Instructions for the reactivation of your old SCS Forum Account


wheres-my-old-account schrieb am 07.09.2016 um 00:21 Uhr

I did not have a Magix account. Followed the instructions, using my old SCS email. Got a welcome email, but all it had was a link to "Write a post" not a link to restore account or a link to verify account. Please help.

I was able to follow the first 4 steps in the screenshots successfully, but the "Your profile has been restored successfully" page from step 5 does not appear.  Please help!

@abelas, w-diu: i did resend your welcome mails which contain a button-link to start the restore process.

@wheres-my-old-account: i couldnt find your registered email address in any of the migrated scs accounts. either its the wrong one or you didnt have any posts. accounts without posts have not been migrated.

accounts without posts have not been migrated.

Ok, that's why. Perhaps add this to the original instructions and save some other people a little time.

BuzzDee schrieb am 07.09.2016 um 19:47 Uhr

why would you want to restore your old account-without-posts anyway, just get your old nickname and you are done? that would have saved you even more time.

I had a lot of threads I was following, but thanks.

BuzzDee schrieb am 07.09.2016 um 23:35 Uhr

ok im sorry then, but those lists havent been migrated, for no one. and you are right, we should mention this somewhere so it gets less confusing.

Hi BuzzDee,

Thanks! I received the welcome email titled "Welcome to the VEGAS Community" with the "Restore profile now" link.  When I click the link, it redirects me to and there's an error at the bottom of the page: "Error: Your profile was restored already."  Please help!

BuzzDee schrieb am 08.09.2016 um 10:47 Uhr

Thank you for your information - there was indeed a bug which has been fixed now. Please click the link again.

This confuses me. How were you following them? There was no "follow" mechanism (thread subscription) on the old forum. 😕

vkmast schrieb am 08.09.2016 um 13:11 Uhr

It confused me as well. But wheres-my-old-account (and others who may not have noticed) should be pleased to know that the actual threads and e.g. all of the old 80K posts on the Pro forum (they were all "posts" in olden days, "comment" was not used...) are still here. You need to scroll to go back though. And allows you to do a Search on those threads. The new posts and comments after the transition are not similarly searchable (yet).

Thanks, BuzzDee.  It worked! :)

I have never entered a Post but want to access my software for download. I followed the instructions but do not get an activation link - just an email to write a Post. How do I get an activation link e-mail? How do I access my software? My Profile is a new one at Vegas not the old Sony one I had.

With the switch over, will our new accounts here have our serial number information for the product we had registered with SCS? I never posted in the Vegas forum there. I have the numbers saved but I am worried about that situation. I did register with my old email address for my SCS account. I was going to reinstall Vegas today because it was acting up, but now I don't want to uninstall it just in case I run into problems and lose it. I have the same problem @paul-m has.

chap schrieb am 13.09.2016 um 03:33 Uhr

Yes where do I find the serial numbers for my old install?

chap schrieb am 13.09.2016 um 03:34 Uhr

I never got the email as well, logged in with the only email account i've used in several years.


Also I was redirected here BEFORE I saw any info about saving the old account info. 


An help is appreciated

I Just got the welcome email, but not activation button. Just WRITE A POST. NO migration of my old acc with SCS.

Hello! I purchased Sony Vegas Movie Studio 11 a few years ago. Now I have a new computer, but I don't have the serial number that came in the box. I've looked everywhere. I tried logging in with this, however I'm not receiving any emails from this site. Not even in spam. 

Corey schrieb am 15.09.2016 um 21:03 Uhr

Received a welcome email, but it didn't include any information in regards to migrating my Sony Account, just "Write a post". Could use a little help. Thanks.

BuzzDee schrieb am 16.09.2016 um 10:17 Uhr

@corey-h, pablo-m: there is no account to restore with your current email adress. note that accounts without posts have not been migrated.

BuzzDee schrieb am 19.09.2016 um 17:13 Uhr

same reason as above.
