Sony Vegas Pro Error Message When Downloading

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello, Everyone!

I am trying to download the Sony Vegas Pro 10.0 on my laptop. 

I keep getting an error message saying that I need Windows XP Service Pack 3. 

I already have this! 

Why am I getting this?  Is it possible something is wrong with my operating system? 

Has anyone else had this problem?

I appreciate any help I get!

Maybe you have the unofficial version and non stable version of service pack 3 that's why you're getting that error.

Solution 1:

Install a service pack 2 in your computer and then update the operating system to service pack. It will give you more stability than doing it this way. And you will identify at least that what you are installing is a good one.

Solution 2:

Try upgrading to a much later version of operating system. Possibly windows 7, it is stable and also has a lot of software support, it is a sure okay after you installed the Sony vegas pro in this operating system.
