play memories home won't play video

Hi, I have a Sony HDR-SR11 -- for several years now I've been taking video and pics and dumping them to a PC.  Several months ago, I was prompted to update the Sony software (now called Play Memories Home), so I did (now at version, and ever since I've updated, the software will no longer play HD videos that I've recorded with the camer.  When I double-click the video file inside the software it shows a preview of the first frame, but it will not play.  No error is reported.  I have also tried the menu option: Media Control -> Play but nothing happens.


How can I resolve this?  I have run the PlayMemories Home Environment Check Tool and created a diagnostic archive of all my environment settings.  I'd be happy to mail this to someone @ Sony if they can tell me where to send it to.

Re: play memories home won't play video

Try uninstalling and re-installing Play Memories Home.  It could also be possible that you may need to update the driver for your video card.
