Vegas 8.0A Update

I was on the Sony website and looked at the updates. I saw that there is a Vegas 8.0A update. Is this a recent update to Vegas 8? If so, has anyone tried it?

I have been using 8.0a for a week or two and have had zero problems. Worked it pretty hard last night editing a church Christmas play without a glitch.

All good for me. Did a dance school concert, 4 cameras from night performance, balcony shot from a matinee, all shot in SD. Worked a treat for me.

I love Vegas.

Ciao,

Vegas Pro 8.0a

Did you have to uninstall your current version to run the update? I keep getting that message when I try to download the update.

Suzanne,

No, you shouldn't have to uninstall the previous version. Exactly what message are you getting?

It says that it already detects it and says that I need to uninstall current version. I had a DINK moment, I just had a thought and went to look at the version I have just tried to install and it is already the 8.0a. I went looking for updates because I am having a problem installing one of the componets of the software. Media Manager is not installing and when I bring up the Vegas 8 I get the message " The MSSQL$SONY_MEDIAMGR Service does not exist or the current account does not have enough privilage to manage it" I know it is because it does not exist because every time I try to install it I get the message "SQL Server Setup Unexpectedly Failed"

Suzanne,

I had a similar problem a few days ago. I was told to do a complete de-install of Vegas(Vegas 6 at the time) and then do a re-install. I made sure that all files related to vegas were removed. Then the media manager installed correctly. After that, I installed Vegas 8 and then the 8.0 update. Everything is working for me now.

Hope this helps.

NOTE: If you're going to 8.0a and are doing a fresh install, there is NO NEED to install 8.0 and then "upgrade" to 8.0a. 8.0a is a FULL install.

I will try the uninstall and see if that works. I sure hope so. Yea, I did not realize the version I had was 8.0a right away I was hoping that was the answer to my problem, when I checked the version, that is when I realized which one I had and that I did not need the update because I already had it. Thank you so much....
