Hi Alan- Do you have access to the whole DC3 forum? If so, search "Merlin is Silent" and you'll find a January 28,2009 thread that might help. I had the same problem, and it provided the necessary files. You can also see a similar thread from me this week on the topic. I installed everything on a Win7 machine, and it works great. Also, after you get it working, try the talking Parrot "Peedy". He's a scream. Best, Rob
