Error Occurred While Starting Vegas Pro

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi, everyone! I am in need of serious help! I started using Sony Vegas Pro 9 recently, and it has been working fine until today.

When I opened it up it and got this error message:

Vegas Pro Error

An error occurred starting Vegas Pro.

The TWAIN manager could not be initialized. TWAIN_32.dll missing or corrupt.

I tried downloading Twain_32.dll.  It still does the same thing.  Any ideas as to how to fix this will be much appreciated!

Major cause of this error is that your dll file is deleted or corrupt. Try following to resolve this issue.
1. If you deleted this dll file mistakenly, try to recover this file from the recycle bin. If it is permanently deleted use recovery software.
2. This error can also be caused by a virus infection. Run a full scan of your system using an up to date antivirus.
3. Restore your system to some early stage at which your system were working fine.
4. May be your windows is not up to date. Run a windows update process and install all recommended updates.
5. There can be a problem in your registry. There are many software available which you can use to clean your registry.

The solution to your Sony Vegas Pro 9, just simply you need to put this code: Twain_32.dll to your Sony Vegas Pro 9 in the folder, and then before put the Code inside the folder, first thing you must do is trying to uninstall first the Sony Vegas Pro 9 to your machine, after that make sure that all file deleted, and 2nd is just simply reinstall it again in your PC, then try to put code in to the Sony Vegas Pro 9 folder and then attempt to restart your unit and after you restart the machine try to run the Sony Vegas Pro 9.

First, try searching your system drive for that file to verify if it is missing or not. The file “twain_32.dll” is located in “C:WINDOWSsystem32dllcache” and in “C:WINDOWS”. You should be able to find that DLL file in those two locations. If the file is not there then probably it got deleted by accident. If it is there but you get the error on your program, it is probably damaged.

There are two ways to fix the file. First is to run SFC to restore the original file and remove the corrupted file. Second is to download the DLL file from the net. You should try first running SFC on your computer. To do this, click Start, Run, and then type without quotes “cmd” then press Enter.

In the command prompt, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then press Enter. This method scans all protected system files on your computer and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This is the best approach to your problem. This method requires your Windows setup CD. When you are prompted, insert your Microsoft Windows setup CD on your CD/DVD drive.

In case you don’t have your Windows setup CD, you can download the file from the web. Download the DLL file from Twain_32.dll File Download. On the download page, select the MANUAL FIX. The file is available in two versions: version and version To make sure, download both files. Once downloaded, unpack one of the ZIP files.

Copy the DLL file to the installation folder of the application requesting it. In your case, copy the file to the installation folder of Vegas Pro. After this, restart Vegas Pro and see if there is still an error. If this doesn’t work, copy the file to the locations I mentioned above and also to “C:WINDOWSsystem32” then restart Vegas Pro.

If this doesn’t work either, try the other ZIP file and repeat the steps in copying the DLL file.
