i don't think you can reinstall version 8 ? since its part of xp.. try running system file checker or maybe download version 9.

leave your windows xp cd in the cd drive and type the following in the run box

sfc /scannow

I believe that the cure for this is to download a new codec from the divx web site.

I seem to remember a colleague of mine having the same problem and that was how he fixed it.

You'll probably find that the file was saved using divx.

Perhaps somebody else could elaborate on this a bit more as my memory is a bit sketchy.
