    MS Agent for Windows 8???


    I am running Windows 8 Release Preview and I am trying to install Casino Verite Software. When I launch program, error comes up, saying file agentctl.dll is missing.

    I've found out that it is a MS Agent enabled program, and I would need to install MS Agent hotfix in Windows 7 for it to work. However, it's not available for Windows 8. Does anybody know, if there is a way around it?

    You could try installing the hotfix for windows 7 on there as it may work.

    It's in msu format, so there is no compatibility mode for it.

    I have Windows 8.1 and I was able to get msagent.exe to work but you will also need some other files. You will need a voice for the program and some other kind of file called "tv_enua.exe" ... I have the files on my drop box that came with a program called "Alladdins Reading Genie" you might Google that software and see if the package is still available for download. Once I installed according to their instructions with the 3 files then it worked fine. Again these are the 3 files I think you will need:
    • msagent.exe
    • tv_enua.exe
    • genie.exe (or some other msagent character you can get from the website below)

    msagent characters can be found here: Microsoft Agent Characters | Text To Speech Software with Natural Voices - Zero2000.com

    Ok just trying to help... I am new here and really don't want to break any rules by posting a link... but if that was a problem please pm me.

    Sincerely trying to help,
