Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Hi everyone,

I've been unable to find the old Windows Media Audio SDK.

https://web.archive.org/web/19990508050 ... /download/

On that page, there is a link that says:
"Register to download Windows Media Audio SDK - Intel"

If anyone has this, could they upload it to the BA FTP? I would really appreciate it.

Thanks!

The url you linked above wasn't the full SDK, it was the download for WMAudSDKRedist.exe, although a beta of it, the one I linked is the full SDK Final with the WMAudSDKRedist.exe inside of the package.
Download Here..!

This is great, thank you!

But, There was a Windows Media Audio SDK that was released prior to the one you so generously uploaded.

Microsoft released version 1 of their Windows Media Audio codec in April of 1999. The SDK you linked is for version 2 (released summer of 1999).

Does anyone have the SDK that was written for version 1 of the Windows Media Audio codec referenced in the archived Microsoft page in my first post?

PS - Here is the WMAudioRedist.exe for Windows Media Audio version 1:

Thanks!

Are you sure the download I supplied isn't version 1 final, there's no mention within it of being version 2, the one you liked above is listed as a beta.
Edit: I didn't even realize there was a version 2.0..

EDIT_2:

Nope, you might be right, just opened them both & found this.

Your download:

There are 2 reasons I am certain:

1) If we look inside WMAudioRedist.exe in your leak, we see msaud32.acm with the following characteristics:
- Size: 292,944 bytes
- Date: 1999-08-09

2) In the WMAudioRedist.exe on the CDex page, the msaud32.acm has the following:
- Size: 194,848 bytes
- Date: 1999-04-30

When I try replacing the msaud32.acm version in your leak with the older version, the wavtowma program in the SDK fails. It only understands the newer, version 2, of the msaud32.acm.

I have an old version of Windows Media On-Demand Producer and a specific version of NetShow Encoder which use version 1 instead of version 2 of the codec.

This is something I've been researching for a very long time. :)

I hope someone has the SDK for version 1.

Thanks.

Yeah I edited my post as you just posted this last response..
I opened one of the codecs & posted above response.

Had another look through my own archives & found "Windows Media Services MediaTools (BETA VERSION)" which has the same codecs in it as your download, & a later beta of it for wmp7.

There's a chance I have it, finding the backup media it's in is the trick, not played around with this for some time & buried most of it a few years ago, I'll have a quick browse later tonight..

Sorry about that--I saw your edits after I finished typing my reply.

Another thought: Perhaps the SDK is bundled in one of the many MSDN discs on the FTP...

Hopefully someone finds the SDK.

Thanks!
