MCI Error: There is no driver installed on your system
Windows 2000 doesn't use the win.ini and system.ini files for the multimedia
settings. They are all in the Registry and I don't have a handle on what
they should be or where they are. However, most likely you are missing a
codec. Have you installed Windows Media Player 8.0? It will install some
codecs and you might get lucky. The other question would be, do you have
Real Player or Quick Time installed on the work machines?
