Installing DNxHD on Win XP Home edition

I downloaded DNxHD from here:

to be able to export the timeline to FCP.

The install process said it was going to install in c:\porgram files\avid but I don't see the avid folder being created. I wonder if this has to do with my having WinXP Home edition (the download notes say it's supposed to work on Win XP Professional).

Has anyone gotten it to install successfully on WinXP Home?

Right-click on the EXE file and "Run as Administrator." See if that helps.

Still doesn't work...

I just searched for all avid* files on my hard disk and saw that there are some associated with QT Components (they sit under c:\program files\QuickTime\QTComponents) - avidAV1XCodec.qtx etc...but these were installed last year (as part of QT 7.6.2 install) and should be different codecs, right?

Go to the MOV render templates in Vegas and see if the Avid codecs show up in Custom->Video->Video Format. If they do, you are in business. Should be seven Avid codecs total.

I see the following under mov templates:
Default Template (uncompressed)
28.8 Kbps Audio
56kbps Video
100 Kbps Video
256 Kbps Video
512 Kbps Video
1Mbps Video
3Mbps Video

Are these the Avid codes?

No, those are templates. Once again,

Custom->Video->Video Format

What that means is:

1) Click on the Custom tab.
2) Click on the Video tab.
3) Click on the Video Format tab.

If the Avid codecs are there, they will appear in the drop-down list.

I click on Save As, select (QT 7 mov) --> Custom. I'm on the video tab. I don't see a video format tab. What are the avid codecs called... avid* something?

Well, if you have Vegas Professional, the Video Format button is right there on the Custom->Video dialog.

I have VP9.

Here's what I get:

There is a format text box but it just provides more verbose info about the format selected. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place?

The Video Format button is plain as day in your picture!!
