Please recommend a download along with the url for a codec pack that is most useful for avi files. I have a file that is an avi, but it will not play. I am using Windows 8 Pro edition on a Dell M4700 laptop workstation.

checkout k-lite... it's free and pretty all inclusive as far as codecs go.

As said K-Llite Codec Pack.
If you just want codecs for play back then basic codec pack will do.

More recommended is the VLC Media Player.

VLC is an excellent movie player. It has its own plugins for playing different movie formats, so it doesn't need any codecs to be installed and is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVD, Audio CD, VCD, and various streaming protocols.

My first reaction when I saw the title was also to suggest VLC.  VLC is an excellent package.  You can also try X-Media Recode (the portable version) and even though the website is in German, the software can be in English.
