  • Here is the workaround fix this problem:

    1. Uninstall WinFx Beta 2.
    2. Uninstall the WIC redistributable package by running: %windir%\$NtUninstallWIC$\spuninst\spuninst.exe
    3. Reinstall WinFx Beta 2.
    4. (optional) Verify that WindowsCodecs.dll and WindowsCodecsExt.dll are in %windir%\system32.
