speechsdk workaround

So I was having trouble with speechsdk and the most recent version of winetricks. (It's them, not us.) I was able to set sapi under library to "native," (in winecfg, Library, new override for library, type sapi, then set it to native.) Scrivener started right up without speechsdk installed...

Re: Lions, and tigers, and...viruses?

Their freedom *is* being impinged on. Whether that impingement is a small price or too high a price to pay for the greater good is a debate the public should have every time any restriction of freedom is suggested. I get your point, and I do agree. But in this case, I think the greater good (some r...

Oh no. :( I hadn't realized he was doing poorly. Protesting naked outside of our local Stop & Shop in memorium doesn't have the same ring, though.

Re: How do I start beta testing Scrivener 3 for Windows?

And if it hasn't been mentioned enough, keep backups of your old projects in the old Scrivener format, just in case Scrivener 3 doesn't work for you. It should, since it's a release candidate, but there are still bugs. You can't go back to the old format once you upgrade in a purely windows environm...

Re: Warning on WINE 5.9

Do you have speechsdk installed? (via winetricks) It installs but will crash unless that's installed.

ETA: I tried in a clean prefix with RC6, and it installed and ran fine once I installed speechsdk via winetricks. This is the 64-bit version. (I haven't tried the 32-bit one.)

I went house on the key combination, and couldn't make it crash. Maybe a video card thing? (Nvidia, proprietary, geforce 1050ti.)

Ugh. :( Here's hoping it goes and stays gone, and the next brain swab comes out clean! Or are they doing antibody testing there yet?

Warning on WINE 5.9

So this is one of the rare times when newer isn't better. :) WINE 5.9 has some pretty serious regressions that older versions don't have. Scrivener runs, but crashes on exit. (Mouse movements are reversed in Skyrim...) I'd hold off upgrading to 5.9 for the time being. Hopefully the balance will be f...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

Thanks for the comment. Apologies it was so late. I got really sick, and haven't been active with anything online, really. Glad to hear you're working the project out though. Best of luck with it! Ack. :( Hopefully it's not covid-19. How you feeling now? I had a friend with La 'Rona, and he was pre...

Re: Lions, and tigers, and...viruses?

We're getting by. Our state is starting to reopen some things, even though there are still over 100 deaths a day. Masks are mandatory, although there's a not-insignificant amount who think their freedom is being impinged upon. This crisis is really showing the best and worst of people, that's for ce...

Are you having network issues? Could it be the update server timing out?

Re: Upgraded scrivener for wine and then shortcut deleted itself.

I don't recommend using playonlinux. I use wine-staging (currently at 5.4). If you're using the beta, you'll need speechsdk and .net 4.6 or above. (See Tiho's stickied post on this forum for instructions. You need to uninstall wine-mono from the wineprefix.)

Re: WINE 5.0 and Scrivener 2.9.0.x

I just updated my Ubuntu to the latest version, 20.04, and Scrivener 2.9.0.x via Wine no longer works. This could be because the new Ubuntu version now has Wine 5.0. But I installed speechsdk and it makes no difference. (I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Scrivener 2.9.0.4 beta, both di...
