I'm using WinXP SP-1 and when i try to play a particular movie i get this message: "ClassFactory Cannot Supply Requested Class" and doesn't play the movie.
All other movies i try to play (DivX or mpg) play perfectly.
Curious thing is that i have a dual boot system WinXP/Win98 and under Win98 it plays well.
I have the same codecs installed under both systems: DivX 5.0.2, Xvid, AC3 codec etc.
What do you think this could be? How can i solve it?
Thanx a lot.

was searching for this problem but i didn't find any answers.
i have the same problem as Liru and i'm running winxp pro. how can we fix this?
i also played it on divx player. media player is a bit more prone to this classfactory problem
I am also getting this `class reqest` message, on some mpg`s.
And i`ve only started getting them in the last few weeks, i still run win98, so it`s not an xp problem.
You have to install "ACE Mega codecs pack". It is the best combo-codec and it works.
I also seem to be receiving this same error just recently when trying to playback some .AVI files that I downloaded. I have never had this problem before when playing any .AVI file.
I used GSPOT to check the file and it says I have like 5 compatible codecs installed.
I installed the ACE MEGA CODECS PACK as you suggested .....lancelot... Even after installing the codec pack it still gave the same error.....??????
Any advice on my problem????
