    It should be included in Windows 7.

    What is the exact error message you receive?

    What program is it that you're trying to install?

    I tried looking for a trial download, but was unsuccessful.

    I did find this on their site:

    Have the minimum computer specifications changed for Version 10?


    No: the minimum requirements are still 1 gHz, and for RAM, 512 MB on Windows 2000 and XP and 1 GB on Windows Vista. L2 cache size makes a bigger difference in version 10; we recommend 1 MB for the L2 cache.
    • IMPORTANT NOTE: Unlike previous versions of Dragon, version 10 requires the SSE2 instruction set for Pentium and AMD processors.
    • The following website includes information on SSE2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSE2
    • Determine if a computer supports SSE2: There are various utilities available to determine if a computer's processor supports SSE2. The following CPU-Z utility is available for free and is updated regularly: http://cpuid.com/cpuz.php
    • When running the CPU-Z utility, you should see SSE2 listed in the "Instructions" on the "CPU" tab; if it is not listed, then unfortunately the processor does not support SSE2.
    Truthfully, I'd email them and see if Windows 7 is supported.
    I looked at Microsoft's site and the C++ runtime states:

    System Requirements

    • Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2; Windows Vista; Windows XP

    Sorry, can't help, that's the latest package.

    Like I said, shoot them off an email.
