Unhappy Sony Vegas Installation Issue

This is a bit of a long story, so get ready. I have disclosed as much information as I can think of, if you need more info or have a solution, please reply below! Thanks!

So a while back, I installed Sony Vegas Pro 16 to my computer on an external hard drive ( The D: Drive). Recently, the hard drive failed, and the program files for Sony Vegas were on that drive. When I try to reinstall vegas to my PC, it responds with an error message stating that Sony Vegas is already installed. I went to Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a Program, and found VEGAS Pro 16.0. Naturally, I tried uninstalling it, which it responded with an error message "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor". I cannot figure out how to fix this, so I would appreciate your support!

Just some additional info:
Sony Vegas Pro 16.0
I have tried cleaning the registry
Windows 10

If you made it to here, thank you for your time. If you have a solution or idea to this issue, please let me know ASAP. Thanks!

Is there not a repair/reinstall option available when launching the installer? I can only suggest that you contact their support or online community for help.

Also, It's no longer Sony... Another company bought Vegas from them.

Try Revo Uninstaller. Might have missed some reg files or something.

In situations such as that I manually go through the registry and remove all references to the problematic program. This may also be helpful in removing the program installer:
