Well - as I wrote: When I copied my trained model data from windows (just the 
c:\ViaVoice\users\rene - no registriy stuff ...) The ViaVoice application did 
no longer wanted to run the audio setup - but complained it does not see 
mixer elements itself - so I assume the registry will not help me - since 
ViaVoice "engine or frontend applicatoins" want control about the volume 
mixer elements itself ...

Yes, of course I run ALSA and OSS emulation ,-) - but do you also propose to 
use Wine's ALSA backend? That one seems not work as well as the oss backend, 
at least on my workstation ...
