I folloed the link posted by SonyEPM the other day and downloaded the 5.0 (renamed 5.0b) upgrade. Got home with it tonight and began to install, low and behold it told me I was installing the 5.0a upgrade, which I alreaby have. I guess I'll try again tomorrow.
Both downloads have the same name. If your computer has cached the old information, it may not actually download the new one. Try deleting the old install program and, possibly, clearing your cache and try again. Or use a download manager program to perform the download.
I downloaded 5.0b (?) and installed again and it repeated the same scenario again tonight. I went ahead with the install and I still have Vegas 5.0a. When I upgraded from 5.0 to 5.0a I did it the same way and everything worked fine. I"ll try what you all suggested.
OK I removed Vegas 5.0a and installed the "upgrade" to 5.0b?. I got the 5.0a installed again, only this time it installed from scratch. I had to reinput my serial number and reregister and redo all my preference settings. I still got 5.0a build 134. I guess I'll be ahappy 5.0a user for a while longer. I down loaded both 5.0b updes at my work place since I have a T-1 there, much faster for a 41 gig file than my home dial up. I bring the file home and install there. When I upgraed from 5.0 to 5.0a I did it the same way with no difficulty. this my first ever problem with anthing having to do with Vegas. Help please.
OK I had e-mailed the Sony-Vegas Customer Service-Support Thursday and they got a reply backto me on Saturday. The support folks provided a link that automatically began downloading when I clicked on it. I finally got 5.0b. So far everything works great. That was a great responce time for the Sony-Vegas support.
