VLC vo3+ Ogg Vorbis No Audio in .AVI and Media Player Classic Fix/Workaround in Windows 7 x64

Tips: Windows-world
I'm running Windows 7 x64 and couldn't play the sound in an .avi video file in the venerable VLC media player in the "vo3+" format. I downloaded Media Player Classic Home Cinema and see if it would work with that and got a similar problem, and the diagnostics screen that comes up shows:

majortype: MEDIATYPE_Video"73647561-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71" subtype: Unknown GUID Name "00006771-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71"
formattype: "05589F81-C356-11CE-BF01-00AA0055595A"

After doing some research it seemed that I needed the OGG Vorbis ACM codec. So I downloaded it and right clicked on the file "vorbisacm.inf" and picked install but still same problem with Windows.

It turns out that in 64bit Windows you have to do a bit more to get the OGG Vorbis ACM installed correctly:

1)unzip/unrar the Ogg Vorbis codec compressed package into somewhere like "c:\ogg_vorbis"
2)Run cmd.exe with administrator rights. Find "cmd.exe" and then right-click on it and select "Run as administrator".
3)in the CMD window, type "cd %windir%\SysWOW64" and hit ENTER
4)type "rundll32 setupapi.dll,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 0 C:\ogg_vorbis\vorbisacm.inf" and hit ENTER

Voila- the file will now play with sound under Media Player Classic. Unfortunately I tried VLC and it still showed the vo3+ error:

No suitable decoder module:
VLC does not support the audio or video format "vo3+". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.

^^Apparently.

Help?

I tried this but am receiving the following error message:

    • *

Copy Error

Setup cannot copy the file vorbis.acm.

Ensure that the location below is correct, or change it and insert 'Ogg Vorbis Codec Install Disk' in the drive you specify.

Copy files from C:ogg_vorbis Browse

    • *

Just fyi, I created a folder ogg_vorbis in the C: drive and unzipped the Ogg Vorbis ACM codec pack into it. So I'm not sure what the problem is... Can someone please help me?

I'm using Windows 10 btw.
