Where to get missing .dll ?

Iíve tried playing Atari Arcade Hits & can eventually get all of them to work but it typically takes several tries to get the games to properly load.
Atari Arcade Hits

When I run the main program I get a message that Iím missing the ďvids:IV32 decompressorĒ From doing some searching it appears other people also need this in order to watch movies of videos. This is just one example.
Video not available, cannot find 'vids:iv32' decompressor - Vista Forums

Does anyone here know of a safe site to get a copy of ir32_32.dll, and/or have any experience adding this to the Windows 7 registry?

Hello Mike. You can give this codec pack a try. Cole2k Media | Audio/Video Codecs, Software for Windows 7, Vista, XP It may or may not include the right decompresser. The .dll you referenced is from XP.

Seems to be legitimate. Downloaded without fault directly from the site and scans clear with Avira It should just go in C:/Windows/System
Be careful! Many .dlls from sites like that have been "modded" and can wreak havoc to a system.

If you're going to post alarmist messages like that, then I'll just delete my post.

Hi Mike
That dll should load when you install the software. Did you download it or from a disc, either way where did you obtain the software from?

IMHO That was not alarmist, more a considered warning!
This is from a very reliable source:

DLL Files from DLL Download Sites May be Infected with Viruses

Since DLL download sites are not approved sources for DLL files and often have little if any contact information available, there is no guarantee that the DLL file you just downloaded is free from a virus infection. Assuming you have a good antivirus program, an infected DLL file might be quarantined as you download it but there is certainly no guarantee of that. Take the safe route and simply avoid downloading DLL files from these DLL download sites.
DLL Download Sites Could Host DLL Files That Could Compromise Your Computer's Security

DLL files are like small, specialized programs that can be programmed to perform various actions automatically, even actions that open your computer up to hacking and other kinds of intrusions. DLL files like this do exist. While it's unlikely that you will search for one of these particular DLLs files to download and install, it is a risk you take when you install a DLL file in your system from a DLL download site. Don't risk it - follow the advice in the previous several tips and acquire the DLL from its source, not from a "back alley" DLL dealer!

Mike99, did you do a search for ir32_32.dll ?

I just looked in a Win 7 x64 PC and i see this file in the \Windows\SysWOW64 folder.
I don't have the Atari Arcade Hits, so my guess is this file is from the Windows install.

Then perhaps an sfc /scannow might be helpful

Mitchell, do you think I'd recommend a site without first having had experience with it?
