Movie Maker - Unable to read divx file

October 2016

Upon loading in a divx under Movie Maker, I'm getting the following error message:

The file F:\movies\ xxx.avi can not be imported because the codec required for reading is not installed on your computer. If you have already downloaded and installed the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then re-import the file.
