PLEASE HELP ME BEFORE I THROW THIS DAMN THING OUT THE WINDOW!!!
No need to panic. I would first make sure there's enough space on the drive you're rendering to. Then I would try a different small video, and see if you can render it to one of Vegas's presets and see if it works. If not, I would uninstall Vegas, remove any Sony Vegas folders in Windows explorer and reinstall Vegas. If your version of Vegas ever worked on that computer, a re-install should help.
