  df118 11:28 08 Mar 04

when I try to open "Natually Speaking" on my computer I get the message soemthing like I have C:\windows\System\riched20.dll version 5.3011.2410, and naturally speaking needs version . this programme WAS running quite happily until my recent messup; I have put in the original CD and done a repair job with a partial reinstall of the programme when I tried to restart the programme after the computer finally decided to allow the programme to reapear, but now I am stuck with this problem...any offers?????
am running windows98

I should sort out your sfc and registry 1st, then worry about prog files.

still begs the question as to how to solve the Naturally Speaking problem.....unless it has to be reinstalled, or has been affected by a bug on the system as hav yet to get the courage to load nd run the bug programme.....

Not seen any other problems that you may have yet, but MichelleC offers good advice - sort out any other problems you have with the registry first.

Then, why not export all user files from Dragon and then uninstall the entire program, reinstalling afterwards?

"then why not export all user files from Dragon and then...."....how please...... and where do I put them, and how do I get them back from whense they go?????what do you mean BY " user files"????

Open Dragon then on the Dragon bar go to "Naturally Speaking" then "manage users" and "Advanced" then "Export" and follow the instructions.

Importing is the reverse and simply save the files on say the desktop for easy access.
