[Resolved] Are half of your video cut-scenes missing?
[Update] The latest windows update fixes what the one from last moth broke. YAY!

It's looking like a recent windows 7 update has messed up video playback on a bunch of games. We're looking into it here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/207650/discussions/1/864973123464339626/#p2

[Edit] So the solution is below, or if you prefer video here's one showing how to fix, given the cautions listed below: http://steamcommunity.com/app/236090/discussions/0/864973919425701732/

Just a headsup, this is a microsoft security patch so do so at your own risk.

Yes it is, but when it messes up several games and programs then I would say it's a poor fix and should be removed untill they sort it out.

Others would argue it's better to leave it installed, but I feel that it's a minor patch and removing should not cause any problems.

Microsoft should test these things before throwing them out into the wild.

I had really hoped that they'd have fixed this by now. I hate being beholden to a patch, and I hate the idea of someone buying AVNT and seeing half of the intro video as black and assuming it's some bug we released with. Anyone know if other games have dealt with this in other ways. I saw them recommending removing that update file as well, but I understand the hesitation.
