InstalledCodec doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. Just copy the executable file (InstalledCodec.exe) to any folder you like, and run it.
The main window of InstalledCodec displays the list of all Codec drivers and DirectShow filters. You can easily select one or more components, and then disable or enable them, export the information into text/xml/html file, or copy the information to the clipboard, and then paste it to Excel or OpenOffice spreadsheet.

If you install multiple Codec packages and other multimedia software on the same computer, you might find out that some multimedia files are not played properly as before.
