In this tutorial we'll look at the process of installing our copy of Vegas Pro 12. It's not particularly difficult but I thought it worth walking through it for a sense of completeness. There's no point me talking about how to use Vegas Pro if you are one of the very few who struggled to install the program. So that all said let's get started. Now dependent on how you are running your copy of Vegas Pro 12 then you will have an option to either buy it and receive a serial number. Or if you just want to try it out first of all you can run Vegas Pro 12 as a 30 day trial. Whichever method you choose either way you'll need to set up the installation in the following way. So let me just talk you through how we install Vegas Pro 12. As soon as you double-click on the installation icon and dependent on how you have your system set up, this will likely be an EXE File an EXE File or possibly an install icon. So whichever method then you'll see this Welcome to Vegas Pro 12 Installation Wizard. And under here where it says please choose a language for this installation, well you'll get these five options to choose a particular language in which to run Vegas. Now of course I'm going to leave it on English and I suspect you'll be doing the same. So I'll click on Next and as expected we are then shown the end user license agreement. Notice the two radio buttons there. The top one is to agree that you have read the end user license agreement and agree to the terms. If you select the second option there that you don't agree, then you won't be able to get any further with this installation. So of course I'll click on the first radio button there and then now you would read through the end user license agreement. I'll just quickly scroll down. Okay. I'll pretend I've read it now. Of course you will take your time by reading through this end user license agreement. And I'll just click on Next which now takes me to this next splash screen where I can choose where I want to install Vegas Pro 12 on my hard drive. As it happens I'm going to leave it at the default there in Program Files. But of course if you clicked on Change then you can locate your installation where you want it to be located. Additionally also notice the checkbox there. Well, I'm going to select that because I do want to create a shortcut on my desktop so that I can easily start the program. Okay. Then I'll hit Install and instantly Vegas runs the installation process. This can take a little while as it states there, this can take several minutes. But once the process has done, then you'll see this message that Vegas Pro 12 has been successfully installed. So I'll click on Finish. Now I expect at this stage you were thinking that this would be the end of the installation process. But no not quite. We now have to register our copy of Vegas Pro 12. So ensuring I'm connected to the Internet, I'll click on Next and now we get the option to either run the trial version of Vegas Pro 12 by clicking the first radio button. Or if you've already purchased it then just enter your serial number there. Just simply enter the serial number in the second option with the field to add your serial number. So of course you choose what you are going to do. Either the trial or enter your serial number dependent on whether you are evaluating it first or if you have already decided to buy it. Okay. Fairly straightforward. Regardless whichever method you have chosen the next thing you'll see is this splash screen stating that we must register Vegas Pro 12 to use it. And so now we get two more options here, either to register online and that's why I wanted to make sure I am connected to the Internet. Or we could register from another computer. We'd only choose the second option there if the PC that you are working on and installing Vegas Pro on never gets connected to the Internet. Now I'm going to choose the first one to register online, I find it much easier. So I click Next and now Sony wants us to provide some registration information. All the fields there that are bold are required, the other fields aren't compulsory. So I'll just fill in my E-mail address and the country. There are two more checkboxes at the bottom, the top one there if you check in that, then you are declaring to Sony that you want to periodically receive all news and information from them. Now this might very well be about Vegas Pro or it might be about partner programs such as Sound Forge or DVD Architect. Now I'll leave that unchecked and the second option checkbox. Well that is just acknowledging that I have read and agreed with the terms laid down by Sony Creative Software. So I'll click Finish and we get this splash screen now from Sony thanking us for registering Vegas Pro 12. And once done then by going to your shortcut on the desktop, well at least that is where I set mine up. If not you'll have to use your Start Menu and find the program. But I've used the shortcut that I placed on my desktop. Double-clicked it and here is Vegas Pro running. And it's as easy as that to install your copy of Vegas Pro 12.
