Default My comp doesn't recognize DivX 5 when encoding vob's to avi

i've been reading the guide about guardian knot / divx5 here:

well, it kinda works - but i get gigantic avi files that obviously aren't encoded with divx5 (they're HUGE and very slow)

for example, in DVD2AVI, i load a movie (a small 1 minute vob test file), and try 'save to avi'. it asks me what compression method to use, but there are none to select! here's a screenshot of the box:

that's in Danish - the header says 'Videocompression', the title for the drop-down box says 'Compressing program', and there are no options - it just says 'No compression' (the selected one).

I have Nimo's divx 5 installed (otherwise several of my divx5 avi's won't run). i have also tried divx 5.02, and the pro version, and 3.11 alpha to no avail.

any tips? should i edit something in my system files or registry or perhaps try again with divx5.02 pro?

thanks in advance

PS: GK also gives me this error message when encoding:

00:47:55: Started DivX5-First Pass: D:\jenna\jennatest.avs

(i wonder why it says it can't open the log file when it's just being written btw).
