This type of file is not supported, or the required codec is not installed"

Several weeks ago I started editing video, using premier elements. Today, I tried to open that same project up, in premier elements, and keep getting an error. "This type of file is not supported, or the required codec is not installed". What's silly, is the file was created in the program and won't let me open it.  I've tried some older files, that I was able to open in the past and get the same error.

 

 

[Moderator note: this seems to be Premiere Elements rather than Premiere Pro, moved to the correct forum.]

Are you double clicking on a project file to open?  You need to have Premiere Elements closed when doing that.

If you open Premiere Elements and try to import the project file like you import media instead of trying to open it, you will get that error.

I've tried it both ways at this point.  Also made sure the program was updated.

What happens when you double click the project file when Premiere Elements is not open?
