I am having the same problem but I do not have another machine to copy
L3codeca.acm. Any other way to fix this?

Windows Update extracts the files that are part of the patch here:
%WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution\Download\{long series of numbers and
letters}\{Sub Folders} (Don't have exact folder name for this patch)

Search for "L3codeca.acm" there.

Install Media Player Nine and its subsequent updates. 977816 will then
detect correctly. I bet this issue only is occuring with machines still at
media player version 6.4.
