        You didn’t say what OS you use. If it’s Windows 7 run the following at a command prompt (or use Windows key+R):

        regsvr32 /u “C:Program Files (x86)Common FilesAheadLibMediaLibraryNSE.dll”

        all on one line. If you’re using XP, use:

        regsvr32 /u “C:Program FilesCommon FilesAheadLibMediaLibraryNSE.dll”

        I know it works for Win XP, have done it each time I’ve had to re-install Nero.
