That error doesn't sound familiar. Since you're running windows XP, one thing you can try is the FixRegistry utility, see the post at viewtopic.php?f=15&t=6075
, there are instructions for using this utility near the bottom of the page.
If the FixRegistry utility doesn't help, we write debug files from TextAloud that may help with figuring out what is happening. Duplicate the error, then click Help -> Open Data Folder from the TextAloud Help menu. In the folder displayed, locate the files TextAloudMP3.dbg, TextAloudMP31.dbg, TextAloudMP32.dbg and TextAloudMP33.dbg. Please attach these files to an email and send to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Also in your email, let me know about any errors reported by the FixRegistry utility.
