Xvid & Classfactory cannot supply requested class?

    First of all I am pretty new to this so I hope I am posting the right information.

    For some reason I can't get the avi files with the Xvid codec that I burned to a CD to run from the disc. Files with other, earlier codecs work alright from disc just not Xvid files. But the exact same file that is stored on my hard drive will work.

    The error message that I get from WMP is

    "Classfactory cannot supply requested class"

    and when I try Zoomplayer I get a message stating that it cant find the necessary filters or its a corrupt file.

    I have tried deleting and reinstalling all my codecs as well as deleting and einstalling Nero then doing another test burn to see if that would fix the problem. Still nothing. I'm guessing there's some sort of problem in the burn process but short of reformating or replacing my cd burner, I don't know what to do.

    None of my searches have amounted to anything except that I have seen a few messages on other forum boards having similar problems but with no responses as of yet.

    Has anyone been able to solve this problem? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I have installed the latest codecs using the ACE Mega CoDecs Pack along with the most recent Xvid installer that I could find.

    have I left anything else out?

    for some reason the avi movies encoded with some codecs do not run properly from the CD so just create a new folder and copy the movie to it and play it just to make sure that its ok when you copy from the CD to hard drive
