locked Re: Question about SAPI 4 version of eloquence


 

Hi,

You may need to hunt for this, as Windows CE Services 2.0 is not maintained, replaced by Microsoft ActiveSync, which in turn was replaced by Windows Mobile Device Center, which in turn was discontinued when Windows Mobile 6.x became unsupported. The voices from the FTP site are really meant for embedded devices running Windows CE and Pocket PC operating systems, which are completely different things than Windows 10 (API’s may look similar, but Windows CE cannot run apps written for Windows 10, nor Windows 10 can execute Windows CE executables).

Talking about Windows CE brings back all sorts of memories about a device from a long time ago, one that actually launched my dreams of becoming a software developer…

Cheers,

Joseph

Afoter downloading this, it turns out that you need windows ce services 2.0 to install this.

Where are the proper installers for this?

However, you are in a list of files with names that don’t tell us what the files are for.  Which one or ones should be used for what?
