[PD] Pd-extended and Windows Media Player Classic issue

I've made a small VJ utility with Gem and sent it to a friend, who has
then installed Pd-extended on his Windows XP machine
(Pd-0.39.2-extended-RC1-windowsxp-i386.exe). After doing that, he has
problems with Windows Media Player Classic, that he uses with DivX,
Xvid, RealAlternative and QuicktimeAlternative codecs.

My guess is, that Pd-extended installs dll files that overwrite the
previously installed codecs. Is this a known issue/bug and can he safely
install the old codecs again?

I'm guessing that, because Gem cannot read any movie file, and that
seems to be the same problem with WMPC now.
