AVIFileOpen() fails in Win2000


My application calls AVIFileOpen() and works great in Win 95/98/NT 4.0

However, I get an error returned in Win2000: 0x800401F0

I have tried looking this up, but it does not seem to be obvious.

Thanks,

Don

The error 0x800401F0 means CoInitialize has not been called.

Thanks, I will give this a try.

Why does it work in Win9x and NT 4.0 successfully without the CoInitialize() ?

No idea.

Further, if I perform the CoInitialize(), the program completely exits when I call AVIFileOpen() in Win2000.  (Unfortunately I do not have VC++ installed in Win2000) to check this.

That's weird. Maybe you need to install Visual C++ to debug it.
