V9 on x64 consistently crashes

I've never been able to use a 64-bit version of Vegas because it hangs a few clicks into opening an existing project. Anyone in the community found a way to get around the issue detailed in the crash notes below?

x64 Vegas is supposed to have a bridge for utilizing 32-bit VSTs; but even when I remove all 32-bit VSTs from the project -- just adding one 64-bit third party VST (iZotope Ozone) brings down the whole works. And since I'm human, it frustrates the crap out of me.

you may be having two different types of crashes.

Using the izotope plugins on my 9.0c win7 64 bit also crashed hard.

I gave up on the izotope plugins and started using 32bit waves again with no problems.

Always make sure you have "track buffering" disabled in your audio preferences. I've had no crashes using only waves plugins.

I've upgraded to w7x64 now, and still suffer the same crash problems as in Vista. In either case, I find the 32-bit build of Vegas to perform far more stabler than the x64, even with izotope plugins in use. I would find it odd that Sony has partnered with izotope to release their plugins with Sony Creative Software products, and yet the latest and greatest version of Ozone and Vegas would purportedly not play nicely together. Sadly, Vegas 8 on a 32-bit Vista system was rock-solid, but now all my working files have been saved in the Vegas 9 format, so there's no going back.
