Default Re: 6.1.37 breaks backwards compatibility with HALi?

Just upgraded and I had the break with TellMe application. Is it posted anymore for people? I really only used it for Random Text to speech so I configured HAL to do it for me instead. Probably need to update the documentation for random TTS as I couldn't find details on it and fumbled through until I figured it out when I hovered the Random speak check box.

"Error 1800
File open error: c:\program files\hal\data\macro.dbf
could not open marco.dbf exclusive"

That indicates that the file was open when you installed HAL. I would close HAL, check task manager to make sure there are no HAL tasks running and reinstall HAL.

canadauser,

The only time I've seen it have File Open error is when I did not run it as Administrator.
Since yours also states exclusive, it could be that HAL is running. Like others said, I would go into Task Manager and stop anything with HAL listed.

I am not home right now. But when I'm back in town, I can package up the new version of Tell Me and provide a link if wanted

David,

Great requests... I will make sure both are part of the new 7.0 release.

Regards,

Tim
