Hi, I need a little help with my installation of Vegas.

 

So I have it on a desktop computer, but I recently bought a "laptop" (its similar to the microsoft surface laptops) that I want to also install it on. The issue is, the laptop doesn't have a disc drive, and I can't find a download link because its an older program at this point. Is there any way I can install it (or at least use it off a USB) by using the files on the desktop? Both computers are running Windows 8.1.

 

Note that I still have access to my serial key, so that's not an issue.

You should be able to copy the contents of the Vegas install disk to a USB flash drive and then attach it to your laptop. Double click the installer file on the USB flash drive.

 

Edit: Is the Vegas disk copy protected?

Turns out somebody in my house has also moved my disc. So I'm basically out of luck unless somebody has a copy of the install file.

 

Also yes, I think it was a protected disc.

You can always go to the free open source OpenShot. I have no experience with this software though.
