thanks for the reply.
Ok, i'm using an acer 6530 laptop, 4g ram, athlon x2 ql-90.
Sony Vegas is a nice piece of video editing software I use in vista, so i thought i'd try out the 64 bit version in windows 7 64 bit. but i keep coming up with an error starting up that 'wia is missing'. not sure why. it's a standard windows 7 installation (only 2 days old!) so i thought all the services would be there.
someone said there shound be a 'stisvc' entry under 'HK Local Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\".
I don't see such a listing. are you using windows 7? do u have such an entry.
so, that's basically it, i don't have Windows Imaging Service listed under services and i'm wondering why. I installed all the updates, by the way. everything works fine under vista, but i was told 7 is even better, so i'd to get vegas working in it!
