AME won't allow hardware encoding but how to turn it off

When I export MP4 from AME, it will not play in Media Player, but will play in MPC-HC.  I looked up a "fix" for this, and it says to use hardware accellerated encoding.  Well, the preset settings show Progressive checked but grayed out, and if I try to change the Encoding Settings from Software to Hardware encoding, I get an error message "Your system's hardware does not support hardware accellerated encoding for the current settings."  I'm following the same workflow that has always worked before, which is rendering to Quicktime Animation compression and compressing to MP4 in AME. I'm on the latest version of AME on a new computer with i9-14900K and RTX 4080 Super GPU.  I just updated the driver to see if that would fix it, but it didn't.  I tried disabling the checkbox shown disabled in the Preferences Media tab to see if that would turn off Hardward Encoding and fix the problem, but it had no effect.  It's not that I particularly need it play in Media Encoder, but that does tell me something is wrong with it.  Any suggestions welcome! Thanks!
