Dragon Naturally Speaking 13 not installing on Windows 7 64 bit machine.
Nuance says Version 13 is compatible with Windows 7 64 bit. BUT:
First I got this restart message:
A reboot may now be necessary. We recommend you restart your computer and then launch the Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 installer again.
Do you want to proceed with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking13 installation now, without restarting?
(if you have already restarted more than once, click "Yes" to proceed.)
I restarted but the same issue arose AGAIN. So I proceeded to "Yes", filled in the Serial Numbers, but after TWICE doing this, I got the message (each time):
The wizard was interrupted before Dragon NaturallySpeaking could completely installed.
Your system has not been modified. To complete installation at another time, please run setup again.
Click Finish to exit the wizard.
If you say "no" you get:
The wizard was interupted before Dragon NaturallySpeaking could be completely installed.
Your system has not been modified. To install this program at a later time, please run the installation again.
This is a pain.
I tried running the .msi file and got this message:
Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 requires elevation. Please run setup.exe from the installation source.
– I tried to follow instructions and now in my list of programs, the following shows up: "MSXML 4.0 SP2 Parser and SDK" but the problem was STILL not resolved.
