I have developed a Microsoft Access program that uses a reference to Microsoft Speech Object Library. It allows me to add a little "fun" into an otherwise boring application.
I have developed the app on a Windows 7 PC that has Windows SAPI version 5.4 but when I try to run it on XP machines which runs an earlier version of SAPI, I get a missing or broken reference.
I want to distribute this as an MDE that will run with MS Access 2007 runtime and have it work on either Windows 7 or XP machines.
Does anyone know how I can distribute it with an earlier version SAPI? I know where to find the DLL on an XP Machine. Is it simply a case of distributing the earlier SAPI and registering it on the target machine or is that likely to mess things up badly?
