A little help...?

Post by CBarca on Sat May 05, 2012 6:04 am

So basically I'm going to have to make a small 10 minute movie for Spanish soon, so I was checking up to see if the movie maker I use (Sony Vegas 8.0) is on my computer...and I search for it and find a bunch of folders full of shortcuts that don't exist anymore.

Yet when I went to the control panel and went to 'Uninstall Programs' (which will list like, ALL the useful programs you have that you can uninstall) I see Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 8.0 right there. I even have Sony DVD Architect studio to go with it- and that currently works.

So I'm a bit confused, while the control panel says I have it, I can't find it in the computer whenever I search for it.

I'm forced to concede that it most likely doesn't exist at this point, but then why would the control panel say it does (and subsequently say it takes up 156 MB of space?)

Anybody have any clue? I guess I'm going to spend some time looking for the box now....but I don't want to if it's installed on here (which it should be given I used it a year ago and nothings happened since then)

Thanks in advance guys.

Sounds like the program got deleted but there's still files, folders and registry files left behind. I've had that happen before, if you don't use the uninstaller, the program still has registry files and what not on your PC.

If you want the program removed from the uninstall list, try deleting the files and folders left behind from it in explorer, and if you have a registry cleaner run that(like CCleaner). You can remove the registry files manually if you know what you're doing, but if not just use CCleaner and it shouldn't show up anymore in the Programs list.

Have you tried checking in Program Files just in case it felt like changing its name or something?

Sony vegas is majorly focused on cut & edit. If you want visuals then Adobe is way to go.
