Sounds like one of the plugins got hosed, or a new one got installed that is incompatible.

For starters, find your "Shared Plug-Ins" folder (location varies with OS), and try renaming the plugins one at a time until Vegas starts. Then you could leave the offending plugin renamed and reinstall from the installation disc.

Glad to hear it.

A habit I acquired a long time back in Sonic Foundry days --

Every time I do a SMS install, upgrade, or add plugins, I back up the Shared Plug-Ins folder. That way, I've got something to go back to in case of an unintentional deletion or muck-up like what happened to you.
