MFplaf.dll Missing Fix

If you have installed the Ultimate N versions of the windows 7 OS you are very likely to get this error and the solution to this is as follows

The error is due to the missing Media Foundation Platform which is a dll that does not come bundled with the Ultimate N versions . N versions of the OS are European versions that does not have the media player and related stuff bundled as a result of the European councils measure to do so .Microsoft has also paid around 50 M Euros as fine for the same says some sources.

If you are installing the Microsoft Kinect SDK or the Intel Perceptual SDK you will find this Error .This is just a simple scenario that i have quoted.

Hope you solved your issue and enjoyed reading.
