In an email that I kept from this list. It was from about 6 months ago.

Thanks for that the command now worked.
And the list voices_SAPI4.vbs script now tells me what voices I have.

But when I install IBM Via Voice TTS it comes up with the following
error. This happens just after I launch the executable file to install it.
Error message:

ViaVoice TTS
The InstallShield Engine (iKernel.exe) could not be launched.Class not

I clicked OK and it exited the installer.
Do you know how to fix this?
If you could help me out here I would greatly appreciate it.
