    Thanks so much for your detailed reply. I’ll have to look and monitor what’s happening, especially since I just upgraded to Vegas 18 and got many of the BorisFX that were part of the full bundle that I wanted. I’ll be working with it this week.

    Given the pricing and performance, I nailed down the MSI z590 Pro Wifi comet lake motherboard with an Intel i7-11700 3.6GHz for $520, which is not so out of line with what i used to spend on bare basic upgrades. I kept the Asus RX560-02g card in (I think it only has GB RAM but can handle 3 monitors and up to 4K – I’m only using two) even though it’s probably no better than the onboard video because I’d rather dedicate the processor and all the RAM to what it does best. I got 32GB of GSkill memory and 1TB of M.2 with a 500GB SSD for video use for Vegas and another 240GB SSD external for source video to process.

    I decided to opt away from the video card, as pricing is absurd. As I already had SSDs it also made the upgrade much less painful. Just mobo, CPU, Fan, PSU, case. I’ve gone extensive cooling and great so far.

    Wayne – I’m a little late returning to the party but many, many thanks. This is a common problem and I know that it’s more than me thanking you for helping solve it.

    Thanks – very much appreciated. I’ll add one more to the list I’ve been using and guess I’ll continue to use and perhaps might investigate some of your suggestions. My MP4 Box does muxing, demuxing and joining files. Works well.

    While I hate the online method of checking software and hate being treated like a criminal, the honor system clearly doesn’t work, much to our collective chagrin. The choice is whether to let a software developer have a reasonable method of confirming valid software or have them treat you like you wish and go out of business. Just the facts.

    Thanks much, George. Interesting… makes me wonder whether there is even a need to upgrade from 12 to 13. Right now it seems to just be a $150 upgrade without anything I can identify that is a significant enough upgrade. And right now v14 is in limbo and no one knows if and when it might come out and whether it will be something to move to for a while. Perhaps just investing in a video card might be a good idea… looking at current systems they aren’t really a ton faster than my i7-3770k.

    Had a problem and found these threads again. Read through all that and this regarding the freezing issue for “not responding.” Turned out it wasn’t so much a bug as it was unticking the prefs for the GPU. For the most part, Vegas 12 has been quite good for me overall. Many say it’s the opposite of Star Trek – use only the odd numbered releases of Vegas. But I think 12 is just fine.

    For those still wondering even though this is an old thread (I use Vegas 12 at this late date.) Turning off GPU Rendering in Options > Prefs > Video worked for me. I had removed my GTX 560 TI video card and was using the on board graphics with my i7-3770K CPU. Intel didn’t give me great results on the preview either. Without the GPU turned on, worked so much more smoothly.

    The only way to get it to work was to remove the install associated with the program entirely and force reregistration as such:

    uninstall vegas

    open regedit.exe, retract folder tree till selected only “computer”

    edit > find “Vegas Pro 12.0 Kernel” (without quotes, 12 if using vegas 12)

    if find in a folder with a bunch of number like “{3B5E27AF-A677-11d7-A773-00C04F68F44E}” , delete this folder only, where it found the “Vegas Pro 12.0 Kernel” – or in the alternative. Delete the keys for both Vegas Pro 12. Kernel and the second key that that has numbers in it.

    reinstall vegas.

    John, thanks as always for being such a great resource here. I think you’re probably right and it’s time to contact Sony support to see what wizardry they have available there. I’ll post a solution/update here if and when it arrives.

    All I changed was the CPU from a slower i7 to the fastest Ivy Bridge CPU. When you do this, your old driver for Intel Graphics won’t work properly and only one monitor will show. Windows basically helps you take care of the rest by simply going to Device Manager, selecting Display Graphics and in it you see Intel Graphics 4000. That’s all I needed to upgrade. You can’t use the “old” drivers because that was for a different device / CPU. That is the only thing I changed.

    I recall having this issue before I even changed the CPU – which is why I used other software to trim a video. So I’m pretty sure that even upgrading the CPU didn’t cause the problem.

    The sad part is that I started to learn another product because everything I’ve done will not even get Vegas 12 to start up. I don’t even get an error message that Vegas isn’t happy with the video driver. It just doesn’t launch at all. Is there a log file which will provide some type of error message?
