I am trying to download my software on a new computer - I'm logged in and going to "Installation Program" under the my products section but I'm getting an error trying to open it. I'm attempting this on a mac - not sure what else to try?

Are you running windows software on a Mac? The installer is a windows program.

No the first time I downloaded it I had a windows computer but now I have a Mac. How do I get to a link to download for a Mac?

There are no Mac versions for either Vegas Pro or Vegas Movie Studio Platinum.

Years ago, some Mac users on the forum used something I think was called BootCamp to get Vegas to work (with limitations I seem to recall) on a Mac, but I've no idea if that works with later versions of the Mac OS.

This linked from the Vegas FAQs:

It's from 2016 so whether it applies in 2023 is unknown unless others on the forum can advise.
