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.

    i HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM.  One helpful philips reseller techniocal department tried the speechmike 3 software on their vista and reported it was running perfectly.  they could not replicate the p roblem.  Could it be the way that some vista machines are set up?
    Philips cannot assist as they are not supporting 3.x any more
    Anyone have the solution?

    Same problem but with the SpeechMike Pro Plus - looks more like a 64bit Vista problem. I think the XP driver will work OK with 32 bit Vista. A lot of laptops are coming out with 64bit flavor :(

I had trouble initially with the same error message as deedee 222 8 and cannot give exact instructions. Try intalling old version, uninstall and then install upgrade 390 from Philips web site. I had to restart 3 times to get rid of an error messge on boot up but then it worked!

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.

Loss of words during reording

I suggest that you allow little more silent time before pressing the pause or stop. also when you start regording again let it go for a second or two and then start talking.

you may also tap the mic pefore starting speaking, performers always tap the mic pefore starting to make sure its working.

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.
