Voice Clicking Software - Not for 64-bit OS

Post by junkatagirinp » Sat Jan 21, 2012 1:21 pm

Hello,

I am a bit disappointed to find that the Voice Clicking software from Naturalpoint, the CD-Rom I have just purchased through online, cannot be installed on the 64-bit Windows 7 PC.

Can there be a fix or perhaps an alternate version I can download from somewhere?

Thank you.

Hello -

Make sure the disk is in your CD drive
Go to your start menu, then click on �computer�
Right click on your cd drive, and click �open�
Double click the speech folder
Right click �setup.exe� and select properties
Click on the compatibility tab, then check the box labeled �run this program in compatibility mode for:�. Select �Windows XP (Service Pack 3)� from the dropdown.
Click �ok� at the bottom of the window to close.
Double click �setup.exe� to run the installer.

Hello,

I am having this very same problem. I purchased the separate CD for voice clicking. I uninstalled the older non voice version and drivers. The voiceclick CD does not autorun so I opened the folder and ran the autorun.exe which gave me the smartnav software installation window. I installed the new software. Then I clicked on "Install Voice Recognition Software." I get the little hourglass (working) for five seconds, then nothing happens. When I click on "Use Speech Recognition" in the smartnav settings I still get the "Speech Recognition could not be initialized....ensure IBM ViaVoice speech recognition is installed..." error window.

I tried clicking the "run this program in compatability mode for Windows XP SP 3" box and run as administrator, but it does the same thing (hourglass for 5 seconds, then nothing). Is there anything else that I can do? I really need this to work. I am using Windows 7 SP 1 64 bit OS.

Thanks,
Walt

Walt,

I am seeing the same problem. I will be trying to tackle the install problem on my laptop tonight to see if I can get it working. I'll let you know what I find out.

Thanks! I really appreciate it. I'm hoping that voice clicking will be the last piece to my hands free puzzle.

SystemPerformance,

Still working on this. I am making progress but haven't gotten it worked out just yet.
