Program worked fine up till four days ago, everything was fine, even after an update, edited, renderd fiels etc...then try to open today and whetehr from file or from program Shortcut, it only gets to a Stopped working window and send report. have reinstalled, rebooted, etc...nothing.
So this seems to be the problem..Host services2.simplitec.com not found. I am thinking that maybe because I had uninstalled my original Vegas 15 the update isnt finding the reference....but I have reinstalled and still no joy so not sure
I believe it was. the rest of network Stuff worked just fine. I am at the stage now of having delted everything I can find of Magix, Sony, New Blue, Sound Forge etc. and checking that rest of stuff works.
well no joy...reinstalled after clean everything I could find and something still buried on my puter that is messing it all up.....I know this because as soon as it is reinstalled, it drops the Start pinned Icon right back in the same place. The last time i had a major problem like this i had to reformat my entire computer. why cant they just make a program that when you uninstall, a reinstall will just fix.
@Robin-Baston the reason why because each computer is different. No one knows what's installed on your computer that could be causing the issue. It also could be hardware. The reason why the icon appeared in the same location is that if you installed anything else, it would appear there. That is the next "location" for an icon to appear on your desktop.
A program can't fix a problem if it's a computer/windows issue.
it worked fine up till thursday. all i did was uninstall the Updater....that was it. reinstalling that or the whole program should have fixed it. on my system. Icons for Programs dont appear in the start view unless I put them there (pin to start)...so some residue of the orginal is still there after I uninstall. the last time i had to fix vegas was to just buy the new next upgrade...so maybe I will just switch to a different program this time.
@Robin-Baston I've found with almost every program that I have, using the Windows (default) uninstall never really uninstalls everything. There are folders left over. Registry items still there. I've resorted to using Revo Pro Uninstaller if the regular way doesn't work. It looks for hidden uninstalled folders and registry items that are left.
There is a free version you can try, Revo Uninstaller Free. You have nothing to loss by trying it. I use the Moderate, and look at the registry items to make sure they located in the right folders. And check to be sure the folders are the correct ones. It's a "nuclear" option that has helped me uninstall/remove problematic software, and get a good reinstall.
@Reyfox I use Iobit Uninstall....which usually does a good job. will Revo a shot give it a shot.

@Robin-Baston Hi, this won't help your issue but just to help get the full picture can you go to your icon at the top, click it - My Profile, & fill in your Signature with your Vegas version, Windows version & system specs, full name of CPU, GPU, & amount of RAM etc. this will then show at the bottom of the comments 👍 (see mine & other peoples at the bottom of comments) thanks.
@Robin-Baston Thanks,, yep, it just gives people the full picture of your end of the situation, unless someone says otherwise i doubt it has anything to do with why you can't load Vegas but it's always there without having to be asked again in the future or scrolling up through your comments to find that info 👍👍
well did the Revo thing....even re downloaded Exe file, and re instaleld, Icon popped up in start as before and program still wont open. there really isnt anything wrong with my system. revo installed just fine, Even reinstalled Soundforge Pro 15 and that works just fine.
@Robin-Baston click those 2 boxes, Include extra information and Show details....then screenshot that.
Just thinking..... have you ever run as Administrator in the CMD Prompt, sfc /scannow? This checks your system to see if there are corrupt operating system files and can replace them. You can read how to do this HERE.
