I recently tried a system restore after loading poor software, and it would not do so. I received the following message:

"A device attached to the system is not functioning (0x8007001F)"

Googling the problem, led me to Microsoft's Help site and the following information:

"When you are using Windows Media Encoder with certain video capture cards, you may receive the following error:
A device attached to the system is not functioning (0x8007001F)
This behavior occurs with video capture cards that work with video port extensions (VPE) and support video port pins instead of preview pins.
You may be able to work around this behavior by first launching AmCap, which is a tool from the DirectX SDK, and then starting Windows Media Encoder while AmCap is still running"

Question: How do I do that? How do I launch AmCap?
