A referral was returned from the server.
Installed Vista SP1 a few days ago, and when trying to open Speech Recognition, On-Screen Keyboard and Narrator, I get the following message:
A referral was returned from the server."
Typically, this has something to do with the UAC (User Access Control) in Vista, and the programs were working well before the update - though I hadn't used it for about a week before the update.
When I just click the shortcut on the Start Menu, the above message appears. the account I am using is an administrator account, and even if the program is 'Run as Administrator' the message still appears. The program functions normally if UAC is disabled, however this will clearly compromise the security of my system.
I am using Vista Home Premium, and as such Local Security Policy is not available, and cannot be snapped in via mmc.exe.
Surely the SP1 update should have been tested for this? Has anyone else come across the same problem, especially to Microsoft own products.
Can anyone suggest a fix to this issue, without disabling UAC?
