"MFPlat.DLL was not found"

I just installed the latest Anki (2.1.40) on my Windows 10 (build 19042.804), and get this error message when running anki.exe:


Anki seems to run fine though regardless. It seems to be related to some media player (which I don’t use anyway).

The sound won’t work. Google suggests that installing Media Feature Pack should fix the error.


Hum Ok. I wonder if this is by design or if the Anki installation package is suppose to included them. I can’t be the only one having a missing MFPlat.DLL.
I have the “Pro” version of Windows, and maybe these DLL’s are not shipped as a default. The “Home” version probably ships them.

I have the Pro version but don’t have this problem.
