"IEEE float" codec - how to add

Once I could use Windows Media Player to play all .wav files, but now some of the .wav files give the message Class not registered. Another program says Im missing codec  IEEE float. 

A codec reader on one of the unreadable .wav files says    0x0003 (IEEE FLOAT)  is not installed.

What file is needed, where is it found, and how is it installed?

My O/S is Windows 98.

DC-DSP Filter is a Microsoft DirectShow 9 Audio Filter which is able to Process (decoded) 8/16/24/32 Bit Integer PCM and 32 Bit IEEE Float Audio Data. It works on every Win32 Platform (except NT) with DirectX 9 or above installed.

The DirectX 9 Web Installer can be found here:

Installing DC-DSP Filter does not install the IEEE float codec.  I'd tried that before.

It may simply and possibly be a corrupted WAV file.

Do you know what version of DirectX you have? You can download Microsoft's DirectX Control Panel here:

Put the directx.cpl file in your system32 folder, then open up the control panel in Windows to see/use it.

The wav files are not corrupted.  They work in other software.

I'd reinstalled directX 9 already, didn't fix problem.
Microsoft's codec package is for XP and up.

Trying Cole2K will have to wait until this weekend because I'll have to burn it
to a CD to use on the affected computer which is not connected to the Internet.
