So after installing & registering Vegas Pro 18 there was an error on launch detailed below.

The fix from support was to rename the 'so4reader.dll' file to '_so4reader.dll'
c:/program files/vegas/vegas pro 18/file IO plug ins/so4compoundplug

The original launch error being:
Application Name: VEGAS Pro

Did that fix work for you? I've tried it and it hasn't made a difference for me

It did, but then on Render As it crashes again

Having paid for Vegas 18 upgrade it is weeks that I have not been able to use it properly

Still unresolved despite them trying this fix:
