This error occurs on systems where the Windows DVD Player is installed, or on systems upgraded from Windows 7 and 8 that included Media Center.

This issue is due to a recent Windows 10 update: Update KB4013429, rolled out last week, causing the vMix Record Settings to become unavailable.


Please note that this is a temporary solution until Microsoft issues a new update on this.

1. Check to ensure your Windows version is affected by click the Start Menu, typing in Winver and pressing enter.
1.1 If the version is: Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.953) AND you see an error message when opening the vMix recording settings proceed to step 2
1.2 Otherwise contact Vmix for further support.

2. Download the following zip file and then extract it into an empty folder: https://www.vmix.com/download/CompPkgSupFix.zip

3. Open the folder and locate the file CompPkgSup.dll then right click it and select Copy

4. Browse to the folder C: Program Files (x86) vMix x64

5. Right click inside this folder and select Paste

6. When prompted to confirm administrator permission, select Continue

7. vMix should now work correctly.
