Re: How is the acmStream opened?

I downloaded windows media player 7.1 as suggested, changed to 22.05 khz 16 bit mono with the same "Failed to open acmStream" result. 
I can record and playback, but get the aforementioned prompt when I touch the OK.   
I have tried this in 1-18-4 and 1-17-5 with the same result. 
I do have Realplayer installed.  Would that conflict with media player?  I am using windows 2000.

Install windows media player 7.x and see if that helps.  Looks like beta 8 is out too, though we haven't tried it.
Note that by clicking ok with the screen as you have it, you will be saving the file in mp3 format which is not yet supported by 4.x ballot station (3.x works).  Click format first and change to PCM 22khz mono before clicking OK.  That may well work around your original problem as well.

After recording and clicking the OK the GEMS Exception prompt "failed to open acmStream" appears.  What is the acmStream and how is it opened?  Using GEMS-1-18-4 and TSText-1-18-5.
