.Net and Sony Vegas RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently I had trouble installing 4.0 because it wouldn't update properly. I uninstalled all the .net programs I could find in my "uninstall programs" in the control panel. Eventually I was able to update 4.0 successfully.

    My problem now is that when I try to run Sony Vegas 10.0, it tells me:

    "An error has occurred during the current operation.

    Microsoft .NET runtime could not be initialized.


    DETAILS:  failed to initialized the common language runtime engine. Please install the .NET Framework (Download is available from Windows update)

    "

    Now I already have 4.0 installed. I figured I might need 3.0.

    So I go to install the 3.0 .NET framework and it tells me I already have a higher version installed.

    I am not sure what to do now.

  • What version of Windows?

    The correct way to proceed depends on your Windows version.

    From what you said in your post, I'll guess you have XP.

    You cannot install .NET Framework 3.0 if you don't have 2.0 installed.

    .NET Framework 2.0/3.0/3.5 is all ONE framework. 2.0 is the base, full, framework, and 3.0 and 3.5 are extensions of 2.0.

    If you have XP and really removed all frameworks, you should use this cumulative update to install 2.0/3.0/3.5 through 3.5 SP1:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/e/20e90413-712f-438c-988e-fdaa79a8ac3d/dotnetfx35.exe

    If you don't have XP, do not attempt the above.

  • You cannot install .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5 on your Windows 7 because it's ALREADY THERE.

    If you have Windows 7, you didn't remove any .NET Frameworks other than 4.0 unless you had 1.0 or 1.1 installed.

    Windows 7 installs .NET Framework 2.0/3.0/3.5 through 3.5 SP1 (all ONE framework) as an integral part of the OS. You cannot remove it through Add/Remove...

    To see the integral framework:

    Control Panel->Programs and Features->Turn Windows features on and off...

    In the Windows Features dialog find the entry Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1. You can expand that node to ensure all subfeatures are turned on.

    To verify .NET Frameworks on your system, use this tool:

    ONLY if the verification tool reveals issues, use this technique to "fix" the integral framework:

  • What log?

    When I run the verifier on my Win 7 machine, I see the results of each verification in the GUI.

    It finds and verifies the embedded frameworks.

    Please rerun the tool and follow this part of the instructions:

    "

    By default, the .NET Framework setup verification tool will only list versions of the .NET Framework that it detects are installed on the computer that it is being run on. As a result, the tool will not list all of the above versions of the .NET Framework. This product filtering can be overridden by running the .NET Framework setup verification tool with the following command line switch:

    netfx_setupverifier.exe /q:a /c:"setupverifier.exe /a"

  • Okay, sorry for the late response. I was out for the weekend.

     

    I used the "netfx_setupverifier.exe /q:a /c:"setupverifier.exe /a"

    and tool said it succeeded. Now what?

  • Succeeded?

    What framework versions did it find and verify?

    Is this the software in question?

    http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/vegaspro/techspecs

    If you have successfully verified .NET Framework 3.5 on your system, you should ask Sony tech support:

    http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/support/technicalsupport.asp

    They also have forums:

    http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/forums/default.asp

    I also note that Sony chooses not to include the .NET Framework required in their technical specs. Ask them.
