Yes I seem to remember having to kill off some wine-preloader processes  
after failures but not sure if it was in this same context.

BTW try pgrep ;)

Again I think this was covered in earlier posts but I seem to recall wine  
not being able to control the recording level. I set it to a suitable  
level before starting NS IIRC and it got through to the dictation training  

Depending on your hardware and mixer software you should make sure you  
over-driving the sound by putting sliders at 100% and take care not to  
confuse mike input and the mike capture settings.

  'mik' seems to be the ammount of the mike input that is fed back to the  
output mixer and is independant of the mike capture level.

It is mike capture you need for NS.

What's strange about that? Most software works that way !

I am still running wine-20050524 that I used with NS7, and that worked  
well. It may be useful to post the version you are using for the record .

Glad to hear you're getting somewhere.
