Project won't open - stuck at 6% - any thoughts?

Project wont open-stuck at 6% - any thoughts?

I think I know what the problem is – Magic Bullet Looks. But I don’t have a solution.

I installed the plugin yesterday, worked many hours on a project, closed it, then tried to re-open it and…stuck at 6%. It won’t load the project further. I have another vrsion of the project saved as well – that one will only load to 2%...

When I disable (rename) the magic bullet .dll file -- the project will load. I’m running Vegas Pro 8a. Downloading 8c now and hope that might help the situation.

Clearly this plugin is causing a problem. I’d really hate to lose my many hours of work. I applied numerous instances of Magic Bullet Looks to individual clips all across my timeline.

Any thoughts or anyone had a similar problem?

Thinking of upgrading to a new machine – I’m on a somewhat now old duo core 3.2 ghz PC presently… might that be the problem?

Thanks --

Further Update:

I just got the project to open - somehow. I opened a previous project that did not use any instances of MB. I clicked on a clip, then opened/applied magic bullet, then turned it off and exited the project. I then noticed in my Windows task manager that Looksbuilder.exe was present where it had not been earlier.

It seems that if looksbuilder.exe is not running already (in the task manager>processes) when you open a Vegas project that has been saved with MB Looks applied -- Vegas won't open the project.

Humm --

Anyone else experience this? Strange.
