You can read the gory details below but now that I have had a chance to try some more things I will try to spare you all the frustration below. Basically I have 2 systems, a desktop and a notebook. But have ample resources. The desktop runs Win 7 and the notebook Win 10. Here are the issues:
Trying to install anything newer than Ver 14 of Vegas hits a no good password or user ID issue, though I can log on fine on this sight using the same identical info. Trying to create a new account sees I have one...
All apps but Vegas 11 lock up when I touch anything in the program related to sound. Fx, Faders, you name it. Calling up task manager and putting that away snaps Vegas out of it's stupor. I have tried switching off asio and using the generic sound driver in Vegas and issue remains. That is about as far as I have gotten, but am unsure where to go next. Please advise. If you need additional info, see below.
That you to the gentleman that sent me the link here, not the easiest to navigate to as I thought it was in the forum.
I don't know what it is with this software, but if something can go wrong this stuff is it. I have 2 entirely different systems. 1 is a high end (in it's day) lenovo W541 Notebook and the a high End DAW Tower Box. Both have 32GB Ram, good video, CPU, name it. We are not lacking resources here.
V-11 has always been a buggy thing, when Sony had it. So I tried to put V-15 on my notebook. That install failed as it looked at hundreds of VST plugins. Reaper loves them but this sure does not. Failing that I tried V-15 on the Tower box I got. It loaded and I became hopeful. I go in and load up some video. Then anything I touch sound related wise locks up Vegas 15. So I load V-16 trial. When I try to register NewBlueFx it fails and says a "An error occurred during sign in - Email and password are required. Cool, so they why does my user account here work? At this point I am on a slow boil as I really need to get a video out the door. So I go back to Vegas 11... hey as long as I save every 3 keystrokes at least it runs soft of. I import my video and all is good except it nukes the sound track. Cool... Next I put on Vegas 14 on the Tower Box. All is well until it does the same exact thing as V-15. So there would appear to be a conflict. Yeah With an RME 802 AI that is the most up to date drivers on the planet? Hum. Knowing I am done for on the tower box I try to load V-14 on the notebook since the audio and drivers there are different. Well can you guess what was next? Yeah the registration system pukes again. Cool... at this point I am so stinking mad at all this I am ready for another platform.
Do others have these kinds of experiences with this software?
Has anyone been able to solve such issues with sound?
I hate to be negative and point fingers but I think this software has earned that, at least on this end.
20+ year IT Systems guy, So were we got decent HW and no newby here. I guess what I lack is decent SW?
Any help that can be given will be appreciated much.
