Vegas 7.0e locking up computer- how to go back to 7.0d

I recently upgraded to the new version of Vegas, 7.0e, and can no longer build peaks. The computer locks up trying to render the audio. I contacted Sony, but have received no reply. I am in the middle of a project and can't do it with this bug. Does anyone know how to go back to version 7.0d? Thanks.

Uninstall "e" and then reinstall "d".

I don't see an easy way to uninstall e without removing the whole program, and d isn't available on the Sony site anymore. Can you tell me a way to do this? Thanks.

You can find "d" on the Sony FTP site at http://download.sonymediasoftware.com/current/

Are those from the Sony FTP site only trials?

If you don't already have it, then yes, it is only a trial.
In Ruth's case though, she was looking to roll back to Vegas 7.0d from 7.0e and this is a way for her to do it.

Thanks, I hadn't found that link on Sony's information. I just went back to version 7.0d and everything is back to working fine. I guess I'll wait a bit on this upgrade, since for some reason it doesn't work right on my system. I really appreciate you sending that, I'm back in business!

Glad to hear that it worked for you Ruth.
I stumbled across the FTP site link on the Sony Vegas forum one day and decided to bookmark it "just in case" :-)

Your saving the link just in case was great news for me. Thanks! I was totally blocked by the "upgrade" so being able to go back to 7.0d was really important. I appreciate you getting back to me so fast here on the forum, too. I'm back at work now, thanks to you!

Ruth, has anyone in support gotten back to you?

What was your source-media type?

I finally got a reply from Sony today but their "workaround" was change the imported files from .m2t to .avi, but since I use elecard to view the files, I really don't want to start changing file extensions. I don't need AVCHD or the other upgrades with the 7.0e revision just now, so will stick to the older version until there is something in an upgrade I really need, and then hope it works by then.

I'm having this exact same problem, so if going back to 7.0d is the solution, then I'm game.

I don't understand what the problem is. That native .m2t files can't be imported into Vegas 7.0e because peaks are unable to be built?

I was working with Vegas 7.0a for awhile, but because I have a slow computer, I rendered all the .m2t files to a Cineform intermediary (.avi), which I then used to edit everything. Then I moved to Vegas 7.0e, still using the .avi files and everything seems to work fine. Are you guys saying that if I switched them back to the original .m2t files, Vegas 7.0e wouldn't work right?

That's how it worked for me. I had e installed, had problems building audio peaks, and so I went back to d, and now I have no problems.

I love how Vegas makes things so easy.

I dont understand how you un-install E. I tried to re-install D and it says to undo E but how without deleteing the whole program?

Thanks Joey
