two PC's I have Avisynth in D:\Avisynth 2.5, which is where I directed the installer to put it.
On another it's in E:\Avisynth 2.6, which is where I directed the installer to put it.
Been working OK for about 12 years now.
plugins by themselves are backed up to a "plugins" folder in an external drive.
The C: drive gets most of the stress in PC operations. What a shame if you lose your C: drive and have to find all those plugins again.
I can't help if it seems comical that most people still expect a damn machine to read their minds.- My sister Ann's brother
Oh i see, it's not an actual program but works through using Text Documents.. clever! Does it only work with AVI files though? I'm trying to open MP4 files, as i want to deinterlace alot of them and maybe edit/join without needing to render it all in a video editing program, but the files don't seem to open.
Looks like a very complex thing to get your head round.

The primary deinterlacer is QTGMC, but you can use the yadif plugin -- the latter ain't as good, but better than your typical editor.
When you open a file in AVisynth it is decoded and uncompressed. The results have to be re-encoded. Avisynth is not an editor.
The file that actually "runs" Avisynth is avisynth.dll.
In 32-bit Windows it's in System32.
In 64-bit Windows the 32-bit version of avisynth.dll is in SYSWOW64.

Maybe try MeGUI to help you become familiar with Avisynth. MeGUI creates scripts for encoding for you. It's easy to modify them if you choose, but you can look at the scripts MeGUI creates to help learn the basics.
Download MeGUI, run the updater, use the File/Open menu to open a video for encoding and post back if you have any questions. MeGUI/Avisynth can open all the common formats.
