Now run Sony Vegas installer and stop it when showing the
request of installation/downloading of Visual C++ 2005 Redistribuitable
and .NET Framework 3
NOT close the installer!!
Now go to drive_c (or your wine dir installation) > Program Files
> Sony Setup > Vegas Pro 8.0 and launch the msi Sony Vegas installer
"vegas80_enu.msi" with the short command:
wine start vegas80_enu.msi
From Program Files > Sony Setup > Vegas Pro 8.0 launch the file
Now you can close the installer
Sony Vegas require a Windows XP dll to work (implemented in Wine
but it presents lacks), copy "msvfw32.dll" from Windows > System32
folder or download from the internet (http://www.dll-files.com or similar websites) and paste to wine dir installation > System32 and set them to native
To set as native open winecfg ("wine winecfg") from terminal, go
to "Libraries" and above "New override for library" type "msvfw32",
click "Add" then click "Edit", check "Native (Windows)" and press "OK",
click to "Apply" and close Wine Config
Run Sony Vegas Pro 8, enjoy and report issues to wine AppDB
What does not
##### Known issues #####
Sony Vegas start with the error: "An error occurred starting Sony Vegas. Failed to register with windows terminal services". UPDATE!! Go to Program Files > Sony > Vegas Pro 8.0 and edit the file "ErrorReportConfig.xml", at the line "enabled" change the value from "yes" to "no".
You can not drag the Video Preview and other elements of the main window
Sony ProType Titler
is not working due to malfunction of some components of the .NET
With Compiz enabled the Startup screen, transparent images and icons have a black background. UPDATE!! Icons transparency now works fine, update Wine.
Problem with text alignment and break line in Sony Text Generator, other problem with Media generators
What was not tested
Capture video in action
- The folder "Program Files" can be localized in your language
- Vegas requires also Windows Media Player to be able to export/import Windows Media video and audio, to get it: "winetricks wmp10" or install Windows Media Runtime redistributable.
- Rendering works better then Windows virtualization!
