Did the upgrade last night.
Vegas working as normal but had a big issue with my two plug-in’s from FBmn. They deregistered themselves and you have to go through the whole registration process again and get new activation codes.

That was fine, but I rendered two large wedding videos through the night, and when these de-register, the scenes they are applied to go black, luckily I spotted this when reviewing a sample section.

I had a few issues with some things like Outlook not finding files and having to change security settings to fix it and I had to edit the registry for MS Money to run. So far that’s it. I used Nero to burn a disc ok and the upgrade fixed a few issues that I had with Windows 7 like not being able to erase a re-writable.

Dexcon said, "The only downside so far with W10 is that my Creative sound card is not supported on W10, but Creative's web site shows that many f their products will get a W10 driver update this month or in September."

That is a big deal killer for me! I depend on my card for my music since I use sound-fonts for it.

Creative always seems to drag their feet and lag behind on getting updated drivers and all. I never could get my sound card to work properly with Windows 8 or 8.1.

So if I want to do music, it looks like I will be with Windows 7 for a long time.

I wish another sound card company supported my sound-fonts.

Sound Fonts are the difference between 'MIDI' sounding music vs realistic sounding music. Especially with the great Sound Fonts.

Well I upgraded to Win 10. First no audio.

Fixed that by re-installing the driver & the audio software. (EMU 1212M, Patchmix).
Got it working

Now Vegas (Pro 13 bld 453) hangs while it tries to start.
Gets all the way to initializing UI, then hangs.
Splash screen just sits there but it won't go any further.

Tried un-installing Vegas then re-installing - same thing.
No Go.

Just wanted to see if anyone was having the same issues and figured it out before I un-install all my SCS software & re-install everything. That always seemed to fix this type of problem in the past, it just takes a lot of time not to mention setting up all the apps again!!!

Thanks,
Will

Edited: Seems as if none of my SCS are working. DVD Architect won't even try to start, at least Sound Forge & CD Architect try to start, they get the splash screen up but will go no further.

Sounds like I'll need to try re-installing everything .......

Sounds like Windows 10 is having other issues too:

Sound Devices Technical Alert

We have confirmed user reports of a serious issue with Windows 10 and removable media formatted as FAT32. Users are experiencing corruption of .wav media files by simply inserting FAT32 formatted SD or CF cards into a Windows 10 computer. Files do not need to be opened or accessed in order for them to become corrupt.

We wish to emphasize that this problem exists with .wav files regardless of whether they were recorded on Sound Devices equipment or not. We strongly recommend not using Windows 10 with your Sound Devices created audio files.

This problem has been reported to Microsoft who will have to issue any fix, update, or further information on the behavior of Windows 10. If we learn of any new information we will share it at the earliest. Thank you for your continued support!"

Been running Windows 10 for well over a month and love it. It is noticeably snappier overall. In terms of Vegas the only minor annoyance I'm seeing on mine is that many toggle buttons, like tool selection or the loop button, don't depress but rather highlight or change color when active. Not a huge deal but at times takes a split second more to realize when somethings going on that I mighta caught that split second sooner previous.

On another note, Windows update seems to be failing a lot, not sure what that's about but will dig around, I'm sure there's a solution just haven't done my due diligence yet.

I heard Sony Vaio's don't work, as Sony is out of the computer manufacturing business.

Initially going over to Windows 10 was not too bad. Then I think they sent an update and then my renders kept failing.
Downloading and installing the Nivda graphics card software cured this to some extent and renders now complete. However, when I was on Windows 7, I could render three sometimes four Blu-Ray videos at the same time on my PC with no problems and just leave them overnight. Now if I set up three not all of them complete and some just stop. Last night I left three rendering through the night and only one completed.

The other major flaw I am getting with Windows 10 is that it changed a lot of my folder file permissions and I have to go into the security tag and give full access to quite a few folders, which is a pain when you launch a programme that depends on reading and writing to a folder . I couldn’t open Outlook until I did this to some folders and I have to run my new scanner/printer in Administrator mode. I don’t want to turn off any further updates as these may put things right.

"Initially going over to Windows 10 was not too bad. Then I think they sent an update and then my renders kept failing." That is the main reason I haven't upgraded my edit m/c to Win 10. How many times have many of us here turned off windows update to keep a nice stable editing environment?

I have upgraded my laptop to Win 10 though. It was starting to run a bit sluggish anyway, so I thought "what the heck". The process was painless, and I did the install over my existing 8.1. The only thing that didn't carry on working normally was Zone Alarm...though that was easily fixed. It's a nice slick OS to work with - definitely speeded up my laptop!

just another heads-up re 10:

still avoiding risking it on 'work' pc's, but i did stick it on an old tosh sat pro s200 duo core laptop with 4gb ram.

have been pleasantly surprised how (relatively to 7) snappy it's become. the upgrade was slow, but painless. all my apps and settings still seem to work.

next is having a play with the gui. don't like not being able to sort / arrange my apps in 'view all', but the tiles now do seem to have some use... we'll see...

I upgraded a 4 year old Vaio laptop to 10. The only casualty was WebEasy (a primitive drag and drop website builder) which lost its serial number. Quickly remedied.

One terrific benefit on the Vaio: The mouse pad was always overly sensitive with current Win 7 drivers, and that issue appears to have disappeared.

Vegas Pro 11 runs fine.

Edit: Specs are my system 1
