I recently had need to use this application for the first time in a couple of weeks. When I tried to start Vegas 8, the application failed with an error:
Internet Explorer Script Error
Automation server can’t create object
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?
Quite annoying. I tried many things including restarting the machine, uninstalling and reinstalling Vegas, Manually deleting all registry keys for the program, nothing worked.
Since this error is related to some browser related issue, I reduced all security options in IE7 to their minimum, but this also failed to resolve the issue. Finally, I uninstalled IE7. Success!

Of course, if you are afflicted with the problem called “Vista” you are pretty much screwed. There are NO visible patches or updates for this issue coming from Sony.
IE7 and IE8 are pretty much on us now, and we’ll struggle to be without them soon. Let’s just hope that these companies can get their act together and resolve the problems, before I switch to another application or platform.
