TBG Codec Pack - The Buyer's Guide Codec Pack


A very old project of mine that started more than 11 years on the swedish http://www.tbg.nu/ (The Buyer's Guide) forum. I grew tired of having to installing codecs and doing customizations so I created a batch files along with a some registry hacks which because I guess quite popular back in the day. Some (MaLi) even enhanced it by wrapping a NSIS installed around it or just gave some pointers as I did manage to include some bugs. :-)

Somewhere around 2011 I stopped providing public packages due to several reasons but mainly because the lack of feedback as I had few platforms to do testing on.

Anyhow, here's a new version that's much simpler to maintain and my first real go at Powershell scripting. It does try to determine and install required (Internet connection required) run-time libraries by itself but I'm going to list those anyway in case something goes wrong.


  • 64-bit OS
  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or greater
  • Powershell 4.0 or greater
  • .NET firmware 4.5 or greater
  • Microsoft Visual C++ Run-Time 2010
  • Microsoft Visual C++ Run-Time 2012
  • Microsoft Visual C++ Run-Time 2013
