Dragon + VC crashing

Hi,

I’m seeing a lot of crashes that look like this.

Ideas?

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

Years ago, RPC errors were common in Dragon…

What version of Dragon are you using?

  1. Create a new Dragon user profile.
  2. Uninstall/reinstall Dragon
  3. Reconfigure VoiceComputer

Let us know!

Sounds like another problem with the Dragon Garbage Fire. I’m using version 15.3. I hesitate to follow these steps, because I have to tweak the software so often, which really messes with productivity. At the moment, it seems easier to just live with the crashes, and restart Dragon + Voice Computer.

I get another type of crash where Dragon and VC remain open, or sometimes just VC remains open, but there is no response to voice commands.

This happens often when I open a folder on my data HD (not my C drive, which is just program files). I hear the drive spin up, and Dragon/VC just freeze.

Any clues? So far, the only fix is Control + Alt + Delete and restarting both and/or reboot.

The delay in opening the HD could cause a crash.
Do the Intags open and then close?
Close the Intags before you open the HD.
This may be a workaround.
Let us know!

I don’t think that is the issue, as I am not seeing Intags appear before the crash.
