OK Same thing in VMSP11. F1 doesn't work. So I uninstalled and reinstalled both.
F1 works in both now but the desktop icons don't work now in either program. I mean, they do open the respective programs, but they do not look like the icon of the exe file in program files. They look like the generic shortcut icon. Refresh doesn't work. Recopying the shortcut doesn't work. Whatever.
Wierd. I read your question, about a day after the problem began, and went to right click on the icon, to verify that I couldn't change the icon to what it's supposed to be, and can you guess what happened.
You got it. Now the icons look correct.
Like I said before, whatever.
At least the video editing functionality of VMSP is not at all a problem.
