Ah, yeah that does sound familiar... forgot what I did to fix that. IIRC there was some update that broke that. It sucks that Microsoft has not just discontinued support for Win7 and some of it's best tools, but they are actively making it hard for users to continue operating it as well. Never used it, but hear good things about Flowblade. Lightworks is also on Linux. One of these days when it becomes more frustrating to keep Win7 going than teaching the wife how to use a whole new OS I'll switch to Linux.
