Default No video displayed in player windows?

I had Edius 2 installed on a Windows XP computer that died. I re-installed it on a Windows 7 64 bit computer with an AMD quad-core and 6 Gig of RAM. When I open or try to create a project I'm not able to see video in either of the player windows. If I click on either one of the player windows, a still image becomes visible in the opposite player window. The audio does play from the time line video or the opened file video.

I considered that the problem could be with the video card, which is one integral to the mother board, a Radeon HD 4200. But it seems to meet or exceed the specs for this older version of Edius, which include that the card should be able to handle dual display.

I should also explain that I only use Edius for a small, repetitive video editing task where the version I have did everything I needed it to.

Thanks for any help!

I don't know if this will work. Try running Edius 2 in compatibility mode. As I said, I don't know if this will work, but you can try it.

IIRC EDIUS 2.x was still tied to one of the hardware boards and is probably trying to use an overlay mode that isn't supported in Win 7.

Default Thank you!

Thanks for the replies. It never made sense to update when what I had did exactly what I needed it to do. It looks like Neo may be my best option for my purposes. Thanks again!
