Could you please make sure again, that you are using the new version of
rbutil (the link bluebrother gave you). Because the newer version
shouldnt have a "useSapi4" checkbox :-)

Then please report exactly which combobox titles are not readout into
the patchtracker entry i posted early. Please describe in which screen
you are, and use something like "go to Cancel, press tab two times" to
describe which combobox you mean. We need to know exactly which one
doesnt speak its title, so we can fix this.

I am sorry, with this i meant the main-screen, so not any Menu :-).
If you are on the first Tab (Quickstart, the one with complete and small
Installation) you press ctrl+tab 5 times, and get to the Tab with the
Manual information. The tab after this, contains the Info screen.

To get the buildsystem to use a POOL of voiceclips, define a enviroment
variable named POOL which points to the directory you want to store the

So in cygwin type:
"export POOL=voice" before you type the "make voice" command.
