Importing x264vfw64 AVI footage 'Unsupported format or damaged file'

Hi!

I'd love to record gameplay from old MS-DOS games and place them on youtube in high quality. I usually do this the following way:

- Record using DosBox' (emulator) internal recorder.
This creates files that are (example) 320x200 on 60/70fps and are 1:1 (ZMBV codec AVI files).
- Convert footage in Virtual Dub to 1080 with a Neirest Neighbour pixel filter.
This is done to a x264vfw64 AVI file:



- Edit the result in Adobe Premiere Pro and render it to a nice H264 Codec file.

Problem:
After this I normally edit these files in Premiere Pro. But now, after a Windows10 re-install Premiere doesn't seem to recognize the files anymore ('Unsupported format or damaged file'). Online I keep reading about Premiere not supporting AVI files, but I've done this for years... and I can't seem to figure out why this failing. Even the files that I've processed earlier (months ago) can't be imported now. I have installed all the same codecs that I usually install (ZMBV, x264vfw64, Quicktime)

If you need an example file, here's a small one. (ww_001.avi - 4mb)

Anyone any advice?

Thank you in advance.
Bart

Apparently, Microsoft isn't supporting AVI files any more. Personally, I'd transcode to something else, or get new screen recording software.

I know where you're coming from with this, but it's strange, because everywhere I read online, it never did support it. But the strangest thing is... Mine did. And I find it really strange that all of the sudden, after a clean Windows install, which I've done a dozen times before, it restricts me from importing these files. Strange right?
