ALERT! Windows 11 is HORRIBLE with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Don't let your computer install it under any circumstances. You can't use any applications such as Firefox or Google mail even when you have the proper dragon extension installed. It also seems to disable the few voice commands available to use with Photoshop.

Regarding advanced scripting commands, I found if I change my commands from SendDragonKeys to SendKeys it works fine.

Thanks Mark

I can't say I can reproduce serious problems with Windows 11. It works very well on my system in combination with Dragon® (I remain faithful to version to 15.3!).

 

The only big downside is the new Windows 11 Explorer main menu, which is a real pain in the keister. But I have successfully fixed this with the tool StartAllBack. Such a relief! It tends to make Dragon® respond faster too :-)

 

However, since this is most probably manipulating the explorerframe.dll it may cause issues with some applications. Quiet Box© users for instance, should not install StartAllBack because it seems to mask the window that's on top of the Z order.

Startallback restored the explorer bar but it did not help install Dragon 15.6.1 on my new Dell XPS desktop. I have followed every suggestion made by Nuance Support. I have, by actual count tried 24 times with same error "Error opening installation file."  I asked if I could revert to 15.3 and they said they did not have a download link for that. I have given up.

It sounds like you simply downloaded an incomplete installation. This is not unusual with slower broadband connections. However, we were surprised that Nuance support didn't at least suggest downloading again.

 

Nuance doesn't support out of date versions of Dragon but you can get it from us by clicking Ver. 15.61 which is a lifetime download w/Installation/User Guide of Ver. 15.3 & Ver.15.6,1 details on fixing 28 sandtraps and other perks. Note that because of the complexity involved, we are charging a $20 service fee. Our server has a 5 Gb bandwidth but of course it can only run as fast as your end.

 

We also offer a flash drive option in case the download doesn't work.

I am on Comcast Xfinity and my download steed is 600mbps (Just tested) I downloaded at least 5 times from a link they provided to my 1 tb SSD drive. My PC has 32gb of RAM and is powered by an Intel I-9 chip. The dfownload is complete because I used my old PC to check it off. I did not have it active on boty PC's at the same time.BTW, I am a retired IBM systems engineering manager.

An i9 with 32 Gb of RAM and an SSD drive doesn't make any difference. While you have an exceedingly fast download the process depends on the broadband speed between you and the Nuance server. Assuming there are no bottlenecks between you and the Nuance server, which we believe is 1 Gb, the download should work very well. This download should take less than 15 minutes. If it is closer to 45 minutes, you will likely receive a partial. If your Dragon executable includes a green flame icon, it should be intact but there is no way to fully verify the executable until you run it. We are not experts but if your executable fails, after rebooting your computer, it still sounds like a partial download 

 

PS: Our server, which we share with the DEA, CIA, IRS and FBI has a 5 Gb broadband which shouldn't make any difference

I know the processor doesn't make any difference, I have used Dragon since v5. I tried the download on my other PC and it works so it is complete. I would try your the $20 download, but 15.3 is not listed as an option. 15.61 is there as is v14.
