How to remove Nero Codecs

Post by StormMagi » Sun, 8. Mar 09, 21:31

I take no credit in coming up with this but since this is a common issue with X3TC I thought I would share the wealth 8)

Everthing was taken from http://wohlgemuth.spaces.live.com/blog/ ... 1195.entry

I have Vista x64 and as such I cannot test them for 32 bit or XP although I think they would work with just a slight or no modification (depending on os type).

Create two command (similar to .bat files make a new txt file, change extension to .cmd and right click and select edit) files for uninstalling and reinstalling the codecs so you can do this at will:

nero_uninstall_codecs.cmd:

Code: Select all

The URL will not work - due to the exclamation marks within it.

Yeah I figured that was why so people will just have to copy paste the whole thing. I do hope it is useful in solving the problems people have though.

I've fixed the link for you - replaced the ! with %21.

Much appreciated, I will remember that trick for the future.

This seems to have done the trick for me in terms of having Nero and X3TC at the same time :)

That's good news. Thanks for the information, too! :)

FYI - the explanation of what I did: 21 is the hexadecimal ascii code for !. As far as I'm aware, you can use %x where x is the hexadecimal ascii code for any character as a part of a URL. I've most often seen it used where the URL has a space in it (code for that being %20.)

I figured as much. To change the code for a 32bit OS I am assuming (since I cannot test this right now) you simply change the ProgramFiles(x86) to ProgramFiles in the code.
