#534 v.2.5.2 on Windows 7 - Unable to open simple avs script (opening an mkv via DirectShowSource)

Hi.
I got trouble trying to add a simple AVS script to my project.
The script does this:
- opens an mkv mute video file (1GB circa) using DirectShowSource,
- cut some pieces (trim/loop),
- add some text (subtitles),
- audiodub it with a wave audio track (700MB circa)
Every time I try to open it with DVDStyler it hangs for a while and then it crashes and closes (I open the script without problems in VirtualDub).
I tryed to simplify the script to try to understand what could be the problem and what I get is that a very simple AVS script consisting of the only one line:

DirectShowSource("myfile.mkv")

gives same result as the less simple one I need: DVDStyler hangs for a while and then crashes and closes (obviously, VirtualDub opens it withoout problems).
I'd really appreciate your help, any idea how to solve this?
Thank you very much!

    I somewhat solved the issue installing Haali media splitter.
    Nonetheless, now I got another problem: as I burn a DVD I don't get a good result... the audio is good but instead of my movie I see like an acid green background and many... let's call them "garbage sprite" flickering for all the video duration...
    It must be due to the fact I use an AVS script rather than a "real" video file I think,
    any suggestion?
    Thanks.

    Did you install avisynth?

    And what version of avisynth do you use?

    Hello Alex and thanks for replying.
    Of course I installed AviSynth and used scripts several times to edit some of my videos and saving the result as AVI file with VirtualDub.
    Opening a script to know the version (always with VirtualDub) it says:

    AviSynth 2.58, build:Dec 22 2008 [08:46:51]

    I think it's the last one of 2.5 releases available.
