Failed to launch Vegas Pro 11 due to .NET runtime initialization error
I have been unsuccessfully trying to run the Vegas Pro 11 I installed for about 5 days now. Every effort on my part to troubleshoot this issue has been useless. As soon as I try to open up the application, I get this error message reporting a failure to initialize the .NET runtime. I tried downloading the latest .NET Framework from Microsoft for Vegas Pro and this did not help by cause any further. I am logged in as admin on this windows Vista machine, but I tried right clicking the program shortcut and choosing the Run as Administrator option. Again, I had no luck. Then I tried uninstalling the Vegas Pro and performed a clean boot of my system by running the system configuration utility to disable all Microsoft services. Again I attempt to reinstall the application. Again the installation reports no errors. However, opening Vegas Pro still results in this error. I tried repairing permissions and uninstalling and reinstalling the application a couple of times. I have exhausted all possibilities. Can someone come up with a better idea to solve this problem? I am all ears. Thanks a million to whoever helps me with a fix.
