ArcMap 10.4 and MrSID files

Why can I not load MrSID files any more into my projects after loading ArCMap 10.4?   I've been through the help files and they say to make sure I have the supported raster dataset file formats checked by going to:

Customize > ArcMap Options > Raster > File Formats   I have checked that and MrSID files are checked.  I even tried re-downloading another copy of the SID files and it still does not work.  I have not encountered this problem with prior versions of ArcMap.  The errors I recieve when trying to load a SID file are "Invalid raster dataset. Failed to create raster layer."  and also "A selected item could not be added to the map. Failed to open raster dataset."   Very frustrating.
