How to install a Codec in Windows 9x???

Hello. I have a video file that uses a Ligos propietary Codec and i would like to distribute it. I have identified the two .ax files that compose the codec. but i don't know how to install them.

I have seek in the registry for peeks, but there's two keys for each of the files (with a horrible CLASSID). Those CLASSID then appear in the Windows Media Player entries of the registry. I could reproduce this at hand, but i'm sure that the only PC in the world that will take that as valid is mine, and I want my program to be run in other machines as well.

There's an API or anything else to do this???

CODECS (or .ax files) are just regular InProc server DLLs. To install them, copy them to the Windows' System Directory and run 'regsvr32.exe mycodec.ax' or call the 'DllRegisterServer()' entry point.

All Right. I'll try.  If is that, I'll kill myself...
