I'm trying to install Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Suite 10. I would ask on the sony forums, but they are complete idiots with their impossibly complicated registration process for the forums (telling you your zipcode is wrong but not giving you a place to actually give it to them, or telling you need a computer ID number when you can't find it unless you install the software...which won't install).
Anyway, I try to install it on windows 7 Home Edition 64bit, and there's a problem with Microsoft Visual C++ 2005. It says it needs to install the service pack for it, but when I click to install it via the Sony software, it says "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click Ok to try again or enter alternative path to a folder containing the installation package 'vcredist.msi' in the box below."
I read around and others have this problem, so they uninstall c++ 2005 and reinstall it and it tends to work for them. Well, I can't uninstall it and start over as it needs the same file to uninstall it. Catch22.
I downloaded a vcredist.msi file from rapidshare, but it didn't work. I can't find just that file on the MS site. There's a vcredist.exe, but I think you have to some how extract it from that, but it won't work. I can't do anything with this. Thanks in advance for any help.
