Production assistant 3 will not install

bill-jackson wrote on 10/17/2017, 10:09 PM

Refreshing my last post. I purchased Magix Vegas 15, it installed and runs with no problems. I purchased Vegas assistant 3. It downloaded but will not install. I get an error message "can not find Vegas 15 your system has not been modified". I am running windows 10 64 bit, 32 m memory.

Any help would be appreciated

The Production Assistant Pro 3.0 installer hasn't been updated to recognize Vegas Pro 15 yet. We are working on it. If you have Vegas Pro 14 installed, PA3 will install and then be visible in Vegas Pro 15. I will update this thread when the new installer is available.

Dear John,

Sorry to bother you with this. I purchased Production Assistant Pro 3 on 17 November 2017 only to realised the software is not compatible with Vegas Pro 15. I submitted a ticket to Magix support on the same day but I am yet to get a response to my ticket. I am sorry to say that sales page on Vegas website on PA 3 is misleading because it clearly states that the software requires Vegas Pro 14 and above. I only realised the incompatibility issue when I tried to install it. About the latest version that would be compatible with Vegas Pro 15, I only saw this here on this thread.

Please how soon is the version compatible with Vegas Pro 15 going to be released?

@asidcam It's available now. You can download it here: Production Assistant Pro 3.0

Let me know if you have any problems.

I just finished building a new pc with Nvidea GTX 1080ti 8700K cpu and 64MB ram and omitted Vegas 14 in my sw installation, to just stick to V15, and I had the same problem yesterday, but thanks to JohnnyRoy the new install file came just in time to install successfully today.

I must warn however I have never seen so many virus and suspicious behavior warnings during install: first windows defender, then Norton security. Also fewer than 5 people installed this before (with Norton active that is). That could mean I may the first to install it worldwide šŸ¤“

@bitman Windows Defender is complaining because our code signing certificate expired and we didn't renew it. This wasn't a big deal on Windows 7 and earlier but on Windows 10 all code needs to be signed in order to remove the Windows "don't trust" pop-up. Of course, code signing certificates costs hundreds of dollars every year to renew so Microsoft has quite a nice "extortion" scheme going on.

As for Norton, someone should slap them with a deframation law suit. They are particularly hostile to small developers like ourselves. Of course, it could also mean that hardly anyone uses their crappy software anymore which is why they have low numbers of our software being installed by computers that use them. ;-)

@JohnnyRoy

On my newly build PC I wanted to install VASST stutterframe and timewarp on Vegas 15 pro. I presume you need to update the VASST installers also, as it does not install (it used to work on Vegas 14), but I did not want install vegas 14 anymore on my new system.

Thank You @JohnnyRoy, downloading and installing from the direct link worked great Now all I need to find is a manual or user's guide. Is there one? None is listed on this site or the VASST Software site.

@douglas-hess Try looking under:

Start > All Programs > Vegas > Production Assistant Pro 3.0 > Production Assistant Pro 3.0 Users Guide.

...or whatever the equivalent is in Windows 10 (because I'm still using Windows 7) ;-)
