Default Can't Play AVI movie - Please Help

I tried searching through the threads for a similar problem but couldn't find any so here goes. I have an AVI movie I'm trying to watch. I have the DivX 3.11 installed. When WMP opens up, it first tries to download the WM MPEG4 codec, but then I get this error message: "A decompressor was downloaded for this file, but it didn't work. You may need to restart your player or browser." It then plays the audio but no video. I tried downloading the new divX4 codec and it still didn't work. I tried playing it with the Global DivX player and didn't work. I tried installing the Playa but got this error message: "The procedure entry point DirectDrawCreateEx could not be located in the dynamic link library DDRAW.dll"
I'm running WinNT with WMP 6.4.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

Download the codec packages in the software session. There are quite a few codecs people used. You can check which codec is used by check it using the hexviewer inside virtualDub,

hope this help
