Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 RC only for games, i need help !

Installing Windows 7 RC only for games, i need help !

HI all, i have registered on this site now, but im visitor from January 2009.
I have various problems on windows 7 but, i like this for games. Same performance of XP x64 on DX9 and more speed than Vista on DX10.
But, i have much problems:
- After instaled Klite Codec Pack is impossible to use ConvertXtoDVD to use avi filme and separeted .sub file to create DVD, and , all DVDs is not playable on Windows Media 12 or Media Center. I have instaled Klite last version and FULL INSTALATION. Anybody have an solution ?
- I have found an solution for media encoding to convert to DVD, i have instaled XP 32 on Virtual PC, all works fine, but, the encoding is very SLOW, because this is an Virtual Machine.
- IF is impossible to install codecks packs, like Klite or Seven Codec Pack is posible to install Seven, drivers and shutdown Microsoft Defender and leave this computer only for games ? Installing only DX last version, Microsoft 2005 and 2008 C++ Redist and overclock tool like EVGA.

My idea, Seven for games, without any programs on background, and XP on VM for antivirus, Office and others programas.
But im convert much movied, im download avi and SUB convert on XonvertXtoDVD and play on My TV.
I have experienced problems on Vista like this, instaled Klite on FULL options and i need download PowerDVD to play DVD, and reinstaled Windows Media 11 codecs ( from original archive ) to play Mpeg on Media 11.

Any idea ? Solutions ? Please...

My english is horrible, i know, because im Brazillian and have much yers i have stoped stude of english.

Thx.
Bye

Hi, i use convertx on win 7 7100 64bit with no problems at all, i didn't install ANY codec packs and have coverted/burnt films with sub files for my stand alone dvd player.

Maybe uninstall the codec packs and try the latest version of convertx which is 3.5.2 i belive.

OK, but, without the pack the Media Player or Media Center can handle the AVI filme with SUB ? i think no.
The ConvertXtoDVD need codecs like rmvb lite to convert rmvb to DVD, is not needed an codec pack to convert AVI with SUB to DVD ?
If no, and Media Player and Media Center play games with sub the codecs pack is the fux software realesed for Win7.

Thx for help man, but, have other problem, unistall an codec pack crash the windows and they dont play NOTHIG any more, the solution ? Format C:.

But you could also try Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs as it's the best & most stable with Windows 7

Windows Media Player 12 & Windows Media Centre in Se7en don't natively run subs without the aid of external codecs.

I know this codec pack, i have say that on my thread, Seven Codec Pack.
But, with this pack, the ConvertXtoDVD dont leave me to use subs on the convertion to DVD, you have experienced this problem ?
And, on Media Center and Media Player 12 is impossible to play DVD convert and originals, i need to install PowerDVd to play media.

its only my problem ?

Is realy necessary an codec pack to play AVI movies and use convertXtoDVD to ADD SUBS on movie ?

I only want see the movie on PC without SUB, and play this on computer with subs integrated , after DVD convertion..
Bye.

Another one here for these particular codecs. They also have a x64 component pack so this might be what your looking for.

I have no problems, i've used ConvertX & WinAvi & have played on WMP12 and MCE with no issues.

Do you have a lot of programs installed yet? You might want to clean install Se7en and try the programs without any codec pack installed. It could be that a setting somewhere is not correct but there are so many it would take forever to find which 1 might be causing the issue.

Just a thought
