Tired of killing Vegas using Task Manager, especially for those old processes that stay in memory? There was a recent thread discussing the problem https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/vegas-remains-in-memory-like-a-bad-smell--115656/?page=1
Until the problem is fixed in Vegas or for use with older versions, here's a simple app that may be of value. https://www.dropbox.com/s/elyaf9s2b3sut59/KillVegas.exe?dl=0 It kills all instances of Vegas that are running, including those that are running after Vegas has been closed. Although I haven't tested it, it can probably be used after a Vegas crash.No installation is required. Just copy it to a location of your choice and create a shortcut on your Desktop.
Here's a second app based on Grazies' suggestions (next post). https://www.dropbox.com/s/jk9f7mq8hzvcjbk/SaveCloseKill.zip?dl=0
Here's what the script does: 1) saves the current project; 2) closes Vegas; and 3) waits 2 secs and then kills the Vegas process if it still remains. Note that this kills the process ONLY for the project that is being closed--not all Vegas processes like the first app. To use, download and unzip the 3 files into your Script Menu folder. E.g. for Vegas 16, it is usually found here: "C:\Program Files\VEGAS\VEGAS Pro 16.0\Script Menu". Please note that this script works only for Magix versions.
Let me know if there are problems.
