Subject: RE: voice labelling folders

RE: voice labelling folders

From: Aman Singer <aman_at_asinger.net>
Date: 2006-05-26

Hi, Brian.
        I hope Brian Wolven, who was good enough to write this, is still
around and will answer, as he knows the windows scripting host, and that the
folks who wrote the HTA application are also reading, as this may be an
issue with that, though I doubt it. When I type this error into google, it
gives me quite a few sites telling me that I need to reinstall or reregister
the windows scripting host. Were I you, I'd follow the instructions at
        http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q311269
                All I can suggest otherwise is that you make sure your
windows scripting host is properly installed, possibly reinstalling it's
latest version.
        HTH.
        Aman

Hi again Aman

OK, I extracted the files into a folder, then ran the file you suggested. I

get the following error:
Error
A Runtime Error has occurred.
Do you wish to Debug?
Line: 97
Error: ActiveX component can't create object: 'Scripting.FileSystemObject'
 Yes No

I select "no", then indeed I can tab through the options. I specify the
path of the folder I wish to create a label for. Then, when I select the
"start voicebox" button, I get this error.
Error
A Runtime Error has occurred.
Do you wish to Debug?
Line: 267
Error: Library not registered.
 Yes No

Any suggestions please?
