    I have Windows 7 Home Basic (64-bit) on my laptop and have tried to play an APE-file in latest 64-bit version of Media Player Classic Homecinema, which is said to the built-in support for APE-format, however the file doesn't start playing. I know the file is not corrupted because other people can play it on their computers.

    What can be the problem, and what solution to the problem will you propose?

    Hi, Just thought since it's a good few questions there, I'd start by giving Info on APE files.
    This is from there site to read. Description: I need this info.LOL

    Monkey’s Audio is a fast and easy way to compress digital music.  Unlike traditional methods such as mp3, ogg, or lqt that permanently discard quality to save space, Monkey’s Audio only makes perfect, bit-for-bit copies of your music.  That means it always sounds perfect – exactly the same as the original.  Even though the sound is perfect, it still saves a lot of space. (think of it as a beefed-up Winzip™ for your music) The other great thing is that you can always decompress your Monkey's Audio files back to the exact, original files.  That way, you'll never have to recopy your CD collection to switch formats, and you'll always be able to recreate the original music CD if something ever happens to yours.

    All sounds good to me. Maybe they have what you want. Q; Can you run the 32bit player and try it.
    2 ,,,,You do have the latest Codec Pack.

    No help I know. but I do know what that files is now. Thanks.

    1) This forum is for Media Player Classic, which stopped being developed back in 2006.   Media Player Classic Home Cinema is a fork of this project and you should be asking this question on its site:

    2) The Media Player Classic Home Cinema features page doesn't say anything about APE files nor Monkey's Audio, so I don't know where you got that idea from:
