Software: VEGAS Pro 17.0 build 452

Dear Forum Members,

Recently re-installed VEGAS Pro 17 on a new laptop with a fresh/clean Windows. Installer went OK, activation went OK but then when launching the program, the startup window gets stuck at "Initializing DirectX plug-ins..." without any Error reporting system etc.

Where to start troubleshooting this issue?

Seems to be now OK. "dxdiag.exe" was having trouble also. Uninstalled (with Delete driver checked) both Display Adapters (Intel and NVIDIA), rebooted, waited for OS to install drivers again. Then dxdiag.exe and VEGAS started OK.

I had the same problem but reinstalling DirectX did not resolve it. Turns out Movie Studio doesn't like USB-connected monitors. I had a 3rd monitor attached via USB. The second I disconnected it, Movie Studio started right up!
