Try.. Open Windows Media Player. Click on TOOLS/OPTIONS, now select FILE TYPES click SELECT ALL and APPLY.

Try to play the file again. See what happens.

Have you tried connecting to the web, start WMP, go to tools/options and on the "player" tab place a check in the "Download Codecs Automatically" box, the whilst still connected try to play the avi file, and WMP should search and download the required codec.
