Windows 7: Sony Vegas 9.0 Platinum incompatible with Windows 7 RC1

Download the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
Download details: Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)


I think this might help. After installing this, install Sony Vegas

Ok here's the scoop:

Looks like you have probably already installed the vc runtimes as suggested above. If not they should be located in with the install files. vcredist_x86.exe or something. Right click it and choose Run As Administrator.

With that done and the program installed as administrator (Yes you will get the registration errors but the program IS installed, just some of the sound filter plugins won't work yet).

Now, open a command prompt as administrator: Right click the "Command Prompt" executable( start->all programs->command prompt) and select Run as Administrator. Now CD to the filters folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\Shared Plug-Ins\Audio assuming you installed in the normal path.

Now for every file in the folder (should be 8 or 9 dll files) type the following:
regsvr32 <dll name> [(I.e." regsvr32 sffrgpnv.dll" and hit enter)

The first problem is probably a stupid bug in the vegas install program, it should know if it has to install the vc runtime libs before anything else. The second issue is probably a case of even more heightned security in windows 7 over vista and another example of "good" but "going to bite consumers in the butt" when they try to install older software on it

Hi man, first of all, thanks for your help and for all the others that tried like you.

I have YET ANOTHER ERROR...

Ill post it in a moment

EDIT: Here you go:



For Spanish speakers, its self explanatory. For those who are English: Ill translate it briefly: It says that it cannot find the component, but you can clearly see it on the folder.. What the f*ck is wrong with this? :S

I believe I got that error as well before I installed the vc runtime libs.

Will vegas launch at all?

That error pretty much cinches that you do not have to proper vc libraries installed. The vegas installer should install them first, not last (they get skipped by the registration errors because the DLLs also won't run because the libs are missing :P)

I got both of those errors until I had ran the "vc_redisyx86.exe" installer file that is in the folder along with the other vegas install files. After that installed, vegas ran fine (no need to re-run the vegas installer), but then I had to hand register the dlls as described above.

It sounds like they have gotten the bugs fixed in 9.0 But 8 is "hand installable".

fseal: I still got the component error that regsvr32 shows up (I have install c++ redistribuitable 2005 and its SP1, thats the component Vegas needs to run, and it still ****s up...)

Dudes, I'm assuming this is the ONLY way to run Vegas on my Windows 7 box:



Why.. Why do I have to have compatibility issues WITH VEGAS? I need it so badly... If only was with another video editing program it would be fine... T_T
