Sony Vegas HD Studio 10 installer bug

Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.0

If you get a TEMP dir not writable error, like one of these:


DO NOT CLICK OK.

If you click OK on this error message, it will delete other files that are in the same directory as the installer.

Instead, close the program using the task manager


How to fix it?
Open My Computer, right click your hard disk, then choose properties.
Click Disk Cleanup.


If you did click OK, then you may have lost some files.

Check the folder where the installer was, it might have deleted files when you clicked OK. if you lost anything important, then you should immediately turn off your computer, take out the hard drive, and use an un-delete program another computer to recover the data.


This issue affects both the trial and the full versions of Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.

I reported this problem to them in July 2010. They have yet to fix it.
