Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.What program is 'AP', please ? I'm not sure, though I could guess it was Adobe Photoshop. What version of AP is on the disk, please? read the disk label to see the version, and also, what Windows versions it is compatible with.

Disk is a Nuance Dragon Naturally Speaking Recorder Edition Version 13.01
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Awaiting your response
Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 3 years ago
OK, thanks for the information. Dragon Naturally Speaking version 13.01 is compatible with the following Windows versions: Unfortunately, after some research, it is evident that version 13 of Dragon is not compatible with Windows Vista. Page 18 of this User Guide to Dragon version 13 specifically states the Windows compatibility to start with Windows 7:http://www.nuance.com/ucmprod/groups/corporate/@web-enus/documents/collateral/dns13_userguide.pdf I don't know what to suggest. This is not a case where you can set Compatibility Mode - that function only works toward earlier versions.It seems you need to get an earlier version of Dragon Naturally Speaking, one that still had compatibility with Windows Vista. Either that, or get a Windows 7 install onto your computer, perhaps.Let me know what you would like to pursue on this matter. Thanks.

Thank you
Tech Support Specialist: Russell H., Computer Systems Expert replied 3 years ago
To repeat: Nuance's Dragon software, in version 13, cannot be installed and run, on Windows Vista. Only on Windows 7 or later. Would you like to pursue either getting Dragon version 12? ... I could research a source... or Windows 7 ? ...if so, let me know the model of your Toshiba computer.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
