unicows

You need the MS Unicode Layer for Windows installed.

Many modern apps require or include it, so a good chunk of Win9x systems already have it.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Do you have a

unicows.dll ?
If you do, try putting it in the /PortableApps/VLCPortable/App/vlc folder.
Maybe it'll work then.

you have to put Unicows.dll in system32

had that problem to

you can take any unicows.dll do a search on C:

personaly I copied windows Media player 9 's unicows.dll

it works fine

you just have to put it in C:\Windows\system32\

after both the real vlc and this portable version should work

you don't have to put this file in the portable vlc folder because lots of computer have it

if you have any more problems visite vlc official forum
