Hey All...TIA..

I have just installed the latest and greatest version of Dragon voice recognition (v.14, from Nuance). After several calls to tech support and much hair pulling, the program seems to have installed, but.... When I try to execute the program. it tells me that the winutils.dll is missing, and that I should re-install, which I have done several times. Nuance techies tell me that it's a windows 7 issue, and that it's been deleted somehow. I've tried to research where this dll is so I can download it, but I have found precious little that appears to be reputable and/or informative and helpful. I did a scannow, on my ssytem but this dll is nowhere to be found on my system. 

Anyone have any thoughts or info?

Duplicate topic and response at http://www.sevenforums.com/software/381594-winutils-dll-missing.html .


The file appears to be installed/used by any number of applications...it is not a Windows system file.


I would reinstall the program, based on response by Dragon user in link above.
