Vox ATC and Voice Buddy problems

Recommended Posts

I recently installed Vox Atc and voice Buddy . It also said i needed to download SAPI 5 SDK from the microsoft website which i did.Since I installed these programs i have had no end of FS crashes and computer reboots[only when FS is running].It gives me the error being an unknown device driver.I updated both the sound card and graphics card drivers and still had the problem. I have since uninstalled the 3 programs 2 days ago and the system is much more stable again as it was before which makes me think that this is whats causing the problem.Not sure if i should have installed the SAPI 5 SDK. Maybe it overwrote a system file.but it said it wont install if it was already on my system,so i installed it anway.Not particularly bothered that i cant use these programs Not very impressed with them.Wish id spent money on airports or something.Just wondered if anyone else has had these problems and is there a way to get them working properly.Many thanksAthlon AMD3200 processorNividia ffx5500 graphics card1GB RAMMaxtor 7200 150GB hard driveRealtek AC97 sound.

Richard, do you by any chance use RegistryFix or another registry cleaner? If so, it might have cleaned out some SAPI 5 SDK registry entries that it should have ignored. If so, reinstall, run your registry cleaner, and set the entries in question by hand to "ignore".Jaap Verduijn.

Hi Richard,It may just be that the two programs won't work together in FS2004. Did you try installing and running either of them separately on your computer? You do not need to install the SAPI 5 SDK with VoxATC as it is included in the install of VoxATC. For problems specific to VoxATC there is an unofficial forum for VoxATC here at Avsim as well as there own official support at support@voxatc.comI used to use a voice command program, I think it was gamevoice or something like that. I uninstalled it when I went to using VoxATC. Since both of these programs are looking for a sound to translate into some kind of CPU process I would imagine they don't work well together. I would recommend trying them both separately and see which type of program you prefer. As a real pilot I prefer VoxATC to keep me a little sharper with actually talking on the radio. For simming you might prefer having the ability to use voice commands to operate different keyboard actions within the sim itself.
