Windows 7: Can't install sony vegas, probably because of C++ Redistributable

25 May 2009   #31

Windows Vista sp1 32-bit


I appreciate the effort in explaining all that to me but I did try this as well and it tells me "The module "sffrgpnv.dll" failed to load check path or debug it or something like that. I tried several of them and it says the same thing with them all. What a nightmare. I have emailed Sony Creative Software and they have yet to email me back.

I ordered my laptop without pre-loaded software to have more HD space. I don't have any "JUNK" to be causing this problem. I have done the Windows updates and downloaded the Quicktime and Microsoft DirectX 9 or whatever they say this program needs. Also, I only came to this forum because I finally found someone who was having the same problems I was. Sorry about my ignorance of the reason for its purpose in the first place. But....its nice to know that next year I'll probably have to go through all this nonsense again to keep up the "more current windows operating system" or I won't be able to download stuff before long. Thanks anyway for your help.

Windows 7 RTM x64

C++ Redistributable comes with a driver for the HTC SHIFT, the 2005 version and it seems too old to be requiered in win7, do you think downloading and installing the 2008 version is a better way to go or should i stick with the one that comes with the driver?

When it comes to the redistributable files, you need the one that comes with whatever program requires them.

After you install enough software you will eventually have the 2003 version 2005, 2008, and soon the 2010 versions all installed "Side by Side". In fact each of those versions can have 2-3 version themselves which also get installed side by side

Vegas 8 requires the 2005 ones installed which installing "as administrator" went just fine on W7. I think someone said Vegas 9 used the 2008 ones.

4. Select it, and remove it using the utility.
5. Once it is gone, re-extract the vegas setup files through main vegas extracter, and let it automatically launch the setup when it is done. When it tells you to install Visual C++ press install, and it will do the rest. Then it will register the modules and everything will be viola.

I learned this the long, hard, and painful way.

Hope it works for you.
this is really work..
