Good morning, Ron,
First, the VC microphone always executes from the Program Files (x86)
C:Program Files (x86)VoiceTeachVoiceComputerscriptsVoiceComputer Microphone.exe
Therefore, when you uninstall the previous version of VoiceComputer and install the most current version, you always have the most current generation of the VC microphone.
Second, when you uninstall the previous version of VoiceComputer that contains the VoiceComputer microphone, you are prompted to close it (icon in the systray) first. Since the VC microphone is always executed from the VoiceComputer program files as noted above, you needn’t worry about it. That is, you’re always getting the current generation executable.
The shortcut icon on the desktop and the icon in the system tray, which enables it, always call it and enable it from the above location. The long and the short of it is that it takes care of itself.
Still, if you’re concerned about it, all you have to do is right-click on the VoiceComputer microphone in the systray and click “Close”, then double-click on the shortcut icon on the desktop to reenable it.
Lastly, when you install the new version of VoiceComputer, unless you reboot your computer, the VoiceComputer microphone icon is not automatically loaded in the systray. Therefore, in order to enable it after install, you simply click on the VoiceComputer microphone shortcut so that VoiceComputer enables the VC microphone by placing the icon in the systray.Chucker2014-08-13 07:40:27
Thank you, Chucker:
Thanks for the email with a link to VoiceComputer 13.05. Are there any major changes from version 13.02?
VoiceComputer 13.05 works with the new DragonBar and some documentation for DNS 13. More will follow.
I am not using the new DragonBar, but I may give it a try again.
Viv et al.,
I’ve been testing the New DragonBar with VoiceComputer 13.05. And it works in all cases.
The only issue that we have to correct in the next release, and which is minor even if confusing, is that with the New DragonBar when you shutdown VoiceComputer and Dragon you will get a warning message that VoiceComputer only works with the Classic DragonBar. You can ignore this because it does in fact work in terms of closing Dragon, saving your user profile, and properly shutting down both Dragon and VoiceComputer. Chucker2014-08-19 05:38:48
