I have just tried to install the MM Codec Pack (Tools > Extensions... > Add... > MM_Codec_Pack_22.214.171.124.mmip > open) for all users (checkbox unchecked) when I got the error message
Code: Select all
"MM codec pack was not installed" OK
At this point a feature request. Would it be possible to show another, more saying error message like for example "MM codec pack was not installed, please start MM with admin rights and try again"? I think the existing error message could be confusing to less advanced users, when MMW just tells that the codec pack was not installed, without giving any reason why it did not work.
Next, after I clicked OK, i closed the extensions dialog and reopened it again (Tools > Extensions...). To my confusion, the codec pack appeared to be installed properly for all users . To test the installation of the codec pack I tried to set up a conversion rule for my portable (mp4 video h264 which needs the codec pack) and got an error "codec missing". So I concluded that the codec pack is errorneously shown in the extensions dialog but not installed "physically".
What is your opinion about that?
