Hello, I am a new member to the website looking for an answer to a perplexing problem. I addressed members of the video editing community I belong to and it was suggested that i come here to try and find an answer. My problem is with a software application hanging at the start. Here are the questions I posed to others looking for a possible solution: Things were fairly smooth until of late. The program (Vegas Pro 11) wants to hang at start leaving me sit here and wait. Like waiting for a bus that never shows. I have to reboot the computer to get it to go again every time... I close out of the program and when clicking it on again it gets to Initializing external monitor and here we sit. Anyone have a clue to what is happening here? I sure don't. I tried uninstall and reinstall to no answer. I ran the registry tool in CCleaner after running chkdsk. It shows no problems. VP10 opens with no problems. I put a ticket into SC in hopes they might be able to help. As it is I can only run one instance of Vegas 11. Is there a procedure to uninstall and then get a clean install? I since did a complete uninstall and clean reinstall yet the program still reacts the same. It loads one time after restart if I go there first right after I went to eventviewer and came across a few errors and warnings that I copied. I have not a clue what to do with them. They may be a bit much to post here, but I will if allowed. I did come across an answer to make the error code go away but not the problem. Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks.
