turned off DirectX Acceleration.
Codecs may have worked on XP but windows 7 no chance -I have full Administrator account - full access to take permission of files and folders - UAC off etc etc - but gets 90% through install (even right clicked and run as Administrator) then it comes up can't write to reg key ....media/Player - and then uninstalls itself.

even been into registry to the required key and cannot access it to edit or even view

Not had a delve yet in the mysteries of '7' but the M/S help site should be able to point in the right direction - perhaps a patch is due.
