Hello. I am a long-time user of Sony Vegas HD Movie Studio

Customer Question
Platinum Edition. I built myself...
Hello. I am a long-time user of Sony Vegas HD Movie Studio Platinum Edition. I built myself a new computer late last year and almost immediately purchased and installed HDMSP 11. It worked perfectly for the few months that I used it, so when 12 was released, I decided to upgrade. 12 also worked perfectly, at least for a couple months, at which point it suddenly decided to stop rendering literally anything. I will click on "Project > Render As..." and a dialog will pop up that says "An error occurred while creating the media file . Exception thrown by method called" exactly like that. I have been back and forth with customer support earlier this for an entire month, and they could not solve my issue. I uninstalled the software and was given a refund. I now have a very urgent need for the software so I installed the trial just to see if it suddenly decided to start working again, just like it had so suddenly decided to stop working earlier this year. Lo and behold, it still does not work. I am sick and tired of this and have been through almost literally hell and high water to fix this issue and nothing has worked. I am desperate now, I absolutely must have this software. It seems to be, from reading threads on your support forums by other users with the exact same problem, that the only solution is to reinstall Windows entirely, which I am unwilling to do just to get one program to work. Please help me, I am absolutely desperate.

Thanks for your question. My name is Richard and I look forward to assisting you.

I want to rule out any Registry or Hard Disk corruption that can cause this problem first please.

do the following please

Download CC Cleaner (free) from here

CC Cleaner

(Click Download Latest Version on the top right)

Run it and let it scan and repair your registry.

Once done, restart the computer

Than

Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and select Run As Administrator.

A black window will open.

Type in it

sfc /scannow

press enter and when it has completed, type in

chkdsk /f

Press enter.

It will give a message "the type of the file system is NTFS cannot lock current drive.
chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts y/n" Say Y, press enter and restart the computer.

Than try to render and let me know if you still get the error please.

Thank you

I have the latest version of QuickTime and all of the latest Windows updates.

Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 years ago
ok, in Movie Studio, go to Tools Scripting, Batch Rendering.

Choose from the list Video for Windows and check it so it is selected, and all the options in the tree.

Then unselect it please so it is cleared.

Then click the plus to the left of Winndows Media Video V11, and under it click on the box 4.8 mbps HD 720-24p Video.

Click OK and tell me if it now renders please.

Thank you

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I have looked through every single menu, including Tools, and I cannot find anything that says "Scripting" or "Batch Rendering."

Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 years ago
ok, then for you

When you go to Render As.

On that windows, do you see Customize Template button?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Normally yes I'm sure I do, but I can't see anything that would normally happen because when I click "Render As..." it immediately displays the error dialogue. Nothing else happens.

Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 years ago
ok, do the following please

Click Start, type in MSCONFIG and press enter.

Click on the Startup Tab and click Disable All.

Click on the Services Tab and click "Hide All Microsoft Services"

Then click Disable All

Click ok, restart and let me know if it now allows you to render please

Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 years ago
When exactly does the error come? At what exact point?
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I click the Project menu, and from that drop-down menu, I click "Render As..."


 


Right when I click "Render As...", the error happens.

Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 years ago
ok, download Revo Uninstaller please from

Ask Your Own Computer Question

The problem originally occurred starting in early November last year.


Sony customer support didn't start responding to my problem until early January of this year.

Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 years ago

Nope, still can't render.

Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 years ago
ok, then the Dynamic Link Libraries it needs from windows are corrupted.

We are going to need to perform a re-install of Windows Nathan, there is no way to avoid this sorry.

If you tell me the Brand of computer you have, I can tell you how to do this.

Let me know please

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I hope you understand my frustration - which is not with you, it's with the software - when I say that this is absolutely unbelievable. I pay good money for software that I thought would be my best option and all of a sudden I can't use it anymore and the only way to fix the problem is to reinstall my entire operating system. Absolutely absurd.


 


I know how to reinstall Windows, believe me I've done it many times before, but nonetheless my computer is custom built. The motherboard is an ASUS P8Z77-V, but I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for.

Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 years ago
Thanks, if its custom built you need to use the windows disk, else I would tell you the procedure on how to do it from the hidden partition.

It is absurd Nathan, 100% agree with you, but this is the issue with the software, and why I always advise on Avid, as opposed to this.

Avid has no where near the problems Movie Studio has.

But I am sorry, a reinstall is going to be necessary. Its the only way to resolve this.

If you have continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Yeah except that the only problem with Avid is that it costs nearly ten times what Movie Studio costs, and there's no way I could afford that right now.


 


Regardless, I will perform the reinstall on my own time, if I even decide to at all. The idea of reinstalling my entire operating system just to fix one little program still does not sit well with me.


 


Thank you very much for your time, I greatly appreciate it. Your service has been excellent and very efficient. However, since my problem is not resolved, I will not be charged for this, correct?

Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 years ago
You have already paid the deposit Nathan, and that was with me to work with you.

It is solved, you need to reinstall windows, there is no other way around this.

This is the solution.

But if you do not wish to pay for this, don't rate me and let me know you want a refund.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
