Just because it is developed by Microsoft does not mean it is compatible with newer versions of Windows if it is too old.  I don’t know if installing a version of SAPI that is too old might damage something in new or recent versions of Windows.  But you can’t assume when you install something like that that is  like eighteen or twenty years old.

It's freakin' SAPI. I seriously doubt that it's going to damage windows in any way. After all, wasn't SAPI created by Microsoft?


Thanks,
