Hawkeye DVR Backup ViewerHawkeye DVR Backup Viewer ›  Missing xvidcore.dll error

0 votes

I need to review some video footage. I installed the software on both Windows 10 and Windows 7, but I get the following error: "Program can't start because xvidcore.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem". I have reinstalled, repaired, removed and reinstalled the tool, but I get the same result. Please, advise.

First off, I can't guarantee that this will work as Hawkeye DVD Backup Viewer is an old tool designed to work on 32-bits PCs and not on newer 64-bit operating systems.

However, the simplest solution that you could try is to go to this website: scroll down to where you see the two versions of xvidcore.dll (not the DLL files client, the actual files) and download one of them. Next, copy the .dll file that you downloaded and paste it once in Windows\System and again in the application's folder. If this didn't fix your problem do the same thing with the other version of the file from the web page.

If you still can't get the application to run, you might need to set up a virtual machine, install Windows XP on it and run the tool through that VM.
