Activemovie help needed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to view some older tutorials that are in MSFT ActiveMovie format with an SCM extension. They come on a CD that tries to install the program; I can watch them at home fine. However, at work the system does not recognize them, but it thinks that ActiveMovie is already installed. That is, when an admin clicks on amovie.exe, which is the installer, it says a newer version is already installed. As I've said, however, the computer does not recognize the extension. I've tried clicking on c:\windows\system32\actmovie.exe, thinking that might be the actual app, but it does nothing.

     

    Any help on this? Is there a way to get Media Player to play these files?

     

    Thanks.
