Question about IBM ViaVoice Standard Millennium Edition 1 (11K6157) for Mac

1 Answer

Uninstall ViaVoice 98 Home Edition.

I just bought ViaVoice 98 Home Edition at a garage sale for only 7 dollars, (I know...whatta snag right??...WRONG). I have a 2003 Toshiba Labtop and when first trying to download ViaVoice, I received this error message: "Setup detected that the IBM Speech Engine is running. Please close all speech applications and then press continue." After going through my WHOLE computer, I STILL can't figure out how to install this thing.

NOW all I want to do is delete it from my computer completely. But it will not let me!! Please help!

When I click 'Change/Remove' Via Voice from 'Add or Remove programs' in Control Panel, it gives me this message; "IBM Speech Engine is Running. Please close all speech applications before uninstalling." HOW AND WHERE DO I CLOSE SPEECH APPLICATIONS??

For the love of everything good in this world. PUH-LEASE GET THIS SOFTWARE OFF OF MY COMPUTER!

Digital camera

The short answer to that is - you can't. Without some kind of brand name, unless you're lucky enough when you plug it in for Windows to actually say what it is, you're not going to have any luck. If it just says "That's a digital camera, where's the drivers?", well, you know why it was in the garage sale.
