Hi,

We have DS5000's using DSS Pro Player R5 Dictation / Transcription.

 

We migrated from XP to Win 8 machines.

 

I read online that to save the user folder settings, to take the .xml file from the WinXP machine - \documents and settings\users\USER\Olympus\DSS Player\FILE.xml

 

We did this and copied it to the Win 8 profile: \users\USER\appdata\Olympus\DSS Player\FILE.xml

 

However, when I launch DSS Player in the Win8 machine, all files in the above appdata folder disappear! Hence it does not show the folder settings from WinXP

 

Can you help?? We did successfully manage to get one of the Transcription PC's with the correct folder settings in Win8, but I don't know how to copy those settings? Even if we could get this much done it would be a good start

 

Thank you

            Welcome to the World's Most Popular Speech Recognition Forum

The simplest solution is to upgrade to the DSS Player Pro 7 utility which is inexpensive and fully Windows 8.1 compatible. This will eliminate the need of playing games with the Ver. 5 utility.

Thanks for the response.

The software installed no problems on the 8.1 machines, and somehow I managed to migrate the folder settings on ONE of the machines! I am not sure if I have the need to change software, I am thinking there is a workaround. But, I am open to your guys suggestions.

If you say above, to upgrade to Pro 7, would I be able to import folder settings from R5 on the XP machines?

I can't remember how I managed to restore one of the Transcription module settings on one PC, but won't work with the others?!

There is probably a master .ini file that records your options but we don't know where it is or if it would work in the DSS Player Pro 7 utility. However, perhaps more importantly, if you're DSS Player Pro 5 utility is functioning in Windows 8, don't upset the apple cart and stay with what you have.

PROBLEM SOLVED!

DSS Player Pro 5, and the old foot-pedal are working fine in Windows 8.

To restore the folder settings, I imported the XML file into: c:\users\USER\appdata\roaming\ instead of c:\users\USER\appdata\local

All appears to be good now! Hopefully this info will help someone in the future

Our apologies for the previous bad advice. We were informed that the DSS Player Pro 5 utility was not Windows 8 compatible. Obviously that advice was incorrect and thank you for reporting your progress.
