Media Foundation presence RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am searching for a resource (a registry key or value, a file presence in the system) to test for Media Foundation presence .

    Microsoft sells N and KN Windows versions; Media Foundation components aren't installed on these platform but could be set up later. That's why I need a simple, stable and reliable way to assert Media Foundation presence.

    Thanks for your time,

    Sébastien Mouren

  • One way to do this would be to call LoadLibrary for mf.dll or whatever MF binaries to which you may be linking.  If it succeeds, then you know you have the binaries you need.
