Philips SpeechMike Executive V3.2 wont run in Vista

My company uses SpeechMike Executive V3.2 and we're stuck with it. Philips do not provide an update for running it in Vista. I have a new notebook running Vista and SpeechMike wont run on it. I get the error message "Internal error on creating Application catched before MFC could do it". I have tried altering the compatibilty settings alternately to XP, 2000 and 98 without success. I have even tried to setup a dual boot with XP but the drivers don't exist to run this notebook with XP. Any suggestions on how to get this software working with Vista would be appreciated. where can i download the upgrade 390? i didnt find it on the philips website. please help!!

SOURCE: Boot error / No video out


The beeps are usually due to RAM or key board issues.

I would try by plugging it into a VGA socket of a monitor to see if it works.

Do you have heat problems? one suggestion is to try and reset the bios to default by moving the jumper on the mobo to do a hard reset.

good luck

SOURCE: ASUS notebook gone inactive

It is possible that you switched off the internal video display, enabling the external adapter. If this is the case, you should be able to plug in an external monitor, get your display back, and change monitors back to the internal one via software (display properties).

SOURCE: Asus p5w DH Deluxe: updated to new bios 2704 now only black screen on boot up

brophylad,You sound like you know your way around a PC so please do not be offended by the suggestions below that you may already be aware of to begin with.

Use the PC your are using to communicate with us and download the older bios and create a bootable floppy or CD, Nero's bootable image is best as it recognizes NT partitions, and try flashing with the old bios. Otherwise, when I've had a board on the bench with this issue I've had to get a replacement bios chip which is rather easy to replace or Asus has replaced the board for me under warranty or for a rather fair price to replace with a refurbished board.

Anyway, try this again: remove the button battery and turn off the rocker switch on your Power Supply and remove the power cable. Leave all this disconnected for several minutes. Re-insert the battery, reattach the power cable and turn the rocker switch back on and attempt a bootup. If this fails to get you to a bios setup screen the CMOS chip has failed, permanently or is glitched, with the later being my guess.

Phone Asus at 502-995-9883 and have the serial number for your board, located on the inside of the case on top of the parallel port socket. I've phoned them many times over the years and they are quick. They'll most likely will give you a post bypass keyboard sequence if there is one for your model or give you a RMA immediately. I've never found Asus slow to replace a board from the RMA department.

The above phone number is for tower boards, for notebooks (they make great notebooks and sell white boxes as notebooks) call 510-739-3777 x5110.

Best Regards and good luck,

Where do I download a driver for Philips Speechmike Classic 6264 that can be used with Windows 7?

Unfortunately I cannot find any references to driver installation for versions of Windows beyond Windows XP. The possibly means the hardware is not natively compatible with Windows 7. You can try installing the Windows XP driver using either compatability mode or if push comes to shove you can use the XPMode virtual machine to run the device in a true Windows XP environment with Windows 7 Virtual PC. I would contact Philips customer support for more information.

With have Dell Optiplex 780 PC and have problems

It's known! The bad news is that the only way to make sure the device is recognized is to attach it through an external USB-hub (it requires 300 mA continuosly, and you can only trust the PC to allways deliver 100 mA - allthough USB 2.0 must be able to deliver 500 mA at occassions).

You should also disable any other sound devices, like built in Realtek, SoundMax etc.....

My windows vista crashed and I had to reinstall it. All my programs were erased with the reinstall and so I am now reinstalling my speechexec pro transcribe, but it is rejecting it saying the serial no. is...

Philips SpeechExec Pro Transcribe doesn't have a serial number type licensing; it uses Dongle or SmartKey licensing, a physical device attached to a USB port on your machine.
However, if your software was version 5, and you had a SmartKey license (it is black, like a memory stick, with a red barcode), you might have downloaded the license from the SmartKey to your PC, an option which is handy to release a USB port, but which obviously proves costly if your PC crashes.

If this is the case, uninstall the software, and reinstall it; during re-installation, choose to run the SmartKey Wizard, and make sure your SmartKey is connected to the PC; the Wizard will recognise that your license has been downloaded, but it will give you a 30 days grace, during which you can use the software. Incidentally the Colour of the LED on the SmartKey will change from Amber to Red.

You then need to contact your Philips equipment provider, and explain that your PC crashed and you lost the SmartKey license in the disaster; if they are proper suppliers (MDCi or MDCe), they will ask you to send the SmartKey, and will send you a new one...

I hope this helps!!

Won't playback or transcribe

2 things to check:
1. is the speechmike set as default playback device: go to Control Panel--> Sounds and Audio Devices; and in the opening window, go under the Audio tab; in the Sound Playback, the default device should be set to SpeecMike II if you want the sound to come out of the SpeechMike.
2. Playback volumes: still in the same tab, click the Volume button of the default device; it opens a set of volume controls; you need to ensure that for the WAVE, and Speaker (or Volume Control), the Mute box isn't ticked; you also want to set this volume to something not equal to zero (i.e. move the cursor up to at least 1/3 of the level).

I hope this helps.
