I experienced the atrocious slow start on both SD and HDV projects and I don't have any Cineform files on this system - anywhere.

SD is vanilla NTSC DV and HDV just uses the .M2T files.

Once I reverted to the 9.0c DLL as above, startup is back to 9.0c performance. This is on my System #1 (in specs).

I opened a project and it was slow then opened another and it was slow and so on with about 6 projects. When I re-opened one that was already opened and closed it was real fast as with all the rest. I closed Vegas then re-opened vegas and everything was blazing fast. Re-boot and the same thing happens all over again.

This forum is a valuable resource. Thank you all for alerting users to the terrible problems with the new "patch." I would normally just install new patches as a matter of course, but I downloaded "d" and then read these posts before installing. Needless to say, I did not install it. I will stick with 9.0b-64 and 9.0c-32 for now. Neither work as I need them to, but with the two of them, I can work around Sony's problems.

I uninstalled 9.0c, cleaned the registry, and deleted all references to Vegas. Then I installed 9.0d. No problems at all.

64 bit versiion of Vegas and WIndows 7.

Anyone know if you still have to do the CFFExplorer editing and switch for 9.0d?

Yes if you uninstalled you'll need to use the CFFExporer fix for 32 bit. That fix has solved my render hangs.

I did this, and had no luck.

What did you use to clean the registry?

I fixed the slow load problem. Vegas projects now load faster than ever before. I reassigned all my file types (with the exception of mp3 from QT to DivXX Pro.)

"Open copy in Forge" also takes forever the first time.

I use Ccleaner - it's free, I think it is good, but beware of default settings, it cleans cookies...

Just found time to install it my self and play a little bit with it.

Running on my i7 / 12GB / win7-64

Uninstalled 9.0c 64
Ran CCleaner
Installed 9.0d

Opened od project - all fine and fast
Tried AVCHD TL playback, and it just was great, started with 25 fps almost asap - not the old lack for ½ sec., seems faster than before.

Have yet to try it out more, but so far it seems great for me.

C Cleaner, and then TuneUp Utilities - ok, so maybe I'm anal.

JJKizak, really off topic----- have you been following the volcano in Iceland. Its really melting the glazier on it and screwing the airways.

I wouldn't use a registry cleaner. I have used them in the past and they have damaged my registry creating an unstable system. Additionally I personally have never seen any difference in my system performance during the time I used them.

I had to open 2 Vegas projects that I created in 2007. I update two segments on a DVD for a 2010 version and everything went very smooth. Used 9d 32bit. No problems at all. Plus I was able to create a much better image because of 2 additional plug-ins that I own to handle chroma key.

Thanx for the timely info *S*. I'm just left wondering if the un-install routine will scrub all the reg keys instead of having to manually go thru regedit.

Any advice / suggestions etc.would be greatly appreciated ( 9.0d is unworkable ).

Again, thanx for your consideration,

Yes, and it will put a dent in the global warming. I am worried about the super duper humongous one in Yellowstone which is 40,000 years overdue and will pretty much eliminate humanity besides throwing us into a 2000 year ice age. There is a 5 square mile deep magma buildup underneath Yellowstone and it is rising every year by satellite measurement. Where are you located?
