Troubleshooting problems with a WMV

Last Modified: 2013-11-13
I'm trying to edit a wmv file created by gotoMeeting.com and am bumping up against what I assume are mangled codecs at some point or other. The movie plays fine in media player but every editor i've tried to work with blows up one way or another. I can load to both Virtual Dub and MS's Movie Maker but saving/outputting will lock them both up.

GSpot tells me Render OK:

SRC A DMO:WMV Screen decoder DMO B Video Renderer
SCR A DMO WMAudio Decoder DMO B AC3Filter C Default DirectSound Device.

When I ask GSpot about Filter loaded on my system I has these lines flagged as error:
ACM      Base            msacm.avis            ** Missing file: ffvfw.dll
REND      Video      {2206C458-1E6B-4D65-B0F7-A74EEE8496B6}      {2206C458-1E6B-4D65-B0F7-A74EEE8496B6}      0x00800000      ** File Missing:
