Some of such error messages come up, when the file that you are trying to save is currently in use by a program that is running on that moment.

Danny, right click Vegas icon and chose 'Run as administrator'
or grant full access for users to c:\ProgramData\Sony\Vegas Pro\12.0\Vegas profiles.ini

Re: Error: An unknown error occurred trying to save the video profile

Thanks Juris, your answer fixed the error but now another problem.

I can now see it is creating the entry in the ini file, setting it to progressive but each time I start vegas and add a clip it always sets it to upper field first, even though the ini is telling it to use progressive.

Here is my ini entry

Key14={2CFE4279-C170-480C-B556-2D8B4B8CCE77}, "None", 1920, 1080, 25.0, 12
Attributes14="Progressive", 1.000000, "None", 0.000000

Its for C100 footage in PF25 format (progressive in an interlaced wrapper).

Seems to be a Vegas bug that its ignoring my ini file.

As seems that Vegas looking for information in ini file only if the media file does not contain it.

It is definetly reading the right ini file. If I change the alpha or aspect it applys the correct setting. It's just totally ignoring my progressive entry.

Maybe it will help, if you try the following:
In the box of the project settings, above the preview window click on the envelop "Match Media Settings" and ;lead the browser to one of the video-files you are using. Click the file and click on "Open".
