Marc, your issue is that i missed a dll when i uploaded it. its now there, and tested on xp. so please try again, you may have to downgrade then upgrade again.
I am happy to report that it's working fine now.
Thanks for your help, I really like this software, makes the whole experience so much easier
Toby, do you use speech by chance? 1.0.97 has a speech bug on connect. will be fixed in 98
