Did you try downloading this OpenAL zip.file
- After downloading move it to a safe place best to put it in it's own folder
- Unzip the folder from there and Run the file (with full "Administrator" privileges)
- You should be able to discard the Unzipped file once the program runs
If this does not work there is also a Registry edit you can do but this is for experienced operators as it will change the way your computer operates
Sorry I got your message earlier but for some reason the floods in Australian have been slowing down my wireless internet connection *Google is your Friend* (Oh and someone sent me this earlier today so *I just thought I'd share the luv*)
