    dear all
    i'm using windows vista and when i try to open voice in conferances of yahoo
    messenger i always can't open it and i really need it abd everytime i try to
    open voice it displays a msg that audio compression codes are missing or
    incompatible so i tried to find why is that and found in yahoo this help but
    couldn't apply it on windows vista so plz can anyone help me in this problem

    yahoo help:-
    1-Press the "Start" button in the lower left corner of the screen.
    2-Select "Settings," then "Control Panel," then "Multimedia." The Multimedia
    Properties window should be displayed.
    3-Click on the "Devices" tab.
    4-Click on the plus-symbol (+) next to "Audio Compression Codecs" to expand
    the list of installed codecs.
    5-If "DSP Group TrueSpeech(TM) Audio CODEC" is displayed, go to step 13.
    6-If "DSP Group TrueSpeech(TM) Audio CODEC" is not displayed, it needs to be
    installed. You will need your Windows CD-ROM (or will need to locate the
    Windows installation files on your computer).
    7-Press the "Add" button. The Add window should be displayed.
    8-Select "DSP Group TrueSpeech(TM) Audio CODEC" from the list of drivers,
    then press the "OK" button.
    9-If the "Driver Exists" warning is displayed, press the "Current" button.
    10-You will be prompted to restart Windows. You may restart now or later,
    but the codec will not be available until you restart your computer.
    11-If you are still receiving the same error message after restarting your
    computer, continue to the next step.
    12-Open the Multimedia Devices window as directed in steps 1-4.
    13-Select "DSP Group TrueSpeech(TM) Audio CODEC" from the list of Multimedia
    Devices, and press the "Properties" button. The Properties window is
    displayed.
    14-Verify that "Use this audio codec" is selected and press the "OK" button.
    Press the "OK" button in the Multimedia Properties window, and try to start
    a voice chat again

    Vista doesn't have a "multimedia" icon like XP did.....
    so I can't seem to get to the part to add the codecs

    I tried that and it didnt work, I have no Audio Compression Codecs anywhere
    on my stupid vista computer.
    Anyone else?
    I want to voice chat with friends, i'm sick on not being able to do so. I
    wish the hell I had never gotten vista. Nothing is compatible on this stupid
    thing. I've wasted 1800bucks on a new comp that doesnt work any better then
    the one i had built by a friend.
