Cineform AVI in WM11?

I'm building a new computer using Vista 64, which of course has Windows Media 11. I installed Prospect HD after installing PPro. Cineform AVIs will not play. WMP says it's loading the codecs, then there's an error message titled "CineForm HD Decoder" with the message "The CineForm decoder encountered an error". I've tried also removing the CS4 "beta" CFHDDecoder.dll from the path, just in case, but that didn't make any difference.

Anything I should try before ringing up Cineform support? It's not a *huge* issue, but I do like to watch the videos sometimes after I've produced an AVI before rendering with my renderer...


[edit: Oh, and the files do load in CS4 with the CFHDDecoder & plugins, and do load in PPro 1.5 which is my previous version, and TMPGenc does not seem to have a problem reading/rendering with the file]
