I’m forever carrying a torch for XP, 😀 but I’m using Windows 7. The main issue was that it was taking a really long time for my laptop to boot up. I have the K-Lite pack installed, and every time I updated it, I’d get a message that VP6 was unstable and I should uninstall it. I don’t know if it was because VP6 doesn’t get along with K-Lite, or if it just didn’t install correctly to begin with (unfortunately it didn’t occur to me to take a screenshot or anything… face-palm!) but uninstalling it fixed the problem. It got me wondering- especially because I’m so late to the party- if other machinima directors might prefer other codecs, anyway.
