Connecting to remote DirectShow Graph in 64 bit Windows 7

Hi folks,

Ever since I upgraded to 64 bit Windows 7, I have not been able to connect to remote 32 bit DirectShow graphs from GraphEdit :-( . Well... not any more :-) . Thanks to one of my customers, who unveiled the secret :-) . It turns out there is a DLL provided in the Microsoft SDK that is not registered during the install of the SDK.
To enable the functionality copy the 32 bit version of the proppage.dll from the SDK (in the 7.1 version of the SDK in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin ) to the Windows\SysWOW64 directory.
Then run the:
regsvr32.exe proppage.dll

after that you will be able to connect to the registered DirectShow graphs from GraphEdit.

Does anyone know how to extract subtitles from a DivX movie (XSUB subtitles) ... I tried to like the GraphEdit (DivX 7 + filter) => not exporting anything, DivX Converter, Xilisoft, ProjectX, DVDFab, ConvertXtoDVD "sees" subtitle but does not extract ... It is visible for VLC, KMPlayer course DivXPlayer and probably longer ... of editors subtitles: SubtitleEdit manages to read but using OCR ... an hour and a half movie subtitles you realize how much work is ... Windows7x64 use. So does anyone know what else can be extracted?
