Really? You're asking if you should upgrade to a recent os or an old os? Lol

@fxrtst Sorry late on my reply but looks like you found the issue anyway... I haven't installed Bing Speech yet but will eventually.... All my PCs run Windows 10...

I only ask about OS because when they release a new OS seems to be a lot of incompatibility with hardware drivers and some support for software. A lot of times it's not worth the trouble to upgrade if it breaks 1/2 my stuff. Especially because i run boot camp on mac. I only have one PC. Even tho i never go to the Mac side. Mac are the best PCs i've ever owned. But even these are 2009, mac pros and 17 inch laptop, one air etc etc

I still run Windows 8.1 and prefer it over 10. If your going from 7, get 10. It's less of a learning curve and is more like 7 than 8.1 will ever be.

ARC always ensures compatibility with the latest operating system - because that makes sense for progress

Maybe i should buy a computer (PC) just for ARC running 10 for all my robot testing:) What a great excuse! Done!

Loving the Emotion plug

@fxrtst... I am getting a rather "verbose" error as well with the emotion plugin... It appears in the control window and I tried to copy and paste the error but it can't be copy and pasted... I am using windows 10

*EDIT* You must have got it working? How? I still get an error...

Hey guys just to add in case anyone is less than happy with windows 10, i have the bing speech recognition as well as the cognitive plugins working fine on both windows 10 and 8. By the way even though i hate to give Microshaft any credit, these plugins/services are working great and alot of fun. Adds a whole other dimension to my bots. Very cool.

@fxrtst I realize this is a pretty old topic now but in case you didnt manage to fix the bing speech error you mentioned, I had the same issue as well on windows 8 and what i did to fix it was reinstall the Microsoft C++ redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 package. This package is required for the plugin to work and although i had it previously installed, a reinstall was required after an ARC update for Bing Speech to work again. I had the exact error report you mentioned until i did the reinstall and after Bing worked perfectly again.

Oops soory i see i missed a post and you did get it working...disregard previous.
