I have a problem that is driving me crazy. I have a problem with an interaction between my dictation program, Dragon Professional, and SmartSDR. It has occurred with every version of Dragon and SmartSDR and any combination of the two – over quite a few years now. If I install SmartSDR first, Dragon cannot find its mic input. If I install Dragon first, I get the error message I have pasted below. I dread upgrading either program. I just upgraded SmartSDR to version 2.2.8. I have learned the only way to solve this error is to install Dragon first, so I left it in place when I upgraded SmartSDR. I’m back to the error message you see below. The only way I have been able to solve it is simply by trial and error method. I have learned if I uninstall SmartSDR and all its drivers and then reinstall everything, I might’ve solved the problem. I have done that three times so far with the new update and still haven’t solved the problem. I will continue to do that and I’m sure I will solve the problem, but it usually takes me a day or more of my time and that much time off the air. I know there are many of you out there who are much more literate in computers that I am. My guess is there is some problem at a very fundamental level. I say that because SmartSDR destroys Dragon’s ability to find its input and vice versa. Oh, before I go this problem has appeared with two different desktop computers and three different laptops. Anyone got any suggestions before I go crazy – grin.
