Windows 7: Windows Experience Index won't finish.

Windows Experience Index won't finish.

I know that the Windows Experience Index doesn't matter but I just upgraded to a HD7850 and want to see what I score. The error is WinSAT.exe - Bad Image something to do with wmvencod.dll. I did get the file off my windows dvd disc but I couldn't put it in the system32 folder. I have Windows 7 64bit

Welcome to Seven Forums SirErik. First I would try re-registering the dll

Start> In search box type cmd.exe> Right click on cmd.exe in results above and choose Run as administrator> In command prompt type

regsvr32 wmvdecod.dll


If no help, try running the System File Checker. See if it will correct this error.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If no help. I have attached the wmvdecod.dll from both the System32 folder, and the SysWOW64 folder. The System32 is named and the SysWOW64 is named

Make sure to backup the originals just in case you want to restore them.

If you can't replace the files, let us know what error you get when you try. A Guy

I fix it, and that is not the file I need. I went into my windows 7 disc with 7-zip and got the file I needed.

Thank you for helping
