Please help, Preview Window disappeared.

Hi,

The preview window just went away after a restart of my computer. As you can see from the screenshot, I selected View---> Window---> Video Preview, yet no success. What am I doing wrrong?

Thanks!

Re: Please help, Preview Window disappeared.

Do you have a second monitor? Have you tried moving the edges of Preset and Explorer windows around?

I do have 2 other monitors connected, but that's not the problem. I tried moving the edges around, no luck. I finally got it to reappear by View---> Window Layouts---> Default Layout.

Thanks,

Re: Please help, Preview Window disappeared.

Update:

After doing the above, I was able to restore the Preview Window. However, after just a few minutes, an error message popped up indicating that Vegas has stopped working. I checked the box to send the data to Vegas. I don't expect any resolution by Vegas/Magix. This forum is better.

Another interesting bit of info, every time I restart Vegas, the Preview Window was not there. I had to recheck Default Layout.

Anyways after the 4th "Vegas has stopped working" message, I captured a screenshot of the exact wordings. Can any of you guys make out what they mean?

Thank you!!

That error message appears to be related to your video driver.
