Hello, I recently purchased and installed Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10, and it installs okay, updates fine, loads and runs, but EVERY time I start it, it does the "please wait while Windows configures Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10", making every time I want to use it a 5 minute process...anyone run into this problem before?  I tried completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it again w/ the same results.

I am using XP not vista, and it installs w/o any errors, and doesn't give any "errors" when I try to start it, it just literally does the please wait while windows configures, etc 10 minute process before each time the program will launch.

They told me to run some FLEXNet Connect Manager Uninstall tool, and it didn't fix the problem, now I would have to pay to call them back.

I've had a simular problem when upgrading Office from 2003 to 2007. Everytime a user tried to use one of the application in the office suite, it would keep reinstalling itself. It turned out to be a corrupted install. What I ended up doing for that case was:
1) Uninstall the program
2) Use a restore point from a week prior to the installation
3) Reinstall the program.
If all else fails you can do a repair install to clean the registery.

Hi,

It may be the Windows Installer needs a cleanup. Microsoft have this tool, which has helped me with a similar issue.
