    Hi girls and guys., I have had a new system for several months. AVeriton 7500 from Acer. My system is Windows XP Professional. I have a Program called Dragon Natural Speaking .which converts voice into print. i have Parkinsosn's and it is really helpfull.
    My problem is.It would not initialize.to day( the drogon program.)
    I got t the following error message: "Couldn't initialize the application because of insufficient read/write priviledges in the program directory. Program, directory is c:\ProgramFiles\Dragon\NaturallySpeaking\Program I had to make myself an administrator yesterday in order to do a backup. I feel it must be to do with that. I have been reading help and manuals all day and still can't get program to workif anyone has an idea i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you Larry

    I suspect that the program will only work if you are logged in exactly the same as when it was installed (and as used previously).

    When you logged in differently to do the back-up, the system is preventing access. Thats a "feature" of XP Pro, its designed for the security needs of a corporate world, and becomes a frustration for most home users.

    Can you power down, power up and log in as you used to?
