Microphone not working. dpvsetup.exe error
Posted on 2003-10-29
I have Win XP Pro.
My microphone doesn't work. No sound is recorded.
When I run the Hardware Test on Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Voice
after running thru it, it comes up with an error saying:
An error occured during DirectPlay Voice Setup.
The error code is 0x80004005
and when I press OK to that, another one says:
Windows cannot execute Dpvsetup.exe, use Add/Remove Programs control panel to install.
After searching the MS Knowledge Database, it says to slide the Hardware Accelaration slider to the right and retry. I did that and still got nowhere.
I even installed Directx 9.0b to see if that would help, alas no joy.
Last measure was to reinstall XP Pro over the old one (maybe it would reinstall some critical file), This didn't work either.
I'm out of options. What do i do to repair this dpvsetup.exe file and/or get my microphone working?
Appreciate any help
