Vegas 8.c and Microsoft Vista

Has anyone used Vegas 8.c with Vista? I heard some rummers that it is not compatable. Any thoughts on this? Bob

If you have a capable PC that is completely suitable for Vista, you should have no issues.

Vista is extremely stable. Vegas runs pretty much the same on Vista as on XP.

I'm running it with Vista Home Premium and in my opinion, runs better than on XP. No issues at all.

Hey thanks, that is just what I wanted to hear. My 8 year old HP may need replacing and all I see out there is Vista. Thanks again for the quick responses and your help. Bob

If you are going to upgrade to a Vista machine I would highly recommend that you get Vista 64. There is no advantage to using Vista 32 as you are still constrained to less than 4GB of memory like XP. I have Vegas Pro 8.0c and 8.1 running in Vista 64 with no problems. Most of the new Quad-Core machines will come configured with Vista 64. This is the way to go.

Vista 64 bit Ultimate

Hey guys I just made the move to 64 bit ultimate and I have not had alot of errors with my video card. So I just switched it out for another while I ship the other back on the manufactures warranty. I had tried the 8.1 and it does not work at all just freezes all the time.

I have a Quad core q6600 processor
Running Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit
with 6 gigs of Memory(DDR 3)
Had a Radeon 3870 X2 Video Card (Sent Back )

Thanks

Im using Vista Ultimate 64 with my new Dell Precision M4400 laptop. Havent done much work yet but both 8.0c and 8.1 are up and running.

Had a little issue though cause I first installed 8.1 without installing 8.0c and some render options werent available (like mxf and mpeg werent there). Solution is to install 8.0c first and then 8.1 and it works.
