It really installs the driver to the path where it copys the dhahelper.sys
Can you tell me the value of the path before you altered it? What is your
c:\windows or c:\winnt?. If the later is the case it might be possible that
you used an
old version of dhasetup for the first install and that the new version can't
change the path then.
I'm not sure if the newest version was included in 040408 but it is in the
You might need to run dhasetup remove and then reboot first.

The missing mtrr support is only a warning. Mtrr setup is done different on
windows if it works at all.
I'm not sure here but it is not reuqired for the driver to work.

It would be nice if you could compile mplayer
with --enable-debug=3 --enable-vidix --enable-static and make the gdb
The procedure is described in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html. Otherwise I have
no idea what might be wrong except for
the fact that there is to much code written by me involved...
